Windows 7: WD MyCloud and Remote Desktop

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.

Using Remote Desktop instead of Remote Assistance for remote helpdesk?
Hi I know there are other products out there, like vnc, ultravnc, teamviewer etc etc, but really nothing beats the sheer speed of remote desktop, it's like sitting in front of the actual computer. I also know about Remote Assistance built into Windows 7. I would like to use remote desktop...
