Win10 comes with a complete tutorial on remote desktop and LAN remote connections

How to use Win10’s built-in remote desktop and LAN
Due to the need for remote connection, I spent some time researching the built-in remote connection and remote desktop in Windows
Nowadays, computers are pre installed with the Windows Home Chinese version, and the Home version cannot be remotely controlled by other computers

Windows Home Edition can remotely connect to Professional Edition computers, but cannot be connected to other computers

The professional version can not only control others’ computers, but also be controlled by others

How to check if the device is a home or professional version?

Right click on the computer icon on the desktop and select Properties to view it

Moving on to the main topic:

Controlled end settings:

  1. First, set the IP address to a fixed IP address

Firstly, hold down the win+r key on the desktop and enter cmd on the keyboard

Enter ipconfig/all to view basic IP information

The IPv4 address, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS server in the information will be used in our next step.

  1. Open File Explorer

Find the network on the left side, right-click and select Properties

Click on the connected network

Then, in Properties, double-click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), click on the IP address below, and fill in the corresponding information in the first step. Then, select the DNS server address below, and fill in the DNS server address in the first step for the preferred DNS server. The backup DNS server can use 8.8.8.8, which is an IP address provided by Google as a free DNS server. After filling out everything, press OK (remember to fill in everything!)

  1. Right click on the computer and select Properties. Click on Remote Settings. In the Remote Assistance box, select Allow Remote Assistance to connect to this computer. On the Remote Desktop, select Allow Remote Connection to this computer and select the checkbox below, as shown in the following figure

At this point, the setting of the control end has been completed

Control end:
Press and hold win+r on the desktop to open and run, enter mstsc

Enter to open the remote desktop connection, click on Options – Experience – Select LAN (10Mbps or higher) from the dropdown menu

Click on General and enter the IP address of the controlled end at the computer location, which is the preferred IP address in ipconfig/all

Click on the connection and a dialog box will pop up

The username and password must be entered by the system administrator of the controlled computer

Connection can be achieved immediately

Relying on the above operations, Win10 can achieve remote control in a LAN. However, how to use Win10’s own remote control to help the netizen’s little sister (two people connected to different networks) operate the computer requires more steps. It is more complicated to open a port on the controlled computer to the Internet.

In addition to Win10’s built-in remote connection software, Sunflower and TeamViewer are also excellent remote connection operation software, making connections more convenient and fast. We highly recommend Sunflower, which can achieve stable connections even under normal network conditions.

Some schools may have restrictions on their campus networks, and using sunflowers on such networks may result in situations as shown in the following figure

In the case where the local verification code and password are not displayed (i.e. all are ), and the server in the bottom left corner cannot be connected, the problem can be solved by connecting the controlled computer to the mobile data hotspot of the phone. There is no problem using the campus network for the control end computer test.
