    Hello, I have a desktop running Xp Home edition service pack 3. I also have a wireless d-link router (desktop connects through ethernet cable), and last I have a laptop running Vista Home Premium. I want to be able to connect to my desktop with my laptop from a remote location. I was told to connect by creating a secure tunneling with using OpenSSH and Putty. I want to be able to control my desktop with my laptop. can someone please help me set this up in a detailed step by step proccess?
