This article will show you how to create Remote Desktop Connection to Windows 7 or later from iPad, iPhone, Mac and Windows Phone devices.

Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) has been an active part of Windows editions. It basically helps us to create a remote control device and use it for manipulating the system which is placed at some remote location. Many times it happens that users are unable to access remote system from the Remote Desktop Software. This may happens if the settings of control device and remote system aren’t synchronizing. Sometimes, if the network settings are not working, you can’t connect devices remotely.
