Remoting in to Office System

Messages

I have been looking for hours the process to remote into ones office. The IT guys gave me a cd, to me to 1) start, 2) Run, 3) type in MSTSC, gave me a routing number and said I'd have no problems. I have two machines, 1) with Server 2003, 2) the other with Vista Ultimate. I have been unsessful with both. I don't think I am trying to login from one PC to another. I believe I am logging into the office server.

Question: 1) Is this process the same as remote access from one PC to another?
2) Is the process the same on both Window Platforms
3) Can you any one help guide me?

Grateful in advance.

To anwser qusetion one and two yes
as far as a guide goes the process is pretty straight forward
1) start > run > type in MSTSC
2) when the program load type in the ip address or computer name
3)after the connection to the remote computer is made log in with your user name and password

If you are trying to log in from home to your office or place of work if you dont have a VPN or some other kinda of remote access technology the it wont work. The RDP or Remote Desktop is mainly to display the desktop it still needs a medium to transmit the data.
If you have any other questions please feel free to ask

write us back and tell us how it went

Thanks .. I tried this and I get an error msg stating:

Windows cannot find MSTSC. Please retype and try again.

So, I do ... and of course, the same message appears. Have you seen this as well?

Sounds like the CD they gave you doesn't have the correct software on it. Several companies I have worked for had VPN, and it was passworded differently than just logging into the computer when at the office.

At the office, it was an ethernet connection to the local server, and the user logged in using their computer username and password. VPN had an additional password and username that had to be used to access the office network remotely.
