Remotely Accessing my Desktop

    Ive recently been using remote access software to access my home PC from the university campus as it is much easier than carrying my laptop around everywhere.

    When it comes to downloading from the internet, which internet connection will be used? My home PC, or the university network? Or does it depend on the software i am using?

    Thanks in advance,
    Dan.

    Remote access is just emulating keyboard and mouse inputs to your home computer while displaying your home computer's screen on your university system. Any internet activity will take place on your home system's hardware, assume the remote access software isn't also intercepting ethernet hardware function.
