  1. How do I configure which devices can connect remotely to my laptop?


    Good day friends,

    Today I setup Chrome Remote Desktop on my laptop, and it is running properly I can access my laptop from my smartphones.

    1. I see that even though I have quit Chrome on my laptop, I can still access it using my phones. Is this normal?
    2. More importantly, is there a way to limit/ restrict which devices can actually connect to my laptop? Even though I have to key in the pin to start a remote session, is there a way I can configure the laptop to accept incoming connections only from pre-specified IP addresses/ device MAC addresses? This is just to prevent unauthorized access of my laptop by someone who can randomly guess/ use brute force to generate the pin. Since every device has a unique IP address/ MAC address, is there a way to use them to authorize only such devices to be able to connect remotely?

    Thanks.


    :)

    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.

    help to remote connect

    No need to setup a permanent remote connection for FB add-on's. I'd suggest Team Viewer. It's free and will allow you to access his pc safely and take control.
