Very quickly:

Install JAWS on both machines, preferably the same version and build.
By default, the remote access client and server should be enabled but the new version will warn you and give you the option to turn it on if required.
Load up on one machine with JAWS running.
Open the remote desktop connection utility in Windows Accessories.
You will need the computer name of the other machine that you wish to connect to here.
Enter the computer name and open the options, you will need the username and password of another account on the machine that you aare trying to connect to, assuming that it is on the same network and domain etc.
If it is not, you will need to look further in to IP addresses to connect and possibly, port forwarding on the router.

My apologies to all I did not mean to hit send with a blank body on my message.
In light of the news, and warnings to work from home. I need to make sure that I am prepared. I am working with windows 10 and jaws 2020. I have purchased the remote license but I’ve never used it. Can anyone give me instructions on how to connect my two units, and how to use jaws through the remote access?
Any assistance is really appreciate it. Thank you
