Remote Desktop on Ipad


I'm newbe, I've just installed Expedition. I'm also French, please be indulgent with my English

To have a copy of Expedition and PC screen in the cockpit, I plan to use RDP on an iPad, thru the wifi of the computer, who runs Win 10 Pro. Everything is updated on the last release.
Installing RDP on iPad and computer is done and works over my home LAN at home. No problems
In the boat, I replace the home LAN with an WANET (or "ad-hoc") network connection, to have a direct link between the computer and the iPad.
The WANET networks works, and RDP works over it. I test it with my android smartphone and everything works

The problem I have : the iPad see that there is not internet access via the WANET network (that's logical) and so refuse to connect on this wifi network. And by consequence RDP doesn't works.

Thank you for help

Hi Philippe

Did you find a solution to this issue? I'm currently having the same issue with remote desktop not working on the boat but only at home.

Re: Remote Desktop on Ipad

I have the solution. Thanks to the french forum hisse et ho (https://www.hisse-et-oh.com/)
The solution is to activate the mobile hot spot on the PC, and connect on it.

Go in the Settings
Network and internet
Mobile hotspot 
on this page, you will find Network name and password (you can change it)
and activate mobile hot spot

And on the iPad, connect on this Network. Remote Desktop will work.
