I want to set up remote access between two PCs over the internet. Both the PC I want to access and the Laptop I want to accessit with are running Windows XP Home. Is this possible, or does the PC I want to access need to be running Windows XP Pro?

Thanks In advance.

Thanks Acklan

Followed the link, have got software installed, but the text says

"When run, this software allows older Windows platforms to remotely connect to a computer running Windows XP Professional with Remote Desktop enabled"

Which is the bit that worries me, as both PC & Laptop are running XP home.

Any Ideas

According to Microsoft this software is already on the XP Home and Professional CD.

This software package will install the client portion of Remote Desktop on any of the following operating systems: Windows 95, Windows 98 and 98 Second Edition, Windows Me, Windows NT 4.0, or Windows 2000. (This is the same version of the client software as in Windows XP Service Pack 1.) When run, this software allows older Windows platforms to remotely connect to a computer running Windows XP Professional with Remote Desktop enabled.

This package provides flexible deployment options of the full Terminal Services Client, including auto-repair through Windows Installer technology and application publishing via IntelliMirror™ management technologies or Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS).

Note The Remote Desktop Connection software is pre-installed with Windows XP. To run it, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click Communications, and then click Remote Desktop Connection. This software package can also be found on the Windows XP Professional and Windows XP Home Edition product CDs and can be installed on any supported Windows platform. To install from the CD, insert the disc into the target machine's CD-ROM drive, select Perform Additional Tasks, and then click Install Remote Desktop Connection.
