If the computers are using the Professional or Enterprise version of Windows, you can use Remote Desktop Connection - see Connect to another computer using Remote Desktop Connection.

I set up my previous desktop PC as a file server and stuck it in the guest bedroom, with a WiFi connection and no monitor. I just needed a way to run updates from my main desktop. I was having a lot of trouble getting Remote Desktop to display properly. My son-in-law recommended TightVNC as a replacement, and it's working flawlessly.

This is outside my expertise, but I suspect it may not be possible. Wait for other replies though.

But i know the userid and password of remote PC. Is a second my pc :grin:

... we will be transferred for a short time in Bologna for work, and I have only a Bologna intranet connection.
So I would like to work with the second PC directly to Rome

As I wrote, this is not my field - I hope that someone else can tell you how to do this. You could ask your IT department of course.

PS Bologna is a beautiful city!

TeamViewer free version will do it.
Also set permissions on the server to "share" the drives, folders, etc
