Re: Remote connections?

Hi there!  Some companies use a VPn in addition to a Virtual Desktop infrastructure.  You should not have problems accessing a VPN.  If you need to access a computer remotely, you will need the Remote access license, which is sold separately from the traditional JAWS home or professional license.  Once you have that, you should be able to connect to your work computer utilizing JAWS.

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
