okay so i have to be away from home and the computer in my house is a newly bought vista and the laptop i own is media edition xp.

when someone from the house is in need of help when i am gone, i would like to use the remote desktop sharing thing so i can control the vista desktop.

im aware though that vista does not have netmeeting anymore and have somehitng called windows meetingspace only complatible with vista users.

i downloaded netmeeting and set the compatibility to Windows NT 4.0 (Service pack5)

a few years back i remember that another computer user was able to get into my pc and control my pc and desktop

so my problem is this, i would like to do the same thing.

i was able to connect through netmeeting with another xp laptop i have here to this vista comp.

the desktop in the laptop appears in the screen of the vista. so i am able to see what the laptop is doing. but not vice

versa b/c (i think) the 'remote desktop sharing option' does not work in this vista computer.

i can not see or contorl the desktop of the vista in the xp laptop which is what i need.

is there a solution to this problem or another way besides netmeeting for me to getting access to the vista computer

from a XP laptop?

it's been 2 years sine vista has been out and i do not see any progression to this stinkin vista.

Netmeeting has been well replaced by remote support, which is much more powerful and flexible. There are two types of remote support solutions: hosted (e.g., gosupportnow, logmeinrescue etc. ) and on-premise (RHUB appliances).
