    I run a UMBP @ home and also have a work laptop connected to my LAN. I want to remote into my work laptop from my UMBP, but I am having trouble doing so.

    My work laptop has joint to the company domain and has Group Policy applied. However I made sure all the remote desktop firewall rules are open and I still can't remote into it. Work laptop is running Win7.

    My dad's pc is also a Win7 and I can remote into just fine. Can anyone point out to me what settings I may need to set to get this working?

    I prefer to use TeamViewer for remote access, which works with Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Ubuntu, iPhone, iPad, etc. It's extremely simple to set up.

    There's gotompc (which costs money) and logmein which is free.
