    Just what I wanted for managing my servers and desktops on my Lumia 1520. Great performance.

    Well, I have everything set up.. Only thing is it keeps saying my credentials are wrong. You just type the same username and pw you use to sign into the account on your computer right? I know before you type it says domain/user or user@domain. I'm not sure what to type for domain. If someone could reply with a review that'd be great I'll be checking every so often thank you.
