I am a huge RDP user but I never figured out how to get audio and video to stream well, or use it to control my parents or brothers HTPC at their place or my own desktop from work.
I also never figured out how to use ipad or iphone to control my PC or server either (or other machines)
Can you clarify that for me?
Locally SLASHTOP is FREE. But over internet it requires a small but reasonable fee.
And my last question for you you guys is that I found it hard to set up RDP on a machine that did not have a password. I don't want a password on my machines, especially my HTPC which I don't want to enter from a remote only controlled device. Is there a way to get the normal microsoft RDP to work on say my HTPC without a password ?
It works great on my server because WHS2011 requires a password and I have one. But that threw me for a loop last I tried so I ended up just using splashtop which works well. I am sure there might exists a solution. know it ?
