    Hi all,

    I have no idea if / how possible this may or may not be but here goes.

    I work away from home a lot and am looking at setting up a VPN link from my laptop (when im away) back to my desktop at home.

    Both machines are running Windows XP Pro, is there a way to do it under this OS (with or without addtional software).

    Any info / pointers would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    You can use Remote Desktop, but I'd consider UltraVNC. UltraVNC has file transfer, chat, and screen control. It also offers encryption on the link for security.
