Windows 7: WD MyCloud and Remote Desktop

09 Apr 2014   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
WD MyCloud and Remote Desktop

Hope this isn't a stupid question.

Running Windows 7 64 at work and connect to home and workgroup computers networked on wireless Cisco router that also has a WD MyCloud installed. Couldn't get RD at all from Work-Home (home to work was fine) and pulled my hair out until I ran across threads describing WD MyCloud connectivity issues. Couldn't connect remotely to the MyCloud at home on above router. Known issue with WD
I re-booted the MyCloud at home and both remote connectively with MyCloud came back as well as RDP from Work-Home.
My question is what did the issues with MyCloud have to do with RDP????

What version of Win 7 are yu running at home? If it's Win 7 Home Premium then it can work as a client but not a host which would explain why home->work is Ok but work->home doesn't.

Rather then use RDC, try Teamviewer.

Windows 7 64 pro, and an 2 older XP's - have always been able to connect to any in the past from Work (Windows 7 64 pro) to any of these. Home from any computer to the Windows 7 64 at work is fine.
Will look into Teamviewer - thanks for the tip.
