Hello Guys,..

The remote PC cannot be found.

If you see this type of error, try to connect to your server 2-3 times, if then also not works then talk to the system admin of the remote PC to make sure you have the right PC name, and then check to see if you entered the name correctly.

This fault is mainly because of your own system network. Be sure that your router is turned on (home networks only), the Ethernet cable is plugged into your network adapter (wired networks only), your PC’s wireless switch is turned on (laptops on wireless networks only),your network adapter is working.
