1A First Alternative

Connecting with Remote Desktop - macOS

This manual is meant for 1A-server users. It explains how to create a Remote Desktop connection. This allows you to work on another computer from your current one. The other computer must of course support this. Windows does this by default.

To be able to connect to a computer with Remote Desktop, your username has to be added to the list of Remote Desktop Users on that computer. The computer's administrator can do this.

If you are not connected to the company network, you need to set up a VPN connection first.
