What he said. And updated appearance (Vista like), support for 32 bit color, otherwise pretty much the same.

VNC only has a use when connecting to remote X Windows sessions on linux boxes.

Remote desktop is much faster and much more secure by nature of the fact that it is encrypted and versions after that supplied with xp (meaning the server 2003 edition and now this vista version) can use SSL as well.

If you only connect to windows boxen, its crazy to use anything else :)

Yeah, all the Aero stuff in a Vista session is done by the machine you TS from.

You can get Aero by TSing to a machine incapable of doing Aero the same way.

This is just the client, which you would download to connect to machines that support RDP, which XP Home does not. The client can be downloaded to XP Home, but that would only allow him to go out, and connect to a machine that has Remote Desktop configured.

Probably have to try Remote Assistance, or something like PCAnwyhere, VNC or something similar.

It sucks, I can't turn off that pre-authentication which does nothing anyways.... I still have to authenticate when I get to the remote logon screen.

Anyway to turn that off?

From what I know about it so far, no way to turn that off.

Would be good to know how though - has been labeled all over the internet as "broken"

It sure is. In the meantime, I put a . in both fields and hit enter. There is a setting in the options that says 'connect anyway' if the authentication fails.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
