Yes Remote Connections. If it is XP to XP/2000 can use Remote Web Connection. Only use Internet Explorer for that option not firefox(ActiveX issue). Remote connections do require some configuration and setup. If it is Vista to Vista , then Vista Ultimate only works as basic and premium do not allow a server , without tricky setup. The Web Guide is here

Web Remote Connection .

Other option is to use 3rd Party software. Popular choice is Real VNC however this can take some good knowledge of networks for proper setup. There are some good setup guide out there search google.

Hi Silver, welcome to BC.

Take a look at installing TEAMVIEWER on both machines. This is a great remote connector and the best, fastest, and simplest one I have come across.
