Re: Off Topic - repetitive TeamViewer Screw-ups

Steve,
 
    I tried MS Windows own REMOTE DESKTOP many years ago. It requires owning the PRO version of Windows,
But is far worse, it switches off the screen on one side, and you have to then use the other PC. I need to have instant access at either end of the remote linked PC. rather than racing back & forth. TeamViewer and ANYDESK, etc. are better, since you can operate at either PC, and see both  screens, displayed and both keyboards and mice active,  all the time.
 
    I might switch to MS Remote Desktop if MS would fix this problem, though it is still a basic program, since MS doesn’t want to compete with potential developers, whom it always considers as THEIR “primary customers” – not the lowly Windows users themselves.

Is there any other (free license), remote desktop program, that provides a local WiFi connection to the telescope, as TV does?
If you're on Windows 10 Pro then remote desktop works well.  I recently switched to it from TV for my local obs.
