  1. AyzousMAC:: what Micrsost Remote Desktop from the Mac App Store??? have you made a tutorial on that??? i bearly found out about in but i dont know how to set it up yet

  2. I've been using this for a few years now. Was wondering if you've ever ran into this… After a fresh reboot of the remote pc (laptop) it takes, 3, 4, 5 times for RDC to work. I start it up, put in id/pw, it connects, but hangs. I have to (most times) kill the proc id for RDC, and try again. Its been aggravating. Thx!

  3. im running win 7, at 1:33 on your video i do not see anything other than remote assistance box, the bottom part of the system properties where is says remote desktop is not visable to me on my pc, i only see remote assistance thats all, could you help?

  4. I'm trying to connect to my Win10 VM set to a Bridged Adapter with a static IP. It's telling me that the "Remote Desktop Connection cannot verify the identity of the computer that you want to connect to. Try reconnecting to the Windows-based computer, or contact our administrator"

    My Mac is set to DHCP. I changed the preferences to the VMs computer name and provided the credentials and have not added the static IP to the Domain and tried connecting. I've taken the IP off of the Domain and tried connecting. I must be missing one tiny little step.

    The settings in the VM have been changed to accept RDP. I've even went to the extent of enabling file sharing just in case and I still can't find a connection. Please advise. Thanks, A.

  5. Bloody hell!!! Is everything this complicated on Mac??! I was thinking of getting one, but I don't have 2 years to learn yet ANOTHER OS when I already know an existing one very very well…

  6. Using Windows 8.1: Control Panel > System Security > Windows Firewall > Allow app through Windows Firewall > Remote Desktop & Remote Desktop Remote FX. 

    What if I don't see Remote Desktop Remote FX is it essential to have this working?
