EVO staffs support via remote desktop
Under some circumstance, customers have issues that cannot be resolved. EVO support staffs are able to establish a remote desktop session to assist customers. Generally, there are 3 commonly used remote desktop options for customers to choose from:
Windows Desktop – A built-in Windows application: (The following steps use Windows 10 as an example.)
- Click START button.

- Click on Remote settings.
- In Remot Desktop section, click on Allow remote connection to this computer radial.
- Click on Select User… to add an account for others to log in remotely.
- Then, give the assigned user account, password and <public IP>:port or <computer host name>:port to whoever that will be logging in. The port number is 3389 by default unless otherwise specified. Note: if NAT exists, then make sure port forwarding or virtual server should map Internet Port Range to Local Port (3389) of computer host’s internal IP. The following screenshot is an example: (where Port Range is often assigned to other port number other than 3389 for security reason)
