The Problem

I leant out my USB keyboard for my server, the tenants downstairs requested I reset the router. How do I remote desktop to my server now that it has new ip address and I don't have a keyboard to run command prompt and ipconfig?

The Solution

Instead of entering the ip addess in to remote desktop use the name of the the server (computer).
