I am about to bleep scream, so if I sound angry in this post, it's because I am.


My boss has called me 4 times because he accidentally backed up his quickbooks to early 2013 and is freaking the bleep out, so I'm trying to get in to my work computer and fix it with my back up from friday, but I can only remote into the server directly, which I can't access because of some stupid bleep permissions thing that nobody ever knew we set up, and I can't access my computer through our web workplace because some brilliant bleep microsoft dick decided that sbspackage shouldn't bleep work unless it was built specifically for x64 architecture.


I'm trying to figure out how to connect to a specific computer through any means necessary if I have the computer name and the workgroup/server IP, but everywhere I've gone has been completely, entirely 100% un-bleep-helpful, some even condescending and I'm about to throw something or hit my dog or something, I'm just so bleep frustrated at this bleep.

Sorry to hear of your frustrations.


Unfortunately there isn't any usable information in your post for us to make a recommendation.  Clearly until you get remote access working properly you will have to go into the office to address the backup/restore issue.


Once you resolve your server permission issues and can RDP to it life should be a lot easier for you.
