How can one connect to another computer through a network without "My PC" software. If one has the IP address is it accessible through - run - cmd?

Hi,

What version of windows are you using?

If the machine you are connecting to is XP Pro you can use the built in RDC within windows

If its XP Home have a read of this and this.

Hi Emu ~ Thanks for your reply. All of the computers on our network/server are running Pro XP. I'm not familiar with RDC within Windows.

Hi,

Go to Start,
All Programs,
Accessories,
Communication
Remote Desktop Connection


To create a new connection

1. Open Remote Desktop Connection.

2. In 'Computer' field, type a computer name or IP address. The computer can be a terminal server or it can be a computer running Windows Professional or Server that has Remote Desktop enabled and for which you have Remote Desktop permissions.

3. Click Connect.

(The Log On to Windows dialog box appears)

5. In the Log On to Windows dialog box, type your user name, password, and domain (if required), and then click OK.


Dont forget to allow remote access on the computers you are wanting to connect to and configuring any firewalls to allow the connection.

If you have any issues the help button is really useful or post back here and i'll help when i can.
