We moved to a new location for our office.  The new office has a comcast connection for high speed.  The computers they have there are connected from home via Windows Remote Desktop.  I asked the tech guy how he connects us up for remote use and he said that he needs to make an adjustment to my registry on my laptop after he initially sets up one computer/server in the office.  

Previously we used VPN connection through a Cisco router and it worked great.  Now this setup is different.  What is the difference and how is he setting us up?  Can someone explain what he is doing exactly to setup remote desktop.  Can i still share files from home this way?

To connect to RDP either by LAn or thru VPN or even thru internet, the allow remote desktop connection must be enabled.
This can be done either by righ-click my computer/properties/remote or by setting a key in the registry.
Other settings might include changing the port from 3389 to another port for security reasons.

If I connect via VPN, how do I use RDP after that?

Same way as when you are on the lan.

Except I would use the PPP address instead of the computer name correct?

If you connect to your local DNS when you are on VPN then type the computer name, otherwise you have to type the IP address.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
