The points need to be mentioned:

▶ If the 2 devices are not on the same LAN, you need to perform port forwarding when you use RD Client.

▶ If the PC is running the Windows Home version, then you’ll fail to connect to it by using RD Client as you can’t enable Remote Desktop on the host computer.

Conclusion

This post mainly provides 2 ways for you to mirror Windows 10, 11 to iPad or iPhone for remote access. When 2 PCs are on the same network, you can use RD Client to help you achieve it. But if you are looking for a more convenient, less limited, and more high-responsive remote access tool or you come across some errors, AnyViewer must be the best solution for you.
