Connect to another computer using Remote Desktop Connection

With Remote Desktop Connection, you can connect to a computer running Windows from another computer running Windows that's connected to the same network or to the Internet. For example, you can use all of your work computer's programs, files, and network resources from your home computer, and it's just like you're sitting in front of your computer at work.

To connect to a remote computer, that computer must be turned on, it must have a network connection, Remote Desktop must be enabled, you must have network access to the remote computer (this could be through the Internet), and you must have permission to connect. For permission to connect, you must be on the list of users. Before you start a connection, it's a good idea to look up the name of the computer you're connecting to and to make sure Remote Desktop connections are allowed through its firewall.
If you're user account doesn't require a password to sign in, you'll need to add a password before you're allowed to start a connection with a remote computer.

To allow Remote Desktop connections through a Windows Firewall

If you're having trouble connecting, Remote Desktop connections might be getting blocked by the firewall. Here's how to change that setting on a Windows PC. If you're using another firewall, make sure the port for Remote Desktop (usually 3389) is open.

2.       Click System and Security.
3.       Click Allow a program through Windows Firewall under Windows Firewall.

5.       Click OK to save the changes.

Your user account must have a password before you can use Remote Desktop to connect to another computer.
1.       Click Start and select Control Panel.
2.       Double-click User Accounts.
3.       Select Change your Windows Password under User Accounts.
4.       Click Create a password for your account and follow the instructions on the screen.

To start Remote Desktop on the computer you want to work from

2.       In the Computer box, type the name of the computer that you want to connect to, and then click Connect. (You can also type the IP address instead of the computer name.)

·         Redirecting a device on your computer makes it available for use in a Remote Desktop session. If a Remote Desktop Connection dialog box appears after you click Connect and enter your credentials, you can redirect local devices and resources, such as your local drives or Clipboard. Click Details, and then select the check box for each item you want to redirect.
