    Hi,
    I have Windows XP home...at home, and I would like the capabilites of Remote Desktop Server so I can log into it from afar. Is this possible? Any recomendations? I don't want...or have for that matter...the money for XP Pro, plus I only want this one feature. Can that functionality be purchased or turned on? If not, any open source software that will do the same?

    Thanks in advance

    Remote Desktop is not available in XP Home. You can use anyone of the many freely available VNC application.

    I prefer UltraVNC over RealVNC. Just seems to have more features and uses encyrption.
