Remote Desktop Clarification

Postby Igulike » August 19th, 2015, 1:37 pm

Hi,

Having recently got my Linx 10 I understand that RDP isn't supported in Windows 8.1 with Bing, I've used the 'wrapper' to activate but wonder if someone can confirm a couple of things for me.

1 Does this only give me RDP 'in' from another PC? I can't seem to RDP 'out' from the Linx

2 If I upgrade to Windows 10 (Home I believe) does that have RDP natively?

I've seen a couple of topics on activating RDP but no mention of this specifically, apologies if I'm duplicating,

Thanks

Mike

I'm running win 10 pro and can confirm rdp is included. Assuming win 8.1 with bing will get the home upgrade. I can check this when I get home as I've several pcs running home version but pro defo has it

Thanks for the reply. I have 10 pro on my work machine but no access to 'home' to check so that'd be a great help if you could.

I can confirm that Windows 8.1 with Bing gets the Windows 10 Home edition
