Hi,
As the title indicated, I would like to be able to dial into my home computer from work and be able to access my files as well as control some functions of the computer. I was told that the way to go was to buy a program called "laplink Gold". I am running windowsXP professional on both machines. Can you tell me if I need a seperate program to be able to do this or if I indeed need a program such as laplink???
Thanks so much!

duvall just so you know Remote Desktop is all you really need. It will allow to connect to the the mahcines involved and you don't need any third party utiltiy to make a remoted connection.

Oh I misread your question. You want to dial into your laptop. I think Remoted Desktop operates through the Internet. LabLink will allow a direct dial in. and so will these

LabLink is damn near the industry standard so it would be a good choose as would pcAnywhere. They are highly configurable. And on your laptop if you set the one choose to launch at startup you can have the laptop reboot and after it has boot into the OS you will still have access to the computer. Also these remote control programs do offer some security though password on the connection.
