You have to be connected to the same network, i have a direct connection to my father's computer downstairs, so i can steal files, or print my stuff on his computer.

You mean the Remote Assistance feature of Windows XP?

Thats mainly used for servers.. but..

Your computer (the one you want to remotely control) has to have Windows XP Professional... al all you do is enter the IP address in the top box... and click connect. You'll have to have the Username/Password to do this. If the computer doesnt have a password protected account, you have to make one. Also.. if you're connecting to windows xp pro, the account you are logging into to control has to be logged off... it cant be logged in.. if it is, the computer you're trying to remote into will ask if it can be connected to.


Hope this helped..

You can do it across the Internet by using VNC as long as the computer at the other end has the VNC service running. I think you also need admin rights on both machines, but I couldn't be sure.
