For example, AnyDesk boasts remote connections with high frame rates and low latency, and Microsoft Remote Desktop can be considered as a compelling alternative too. Of course this article is focused on remote connections to Windows PC from an iOS or iPadOS device, but you can also perform similar tasks with a Mac using some different tools.
Download and install the Remote Desktop app onto your iPhone or iPad from the App Store and onto an Android device from Google Play. The app works similarly on iOS and Android with the same basic. This version of the remote desktop for iPad and iPhone is designed to be simple and easy to handle so that even inexperienced users can use it – and you as the IT manager encounter less hassle. The user has to initiate the remote support session on their iPad or iPhone themselves and actively consent to the connection.
In all likelihood, there’s no network connection and no path available between the sites, or there’s a firewall or three that’s blocking that access. There’ll need to be either public static IP addresses for the target systems at the office and a path opened through the firewall, or private IP addresses and port-forwarding configured through the firewall, or a VPN configured and established between the remote client and the target network. Or IPv6 and a path through the firewall. There’ll probably want to be a public DNS name established for the target host, too.
Check with the local networking folks for assistance.
That’s a guess.
Alternatively... Please check the Microsoft support forums for assistance with that app, or contact Microsoft support.

Microsoft Remote Desktop is a service that allows users to access and use their computer through another device, such as an iPhone or iPad. The iOS app, which had been abandoned for over a year, was updated this week with several new features, including support for recently released Apple devices and also Dark Mode compatibility on iOS 13.
After pairing the computer with another device using the IP address, users can access the Windows Desktop and the entire file system with support for multi-touch controls and gestures, audio, microphone, and even cameras. It is compatible with any PC running Windows Professional, Enterprise or Server.
