Default Remote desktop help

Hi, I'm new...

Here is my problem...

I have two windows xp professional computers and I have them set up on a network and I have one of them remote controlling the other.

I want to be able to stay logged in on the computer I'm controlling so the screen with be visible from both the computer I'm controlling and the computer I'm using to control it. I know you can do this in Ubuntu 9.04 but I want to do it in XP Pro. Is it possible?

Try using VNC instead of remote desktop.

But I'm trying, Ringo. I'm trying real hard... to be the Shepherd.

Agreed, VNC is what you will want to use. Or you can use Remote Desktop as that should allow you to minimize the 'remote' computer's screen.

when you start the terminal service client that you're using to connect to the desktop of the other PC press option, then use the display tab,

this should allow you to reduce the screen size so that the desktop of the other server appears as a window on your current desktop rather than being full screen.
