Hi All,

I tried several articles which explained very good. But i am unable to get to connect my home computer from office through "REMOTE DESKTOP CONNECTION"

Home computer : Windows 8.1 pro
Work Computer : Windows 7 Professional.

Home computer connected to wifi ( Verizon fios ). I have doubt on port forwarding step, seems like missing some thing there....

Is it possible to connect through remote desktop connection client ??

Please help me out !!!

Have you tried Chrome Remote Desktop.
If you use chrome at home and work it should work.

Check out these links:[^][^]

Very good idea, but your post needed more adequate links. I voted 4 and added two links in Solution 3.

Your home coputer is a client, your work computer is a server, if your home pc has internet access, this won't be an issue.
But: supposing RDP is enabled on server side, supposing your user is in remote users group, you most likelly won't get trough the company gates (firewall). You should consult with your company's IT group about this topic. No serious company will allow inbound RDP connections like this. In general such connections are available only above VPN or DirectAccess (or something similar).
But you can try TeamViewer. It is working differently. If it is not explicitelly forbidden or blocked, it will most likelly work.
