Can someone give me a complete easy how to...would be real nice!!!
realvnc - simple to setup and use
Can't you use the windows program "connect to external desktop" (roughly translated from Dutch)? I use this to connect to my XP machine from my Vista laptop and it works great. There is also a programm to allow loggin in on the XP machine while an other user can keep on working on the XP machine.
Very quickly and most likely full of holes:
- Right click on my computer, properties, remote tab
- Allow users to connect remotely to this computer
that should be enough for a lan, but with a wan you will need to forward the relevent ports to that machine (TCP port 3389)
I would recommend using dyndns.org etc. to make it easier to find your ip
Use www.crossloop.com.... interacts simpler than "Remote desktop" with any version of Windows.
Use an ID no to be passed on to the "guest" on a shared session.. no other adjustment necessary.
Both parties can interact independently.
a.k.a the microsoft way
installed but fn lost...
I honestly cant emphasise enough how easy Crossloop is to use for complete novices and experienced users.... it beats all the rest from that angle. inc. Remote Desktop and Real VNC.
