How to connect remote desktop using ip address?

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use Remote Desktop Connection in Windows 10 with an IP address.

Important: Your target computer (the one you want to control) must have Remote Desktop enabled and must be reachable over the network.

Part 1: Prepare the Computer You Want to Control (Target)

  1. Enable Remote Desktop:
    • Go to Start > Settings > System > Remote Desktop.
    • Toggle the “Enable Remote Desktop” switch to “On.”
    • Note down the computer’s name, which you’ll need later.
  2. Find the IP Address:
    • Open the Command Prompt (Press the Windows key + R, type “cmd”, press Enter)
    • Type “ipconfig” and press Enter.
    • Look for the line “IPv4 Address”. That’s your target computer’s local IP address.
  3. Allow Remote Desktop through Firewall (if necessary):
    • Go to Start > Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security > Firewall & network protection.
    • Click “Allow an app through firewall”.
    • Find “Remote Desktop” in the list and ensure both “Private” and “Public” checkboxes are ticked.

Part 2: Connect from Your Other Computer (Client)

  1. Open Remote Desktop Connection:
    • On your client computer, press the Windows Key + R.
    • Type “mstsc” and press Enter
  2. Enter IP Address:
    • In the “Computer” field, type the IP address of your target computer.
    • Click “Connect”
  3. Enter Credentials:
    • Provide the username and password for an account on the target computer that has permission to connect via Remote Desktop.
    • Hit “OK”

Now You’re Connected!

If successful, you will now see the remote desktop of your target computer in a window on your client computer.

Things to Keep in Mind:

  • External Connections: If you’re connecting from outside your local network, additional setup is needed (port forwarding or a VPN).
  • Dynamic IP Addresses: If your target computer’s IP address changes frequently, consider using a Dynamic DNS service for easier access.
