Remotely control PC over Internet
Remote control has brought great convenience to our daily work and life. In the past, when there’s no remote control yet, it costs much time and energy for people to get important information stored in a far-away computer. But nowadays, people could easily remotely control PC over Internet with the help of remote control software.
Briefly, there are two kinds of situations when remotely accessing a computer over Internet. One is to remotely connect two computers that are on the same network, another is to remotely connect two computers that are on different networks. According to different situations, we need to choose different remote access solutions.
If you want to remotely connect two computers that are on the same network, then things will be much easier. You can choose RDP, the Windows 10 built-in remote control program. You could remotely access a computer over the Internet using IP address and user name of the host computer (the controlled computer) without downloading any application.
If you want to remotely connect two computers that are on different networks, RDP is not suitable for novice users at all. You need to get a static IP address, find the public IP address, set up port forwarding. The configuration process is really complicated. At this time, you can use Chrome Remote Desktop, a browser extension of Google, enabling you to remotely control another computer on different networks. However, according to feedback from some users, Chrome Remote Desktop has many internal problems, like Chrome Remote Desktop timeout.
Therefore, in this post, we’ll introduce you to the easiest remote access solution which can be used under either circumstance, no matter the two computers are on the same network or on different networks.
