    i have seen it before,

    but how do you connect a windows xp computer to server 2003 using remote desktop?
    is there a client you need to install or is it just a new connection...

    also...i have an IP address of a server at a company...can i just connect to that
    via a remote desktop from my computer?

    interesting stuff...!

    :) :) :)

    Same as you'd do a remote desktop connection from an XP machine to an XP mmachine

    well, you cannot connect to the server in your company using remote desktop unless your machine and the server share the same IP bundle / are in the same domain.
    An alternative is that you can use VPN to create a secure connection into your company's network and that should allow you to do a terminal session on the server.
    However you will have to talk to your IT team if you want this done.
