Connecting to a Computer from Another Location

You can set up an incoming connection on a computer so you can connect to the computer from another location. An incoming connection allows you to connect to the computer to access files and to print documents on attached printers and network drives. Before you can set up an incoming connection, you need to log on as the administrator. During the setup process, you can specify whether you want to allow a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection, and which users you want to connect to your computer. When you are connected, Windows displays a connection icon in the notification area on the taskbar. You can point to the icon to display information about the connection or right-click the icon to disconnect, change properties, and perform other tasks.

Create an Incoming Connection

Click the Start button, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to Communications, and then click New Connection Wizard.

Click Next to continue.

Click the Set Up An Advanced Connection option, and then click Next.

Click the Accept Incoming Connections option, and then click Next.

Select the connection device, and then click Next.

Click the Do Not Allow Virtual Private Connections option, and then click Next.

Select the check boxes for the users who are allowed to access the computer, and then click Next.

Select the check boxes for the type of networking software you want enabled, and then click Next.

Click Next, and then click Finish.
