    Connect to Remote Desktop from one Windows 8.1 to another


    I want to connect to Remote Desktop from one Windows 8.1 to another.

    On the 8.1 Machine to be connected remotely to:

    Control Panel\System and Security\System\Remote Settings

    Remote
    Check - Allow Remote Assistance connection to this computer.

    Advanced..
    Check - Allow this computer to be controlled remotely.

    6 Hours
    Check - Create Invitations that can only be used from computers running Windows Vista or higher.

    Firewall settings?

    On the 8.1 computer remotely connected thru:
    Remote Desktop Connection
    Computer:192.168.0.55
    User Name: Computer\User
    **did not work**

    It works fine, follow the advice in the following link. You can also use the IP in place of the User name and the User name may require the -PC part at the end in order to connect, or it may be looking for the user name that is associated with a Microsoft account which would use @Hotmail.com at the end. Depends on how the account was set up.
