Controlling Another Computer with Remote Desktop Connection

What do you do if you're on the road but need to access a file on your home or office PC? If you have Windows XP Professional installed on your notebook you can open a Remote Desktop Connection, and use your main PC by remote control—over a standard dial-up connection, or via the Internet.

CAUTION

The PC doing the remote controlling has to be running Windows XP Professional. This feature is not available in Windows XP Home Edition—although the machine being controlled can be running either the Home Edition or Professional.
