Hi,

I dont think there is away for this, but can you connect to another machine that can still be used, but under a different setting on Windows XP Pro, like you can with Windows Servers?

Do you mean run two users at once? one for the local user and one for the remote user so that both can use the same machine at the same time? or did you ask about remote access software?

cause Remote Administrator 2.1 is probably the best (under 3mb) remote admin software i've ever used.

No, Remote Desktop is something completely different that Terminal Services on the server OS's.

There are some third party remote connection apps: RealVNC, OpenVNC. I'm fairly sure they can offer the functionality you desire, but don't quote me on it.

THose are remote control programs basically, all you do is access the desktop of the remote PC and the user on the remote has no control over it. Terminal services does this, but they only offer it on servers. You may want to check out Citrix.
