Note that installing VPN on your home computer is necessary before you can connect to remote desktop.
Your Windows computer on campus can be accessed remotely using Remote Desktop Connection on your home computer. To use this, your office computer must be on (not in sleep mode), and your home computer must be logged in to VPN. You will also need to know the name of your office computer.
After logging in, your office computer's desktop should appear on your screen, and you can operate it as if you were sitting in front of it. If you print a document from your office computer, it will print to your home printer (if available). You can also access the hard drive of your home computer within the remote desktop view of your office computer to transfer files between the two computers. You must first enable this option before logging in to remote desktop (click the Options button, then the Local Resources tab, then the More button and check the box next to Drives).
