    We have three pc's here, two wire, one laptop wireless. All three are networked. All three are Dells.
    My husband is a novice so I help him as much as I can, now my question is:
    I know about remote connections, but what I'd like to know is , is it possible for the host (me) to access the client (husband) so that I might help him further? I know it can be done from Client to host, but am not sure about the other way around.

    Hi Dan O, sorry but I was away from my pc for a while.
    I'm not running XP Pro, but XP Media Center
    I do have the Remote Connections option in 'accessories' and tried to set it up but it didn't work. Then decided maybe I'd better find out if I will be able to access husbands pc before I bother to try agan.:D
    Thank for your quick reply.
    Any other suggestions.

    Windows XP Media Center includes Remote Desktop and if you following the instructions within the MS article you should be able to set it up.
