- How do remote desktop connections work?
Typically, a remote desktop connection from your IT professionals can be setup by utilizing a remote-access Virtual Private Network (VPN). This allows a professional to access your network when necessary for repairs, troubleshooting, software updates, spyware prevention, and more. A VPN can also be helpful if you or other employees need to be able to access your network from a remote location. For a VPN to be setup properly, you would need a remote-access server, a network access server, and the proper client software.
- How do I enable Remote Desktop Services?
You very likely may not have to make any changes to your computer settings, but if so, enabling Remote Desktop Services on your work computer is a fairly simple process, if you know what you’re doing. Before you actually allow remote access, you should always make sure you trust the professional who is requesting Remote Desktop access to your computer. Each operating system varies a bit in terms of the protocol involved with enabling Remote Desktop Services. Some Operating Systems may require you to download and run a Remote Desktop Service program, which should prompt you for steps of action. Your Computer Helper professional will guide you with step-by-step instructions if you do need to make changes to your computer’s settings.If you’re doing all this while you’re either on the phone or chatting with your IT professional, you may need to keep your computer from going into Sleep Mode while connections are being made. Once a connection is made, your IT professional should be able to navigate where they need in order to perform the required functions, regardless of sleep mode or not. You may also need to know the “name” of your computer (i.e. Bobby’s Desktop, Hooper Family Computer, etc). You may also need to keep your computer powered on while changes are being made. If any of this is different for your specific machine, your Computer Helper professional should inform you.
- How do I disable Remote Desktop access?
If you fear you may be in danger of remote access hacking, you need to remove someone’s remote access to your computer, or you’d just like your remote access portal to be closed, you may need to disable Remote Desktop access through your computer. If you already have Remote Desktop access disabled, you won’t need to take any action. If you have previously enabled Remote Desktop Access, your specific protocol might vary, but it is likely very similar to the following process.
