I received an email saying I had an answer to my question, but I don't see an answer anywhere
sorry sir for the delay there was a technical error
so your wife wants to use remote desktop to here work place using a windows 7 machine am i correct
ok all windows 7 operating system is capable of doing remote desktop please click on this link http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Remote-Desktop-Connection-frequently-asked-questions
That link doesn't really answer the question. If she doesn't have a hard drive on her workstation at work, isn't she technically going to a server and the Windows 7 Premier wouldn't allow her to do that?
if the machine doesn't have a hard drive then it's a thin client and its linked to a server
That sounds like the set up - but since she has Windows 7 Premier, will Remote Desktop be able to get to the server?
i will tell you that .the only question is does the machine whether its a hard drive connected or thin client does she gets a windows environment or does she gets a program like open office
She gets the same screen remotely that she gets in the office - the normal Windows screen with her icons..
one moment please
now going through a server is different because if the server is configured not to let here use the Remote desktop.then it wont.the administrator can implement security like firewall not to let her computer ip address to go outside then i wont let
is she using here laptop to work
She has a workstation at work and just purchased this Acer laptop to use when she works from home. She currently uses mine at using Remote Desktop, but that has XP on it.
is that windows Xp professional
can she use remote desktop in this windows Xp prfessional to do here work ?
She's doing that now, but wanted her own machine - hence the Acer laptop, but that has Windows 7.
She can do it.if she can do it in windows Xp machine then windows 7 doesn't matter all she need her on the laptop is a remote desktop which all windows 7 machine have.
she is using this laptop as client to do the work.the server must be running server 2008 which have the capability to accept remote desktop connection.but you need to contact the company system/network administrator and get the settings to do that
Sounds good - this is beginning to make sense now. She is in contact with her admin at work and her doesn't think she will have a problem, but I wanted to verify that with someone on the outside. We'll give it a shot and thanks for your help and time.
what she is getting is a login account in the server which she can only access to do the work.that is not a thin client
did you understand ?
Yes, I understand - I believe you are correct.
is there anything else you want to know
No, I think I'm good.
