We got a Mac for my wife yesterday, and I am considering getting one for myself. This is the first Apple computer in the house, and I am trying to learn a bunch of stuff. One need I have is to be able to remotely connect to my work computer, which is a windows PC running windows XP.
Currently at home I am using a computer running windows vista. I connect to my work network using Cisco VPN client, and remote desktop to connect and remotely control the computer.
Using the Mac’s built in VPN protocal, I am able to connect to the network, but when I use remote desktop (included in MS Office for Mac 2011), I get an error: “The Mac cannot connect because the Windows-based computer cannot be found. Verify that you typed the correct computer name or IP address, and try connecting again.”
I know this isn’t really an Apple forum, so if anyone can point me to a good one for beginners, please do.
