Firstly, I should point out, I'm not a trained IT professional or anything, but to save on cost my employer asked me to take over the IT here as I do have some history working with computers.
Now I've been given a slight challenge in that my boss and one of my co-workers now want to be able to work from home. I know that I can set up a remote desktop connection and have them access the work network that way, however they actually bring their computers home with them (They both use laptops) and want to be able to simply connect to the network on the computers they take to and from work with them. I'm not sure if a remote connection would work since the computer that they would otherwise be remoting into will actually be the same one that they will be using. Are there any specific steps that I can take to get them into the system without having to purchase additional software to allow them to do so?
The problem with remote access is that they would have to, in theory, leave the computer that they will be using logged on and with access to the network. However, they will be taking the computer with them and want to continue to have access on it once they are no longer physically connected to the network.
