Remote Desktop Connection is a technology that allows you to sit at a computer (sometimes called the client computer) and connect to a remote computer (sometimes called the host computer) in a different location. For example, you can connect to your work computer from your home computer and have access to all of your programs, files, and network resources as though you were in front of your computer at work. You can leave programs running at work and then, when you get home, you can see your work computer's desktop displayed on your home computer, with the same programs running.

There are six steps you'll need to follow to set this up. Each one is explained in detail below.

1. Allow remote connections to the computer you want to access.

2. Make sure Remote Desktop is able to communicate through your firewall.

3. Find the IP address of the computer on your home network that you want to connect to.

4. Open your router's configuration screen and forward TCP port 3389 to the destination computer's IP address.

5. Find your router's public IP address so that Remote Desktop can find it on the Internet.

6. Open Remote Desktop Connection and connect.

Allow remote connections to the computer you want to access

To access one computer from another computer, you first need to allow remote connections on the computer you want to access, which must be running one of the following versions of Windows:

Windows XP Professional edition

Windows Vista Business, Ultimate, or Enterprise edition

Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, or Enterprise edition

On the computer you want to access, follow these steps:

Open System by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, right-clicking Computer, and then clicking Properties.

In the left pane, click Remote settings.  Administrator permission required If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Under Remote Desktop, select one of the options to allow connections. For more information about these options, see What types of Remote Desktop connections should I allow?
