Remote access has changed the way businesses operate these days. Now, almost anyone is expected to have the ability to access another computer from a remote location. Remote access has truly helped employees address business demands even in the most unforeseen circumstances. It also helped businesses maximize their full potential and efficiency. Remote access has now become a tool dedicated to maximizing business efficiency and enhancing employees’ productivity. However, some remote access solutions might not fit to work on the same network. That’s why it is important for you to know how to use remote access over the internet.
Windows Remote Desktop Connection is one of the most go-to remote access solutions out there since it is both affordable and convenient to use. However, this Microsoft feature is made to be used on the same network only. You may not be able to use Windows Remote Desktop Connection outside of your local network. However, there are still a handful of ways for you to use this tool outside of your network. That is through the help of an internet connection. The first thing you can do to use this tool outside of your network is to establish a Virtual Private Network. This solution is one of the safest as it allows your computer to act as if it’s part of the network you’re trying to remote to.
You can also try to use Windows Remote Desktop Connection and expose it directly to the internet. In order to achieve this, you need to forward all Remote Desktop traffic to the computer you’re trying to remote to. However, this option isn’t necessarily the safest as you’re also exposing your device to a bunch of threats lurking around the internet. The least you can do to make everything a lot safer is to generate strong passwords for your computing device.
