Re: help with remote desktop
You don't need a domain. It's a home network, right? Make sure each computer has a different name, and are apart of the same workgroup. But even that don't matter if your using RDP. You also may need to setup your router to port forward 3389 to the IP address you're trying to go to. Do you want to connect to the computer, like to see the screen on your screen (like RDP or VNC) or do you want to just be able to access the computer?
Also make sure you allow users to connect via RDP on the computer you are trying to connect to. Also, both need to be XP Pro.
