www.GoToMyPC.com is a service with 30 days free. You basically just log in and access your computer over the internet. Your PC desktop will show up and you can just access your computer like you were at home. I think there might be some totally free sites that let you do this also, but don't know how reliable they are. Call it self hacking if you will.

what exactly do you want to know? You need to know the IP address of the computer you are accessing. Make sure that computer is password protected and under System->Remote make sure that it is enabled for that computer.

Works great for Windows XP Pro and Vista Business and above

remote desktop can be found under start->accessories-> communications, if you have the new version of RDC it is just under accessories.

To turn on RDC do as saxahonker said and enable it under System->Remote

From your internal network you just need to know the ip and log-in information for the machine you want to connect to.

If you want to connect from out side your local network you have to know the ip that you get from your provider and if you have a router you will need to set up port forwarding..
Depends on how you have your network set up on how to find it. If you have a modem and a router sometimes the modem is set to pass through and the external ip of the router is what you need.

Could you give us some information on how you have your network set up. Ip's, modem, and router types would be helpfull.

For security reasons i wouldn't use your real external ip. for example if your external ip is 165.110.248.2 put 165.x.x.2.

ok, that is most likely your internal ip. you need to log into your router and under some kind of status menu look for your wan ip address.

I wouldn't use RDC, I'd use VNC. As a matter of fact, that's exactly what I use (UltraVNC):
http://www.uvnc.com/
It seems faster and better, and I am quite pleased. It doesn't require much more setup than RDC, either. I use this with my servers instead of a KVM switch and I use VNC to connect to my clients' computers and to help them with fixing issues. Also, with RDC it locks the serving computer, whereas VNC doesn't.

this is very true. vnc is a very nice tool. you will still have to go through all the steps but it will be a better system overall.

Thanks for reminding me about it money!
