I am having some trouble with connecting to my laptop from my PC on remote desktop My PC has XP Pro and my laptop had XP home. Do i need to install something on xp home for it to work or something?
You can also try going to microsoft.com/downloads and installing the remote destop connection software. I have tried doing this on MCE but it didnt work because the remote desktop was already installed, just not accessible. In MCE I was able to get the remote desktop connection working through the windows media center program options.
team viewer or logmein
with the pro versions you can even stream games i use to play games in my eepc 701
remotly using a sever has game host and the eeepc has remote console
with a good internet conection and good hardware you will not have lag problems at all
plus i forgot to mention logmein gives you the possibility to use wake on lan
which means you can switch on a computer remotly
just use a third party software named teamviewer that is really reliable and secure(ask whoever you want and he is going to prove me right)
