Note: The "Remote Desktop" service described here is not equivalent to the remote desktop connection to your workstation PC that you need to work in your home office. You can find more information on this subject on our home office information page. If you cannot establish a remote desktop connection to your workstation PC, however, the service described on this page is an option to at least get access to central software programs.
