Synopsis

Start All Programs Accessories Communications Remote Desktop Connection

Remote Desktop Connection allows you to connect to another computer (or someone else to connect your computer) and use it as though you were sitting in front of it, complete with the Desktop and access to any Windows applications.

To configure a computer to accept incoming connections via Remote Desktop Connection, go to Control Panel [Performance and Maintenance] System Remote tab, and turn on the "Allow users to connect remotely to this computer" option. See Remote Assistance for an easy way to transfer login information to another user.

Connect to a remote system by opening Remote Desktop Connection (Windows XP Professional only) and typing that computer's name (if connected on a local network) or that computer's IP address (if connected to the Internet).
