Enable remote desktop connections seems to be missing you can see what I am talking about by looking at this screenshot. Does anyone know if I need to do something before I can enable remote desktop? Any help would be appreciated.

Remote desktop is only available in Business and Ultimate.

No, you need XP Pro.

The various flavors of VNC (most are free) will allow this. Also, LogMeIn.com will also let you do this.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I'm having a similar problem...but I am running Windows Vista Ultimate. The remote tab was originally there but a couple of months ago the RDP stopped connecting. 2 days ago we finally realize that the remote tab is missing. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

Does the control panel appear normally or is that missing too?
