Notice : This obviously suggests RDC (RDP) while other means are possible. Remote Desktop Connection is advised because it does what it needs to do in all aspects. Other means may too, but it wasn't investigated and the smallest detail may let not work something conveniently.
Watch out : The above being said, this RDC means is about another desktop PC (or Laptop) under normal Windows being our Remote to the Audio PC. This is NOT the RDP means for touch devices as layed out here : Selecting Remote Control Software. Still the topic can be useful, for example for obtaining the IP address.

Notice : In order for RDC to work, the main (Audio) PC needs to have a Password (which you use to Login always). But :
WARNING : Once you set a Password you will not be able to get rid of it afterwards. So, if you have reasons to not want a Password, then RDC can not be used.

Let's create the RDC Icon on the desktop of the laptop or other desktop PC :
Open a Command Prompt (Start button - Run - cmd)
In the now opened Dos Box enter mstsc [Enter]
In the Computer field enter the IP address which you can obtain by means of :

- run the command prompt (cmd) in Audio PC;
- type :
ipconfig [enter]

Look for the IP address you will see for the "Ethernet Adapter Connection x" at the IPv4 address (mentioned x can be any number and if you have more than one Ethernet Interface active you will see more of these entries and hopefully know which is which (and otherwise try both)). In "my" case this is 169.254.108.156.

The RDP (RDC) screen is started from the command prompt by means of typing
mstsc [enter]

When you click the Options field (left bottom) the form expands and you can enter your credentials and more detailed stuff like the resolution to be used and more.
Watch out : The resolution stuff won't work out as you want antyway and for that look here : Scaling the Remote Desktop.



The below two screens are of some importance :





The last picture merely shows that we don't need anything from our remotely controlled PC (it would cause overhead only), and in my case I left the SmartCard option ticked, not exactly knowing what may change if I untick it (this is security stuff). You may try to untick it when you have some spare time.

Save this like AudioPC.rdp or something (can be done when the form is expanded - Save As) and maintain the .rdp extension. Now it will show up on the desktop, ready to be double clicked and tried.
