My buddy and I have a set up where one of our laptops is always plugged in to our stereo but we always hang out in other rooms of our house. We are sick of going back into the room to change songs so I thought we could use remote desktop!

Remote desktop on xp was simple, vista is a whole new story.

We both have remote desktop enabled on our lappys but we cant get it to connect. I skimmed through the help and it tells me to add users BUT THERE IS NO USER TAB!

I was hopping for someone to walk me through real quick on how to solve this.
Thanks,
Drew

Right click Computer / Properties / Advanced System Settings / Remote tab

If all you have is Remote Assistance then you will need another alternative like a VNC client/server

If you do have Remote Desktop
click Allow connections from computers running any version of remote desktop....

Click Select users / Add / Advanced / Find Now

From the list, find the user name you want to give access to. This will be the user you will need to login as from the other system. Generally this is your username on that PC. It is easier to use the same username and passwords on all pc's within your home network and make sure all PC's are in the same workgroup. This should work, otherwise, you might need to check any Internet Security Suites you ahve installed on all computers to make sure remote desktop is allowed and not blocked.
