So for the last few days I've been wrangling with usernames/passwords and trying to use different tools to connect, all to no avail.
I know there are many ways to connect, VPN, or command line, or SQL Server Management Studio.
What I've been doing normally is to use "Remote Desktop Connection" with Windows, but is that the best way?
What is the easiest way to do this?
My system specs are: Windows 7 Home premium
64-bit Op. System
I have "Shrew soft VPN access mgr"
I then use "Remote Desktop Connection" (on windows)
Then I land on a remote machine with these specs(when I use another user's credentials that work):
"Windows server 2008 r2 std"
.. etc ( do you want the Computer name, domain, and workgroup settings ?)
