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.

ITS FREE

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
