Windows 8 asks for an email address to use the remote desktop control. Alex Chambers July 23, 2014 How would I be able to access my home computer from work? Would I use the 192.168.x.xx number or the public ip? I’ve tried both, my computer is on and I am unable to connect.

You said there was a link to enable port 339, is that what I need to do? All I see in remote desktop is my laptop. redbird107 July 24, 2014 Hi Miguel. Thanks for a great tutorial. My sister has Win7 and I have Win8. I want remote access to her computer, so we followed your step by step video. When I attempt to connect, I get a message “Remote Desktop Gateway Server is temporarily unavailable.” My sister (Win7) was on-line, so not sure what we did wrong. We did get her IP addy and I set it up on my remote access window like you showed. I know we tried doing this many months ago from other instructions I found here and there on line, so not sure if we made some changes somewhere else on her computer or mine that maybe we shouldn’t have? Any ideas, or just what is that message telling me, exactly? Thanks! Kathy Bartlomiej Dyszkiewicz July 24, 2014 Thank you Miguel, I’m happy I can access my computer at work from anywhere now! SHUTMEUPriot July 24, 2014 What to I do if I dont have the options for remote desktop at 1:39 are not there? Kim Coleman July 24, 2014 You tutorial was very easy to follow but if you could help me with my problem with the password, it says it is incorrect when it is not. Has anyone else had this problem? I hope I can find out before this weekend. I want to connect from my laptop to my business computer. Kim Coleman July 24, 2014 Everything works fine until it asks me for my password, it says it is incorrect but I know it is right. What am I doing wrong? LozerClub July 24, 2014 Windows 7 Professional and Ultimate only right? Darchyism July 24, 2014 Bang on!

To see the Operating systems (of Windows) which support remote connections click this link(instead of ” – “, put a slash ( / ) : bit.ly-19FW0Jd Kazmahu July 24, 2014 What can you do if you don’t have the right options available on the 7 machine? When I follow these steps, it says something about remote assistance with a single checkbox, but enabling that doesn’t work (I’ve checked everything else and can access shared files just fine) and I can’t seem to find anything about remote desktop.
