    Hi Guys,

    Can a Client Computer download/upload from a host computer using remote desktop? Can a client computer start/stop programs on a host computer using remote desktop? Does a VPN need to be setup in order to use Remote Desktop?

    Thanks,

    Heeter

    For XP, will I need TSdrop Copy? Will XP map the drives?

    For a more secure connection, Which shall it be? VPN or Port3389. I do realize that the remote user still has to input a Username/Password. But I guess that I am more worried of the connection itself, once it is established between to Host and Client machines.

    I did forget to mention that both Host and Client are using XP.


    In a VPN environment, can a client machine map a shared network drive, or is that shared network drive only available through remote desktop?

    Can an XP Client remote desktop a Linux Host?

    Thanks for all your help so far guys.

    BTW,

    Thanks for the link, Grimman.

    For now, I will try to avoid purchasing/installing extra software if possible. If Remote cannot do what I would like, then I will reconsider.

    ^^What he said^^^:cool:

    Just FYI, I found this tweak whilst looking for a solution to
    another problem in a different thread.

    It may, or may not prove useful to anyone here, but you never know...;)

    Works for XP Home & Pro, but not Tablet or Media editions.

    Lifted shamelessly from TweakXP.com :p
