Hello. My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

It will vary depending on if you are on windows (what version of windows) or mac pcs?

This guide is for Windows users. (you can also bypass this by using teamviewer)

https://ist.njit.edu/support/home_connection/

Let me know if you need another version of windows or mac directions and we will go from there.

Did you need further suggestions with this issue or need some time today to try it?

(you will have to start with your home pc, then at work)

Or want to try teamviewer to remote in from work?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
ill throw you a tip i just want this too work
Expert:  Isaac Franklin replied 5 months ago.

A VPN is A virtual private network (VPN) is a network that is constructed using public wires — usually the Internet — to connect to a private network, such as a company's internal network. There are a number of systems that enable you to create networks using the Internet as the medium for transporting data.

But, you are not doing this from home. If you read it, it says if you are connecting from home. You may be interested more in the

teamviewer. Give me a minute to get everything for you to use and i will be right back.

Expert:  Isaac Franklin replied 5 months ago.

Okay, this is going to be simple for you. All i need now is the type of pcs you are connecting.

Are they both windows at work and home? Are they both macs? Or one of each?

Expert:  Isaac Franklin replied 5 months ago.

For windows computers, please go to your home computer and download/install/ open program from desktop for teamviewer:

https://www.teamviewer.com/en/

Then you follow this guide:

https://www.teamviewer.com/en/res/pdf/first_steps_unattended_access_en.pdf

(on step two of this, set your password, and then go to step two other box, and make sure create an account

bubble is checked then enter your name and password ***** write it down for work. Then you will go to

your job, download team viewer, then hit sign in and use those exact login/password ***** created and you instantly

connect AS LONG as you leave team viewer running on your home computer.

I can show you if you want by remote or you can follow on screen instructions here?

(i have 3 desktops at my disposal. just performed a link with these between two of them after following steps. instantly connected)
