Remote Desktop Connection, credentials did not work, non domain
I need help getting my Remote Desktop Connection to work. I have followed every tutorial on this site to no avail. My pc is WORKGROUP, there is no domain. I feel like I have tried everything and still it says my credentials did not work.
I am trying to set this pc up for WOL. I have activated Remote Device Access through the Control Panel and in the BIOS. I have followed through with everything to achieve waking my pc through WOL Magic Packet sending. I just can't get the Remote Desktop Connection to work to see if I can actually access the pc and get into my files.
I am setting it up to be an offsite storage unit for my place of business.
I am very computer literate, but feel stupid because I can't get this to work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is IMO, is one of MS worst attempts to remote access another PC. Some can follow the suggested guides and have no problem making a connection while others like you and myself have all kinds of problems. For me, I used team-viewer. It's very simple and GUI friendly. I'm not one to promote products or software but this one wins hands down.
TeamViewer - Free Remote Access and Remote Desktop Sharing over the Internet
