Remote Access

Hi.  Will Windows Remote Access work to connect a client to a specific computer on a Lan which is a workgroup and not a domain?  If so, how should I address the target host computer?

Thanks for reading this.

RE: Remote Access

Me Again - I should have said I wanted to use Remote Dasktop.  Sorry.

RE: Remote Access

yes it will...just go to the pc and make sure you have it allowed and i would use the IP versus the name

RE: Remote Access

If your looking to share the desktop the Remote Desktop won't work.  What you will need to use is Real VNC, Teamviewer or logmein.

RE: Remote Access

For remote access, we use RHUB- because remote access from any other computer, we also do web conferencing with it with our employee that works in Switzerland. Their website is http://www.rhubcom.com
