[Athen] screen-sharing between PC and Mac?

My first inclination is to do screen sharing via a web conferencing service like Zoom <http://www.zoom.us/>. Make sure “Zoom Client for Meetings <https://zoom.us/download#client_4meeting>” is installed on both PC and Mac, have the PC share its screen during the “meeting”, and if desired, grant the Mac “remote control” of the PC’s mouse and keyboard.

For a single PC sharing to a single Mac, this setup would be free for an unlimited meeting duration.

I’ve already tried downloading Microsoft Remote Desktop to both of my devices to test it out, but after checking all settings quite a few times, it’s still not working. Thanks in advance for the help!
