Remote Desktop Connection IP address

Address / July 26, 2018

I have tried to find older topics and tutorials on this without success. This is new to me so hopefully there's something very simple to address the issue.

I have 3 computers. 1 x Win 8 Pro and 2 x Win 8 Standard.

I know only the Win 8 Pro machine can be a Remote Desktop host.
In System Properties I have checked the box to "allow Remote Assistance to this computer" (I don't know detail, but I am aware this is something different to Remote Desktop).

Also in System Properties, I have selected to "Allow remote connections to this computer". I have also tried to check the sub-section of that "Allow connections only from computers running Remote Desktop with Network Level Authentication (recommended)".

All computers are set up at home, connected to a regular home router.

When I try to connect to the host machine I get an error (sorry I don't have details of that right now, but its some generic "no connection" error).

To get the host machine IP address I just used whatever google suggested..something like myipaddress.com.
