I saw another person work on someone else's computer remotely. How did they do that?

If the other computer was running Windows 2000 or Windows XP they were connecting to it most likely via something called Terminal Services. This is a built in service that allows people to connect remotely to your machine.

There are other products, such as pcanywhere and vnc that allow the same time of features.

If you have Windows XP Home, there is no built in function to allow yourself to connect to your computer remotely and take it over. You can invite other people in to your computer to help you with problems, but you need to be there to let them take control of your computer.

Windows XP Professional, does support remote access to it from any location using its Remote Desktop service. This will allow you to connect to your and take it over, seeing your screen as if you were right in front of it. If you have a firewall you will need to allow TCP Port 3389 to be reachable via the Internet.

If you dont have Windows XP Pro, you can use programs like PCAnywhere, UltraVNC, and PCDUO. All of them cost money except for UltraVNC.

I use a program called F-secure. It uses SSH and you can do anything via port 22. i.e. Term serv, ftp... just about everything i could throw at it. Most people use it when they have a computer at home and they are away all the time(like me) put f-secure server on the recieving end and the client on the other. also if you use the client to connect to a recieving linux box, you don't need the server, you just forward the connection off that linux box... sort of a relay

VNC Virtual Network Computer is the way to go for remote desktop control
I use TightVNC on the Windows® workstations here. You can do everything just as if you are sitting there at the actual computer.

i use remote admin. it allows you to connect to as many pc's remotly at one time that your network can handle. it allows connections for you to have "full control" "view only" "telnet" "file transfer" and "logoff shutdown or reboot"
it is a pay program but they have a trialware version to play with. its one for the pro's.
