I want to be able to control my other computer over the network. My other computer runs win95 and this computer runs windows 2000. I was thinking of netbus, but that really doesnt have a remote control, and someone would probably hack into it, if its on the net. Does anyone know of a windows program that will run under NT and 95 that will let me control the other pc remotly.
Thanks

You could use VNC (Virtual Network Computer) - a free remote tool:

Find it here:

www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/index.html

It's a great tool, VERY simple to setup and use.

Works over TCP/IP, allowing you to see another Win9x,W2K,NT40 Desktop and use the keyboard and mouse.

Also safe - you need the receiving PC*s password + TCP/IP adresse. Then the VNC server needs to be active and you need to know the selected password.

I am using it over both LAN and dial-up (ISDN/Cable). Though slow over dial-up it does get the things done. And it is much more easy to setup/use than stuff like PC-Anywhere, Netop etc.
