I wish to use MS Remote desktop to control my home desktop. My home desktop is setup with a four computer LAN. The LAN is connected to the internet through a router. I wish to use my laptop, on the road, to connect to my desktop at home. I have been told i will have to use some Dynamic DNS software and servers. Is this so? If so any suggestions?

Perhaps you should read http://www.microsoft.com/windowsXp/using/m...emoteintro.mspx

FWIW: Remote Desktop (using XP Pro) is just one method of making such contact, there are others.

Hello bruceryder,

As Louis said, there are other ways.
