I recently set up a headless Windows 10 machine to run some shared software that we only have one license for. I want to be able to use remote desktop to connect to it and take control, but I am unable to do so using its APIPA address (169.254.86.113).
I have verified when setting up the machine that the remote desktop services are running on startup and I can connect to it using my home network before bringing the machine to its final location. Where the machine is to be used, there is no other connection option than direct connection via ethernet, and there is not enough desk space to have a monitor and keyboard.
As a side note, I have been able to connect to the machine using its VNC server but I prefer the functionality and speed of RDP.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
