Home Network - Remote Access

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys...Here's my scenario and what I want to try and do:

I've got my laptop and PC together on my home network. My laptop has Vista, my PC has XP.

I understand the concept of Remote Access on a network, but I've never actually done it. So, I was wondering how. I basically want to be able to manipulate my PC from Laptop and vice versa. Whatcha think?

Fairly simple, go to remote desktop connection and when it pops up asking which computer you want to connect to enter the name of the one you want to connect to, enter password if required and voila! Hope this helps.

Ya that's about it, how did it go?

Just in case at the first prompt type in the remote computers ip address and then it will ask for a log in name and password. I always just log in as administrator and type in my password and as long as no one is logged into the remote computer you are in.
