    Remote Desktop Connection problems


    Have you tried Remote Desktop Connection, to connect from your Windows 10 laptop to your Windows 7 desktop? Try it first, post back and tell how it went.

    Some additional help because you mentioned you are a remote newbie *Wink. The windows 7 related tutorials from our sister site the Seven Forums:


    1. On Windows 7 desktop, set network location to either Home or Work (I recommend Work):
    2. On Windows 7 desktop, allow incoming remote connections:
    3. On Windows 7 desktop, find out its IP address:
    4. On Windows 10 laptop, start the Remote Desktop application and connect to the Windows 7 desktop using the IP address from step 3 above (see Part Three in the tutorial):
    Try the above, post back how it went.
     
  3. Windows 7 and Remote Desktop Connection

    It is a Windows server that they are connecting too. Also forgot to mention in my previous post that it isnt for personal use its for business use. So they'd have to pay for the licensing.

    As for the RDP being limited to two users, its never been a problem with them in the past. In fact, there are 3 total IP's that they can remote into and use. As for how many connections are limited per IP, I am unsure. We dont have control over that since it is not our server. I assume since there are 3 IP options to choose from so the users can do their work, each IP is stuck with 2 users per IP.
