(On XP) Start, Programs, Accessories, Communications, Remote Desktop Connection...enter the IP of the computer you want to connect to.

You cant have two computers with the same IP address if thats what you mean...you can type in the computer name rather than the IP address with the same result though

Remote desktop makes me very nervous!
BTW, (I'm sure most of you know this, but for those who don't) remote desktop is included as an exception by default in the Windows firewall (at least in XP Pro SP2 and I'm sure other versions too).

I actually think that it was a good decision to include Remote Desktop as part of XP. Remote access is an important part of administration and support.

I think MS left the exception in assuming that the XP pro machined would be on a corporate network, behind a firewall.

I could be wrong. I am attempting to construct MS logic.
