@SkyWhisperer - Perhaps it’s VPN network security that’s bogging the system down. At any rate, let me issue a word of warning to anyone who wants to work from home using network software.
Use your company’s VPN software (get approval to use it first, of course). Don’t try to bypass it. What I mean is that there is some remote login software you can get on the Internet, which runs in a web browser.
You can install it on your work computer and your home computer and login that way. It just uses the Internet connection and a third party site provider.
Don’t use that software! I tried that, it works great, but I got in trouble with IT. That software is not as secure as the VPN. So the bottom line is, if you want to remote in, use the VPN, with its bugs and all, or don’t use anything else.
