Control Another PC with Remote Access

You can control a computer—virtually moving its mouse and typing on its keyboard—over the Internet, using either Windows XP’s built-in features or a third-party program.

When you are at work, wouldn’t it be nice if you could log on to your home computer to check your email or find a file you took home? How about using your home or office desktop computer from your laptop on the road? You can use a remote control program to use another computer over the Internet, viewing its screen on your screen and giving commands via your mouse and keyboard. Windows XP comes with a feature called Remote Desktop, or you can use a third-party program. Windows Messenger [Hack #97] also enables people who are chatting to share control of each other’s computers.
