Sorry, one more thing.

You mentioned a VPN. Remote Desktop is not actually a VPN. A VPN has to be set up between two VPN capable routers, one at home and one at your work or you can use a VPN client on your computer at home as long as your work router supports a VPN.

Then once the connection is established you have access to files on your work network, but you would need to have all applications you use on your home computer.

With Remote Desktop you connect and once the connection is established it is like you are sitting at your work computer, you can use all applications and all files on that network as well as print to printers at your office.

Hi again all,

I am wondering how the remote connections work with Jaws 18.

I am not talking about the tandem help but actually being at home and using a VPN connection back to the office.

I believe that I have the professional copy of Jaws 18 and I should be able to do it but I don’t know how it works.

Anyone here done it and how well does it work?

We are doing some updates to the computer infrastructure and I want to make sure that we have all things necessary to do all the things we may want to do.

I have had to use such a feature in the past with WE and Windows 7.

I am now running Win 10 and Jaws 18 on my work unit.

Can I pull this off?

If I can’t do it with a VPN connection through the firewall will it work with a Remote Desktop License?


Thanks for any advice
