As I need access to my office, I used Microsoft Remote Desktop with High Sierra without any problems with my Mac Mini with High Sierra. I recently bought a MacBook Pro which use Mojave. I tried it with Microsoft Remote Desktop and It don't work. As I also have another Mini with Mojave, I also tried it and it is doing the same thing. Microsoft Remote Desktop seems to work with High Sierra but not with 2 Macs with Mojave. Is there some incompatibility between this software and Mojave ? I always have this message when I try to connect:
We couldn't connect to the remote PC because the PC can't be found. Please provide the fully-qualified name or the IP address of the remote PC, and then try again.
Error code: 0x104

I'm not familiar with RDP Wrapper, so this may not help. However, when you setup your RDP session on the Mac, are you using your static IP address for your Gateway or for the Computer? I've had users with Macs try to place the RDP server address into the Gateway field and that won't work unless you are running an RDP Gateway.

I hadn't realized, until now, that Windows 10 Home doesn't allow for setting up RDP access. Is there a reason you may not use something like Google's Remote desktop, or Teamviewer, LogMeIn, etc? They would be safer than leaving port 3389 open for RDP on your home system.
