Remote Desktop Client for Mac

I have a Mac that is connecting with remote desktop client to a pc running xp pro. The problem I have is that when I initially setup the connection I was physically connected to the network where the xp machine is running and everything worked. Now I am remote connectng with a DSL connection and althought the mac can connect and access the windows machine, the local drives from the mac aren't appearing in "My Computer". When I was connected  to the XP machine's network I had access to the Windows system as well as the drives on the Mac. I need to be able to transfer files between the two machines and copy and paste didn't seem to work so I need to be able to copy from the XP machine to the Mac's drives.  Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi sccomputer,
      Once you have the connection to the XP machine thru the Remote Desktop, you should just be able to copy and paste between the two.   Are you getting an error?    Look at this link.;en-us;306885

Hi Steven, I looked at the links and that's not the answer. The user is able to connect to the XP machine, the client is setup to bring her mac disks to the XP machine and she even gets a window stating that the disks will be avaiable however when she completes the login, they aren't visible in "My Computer". When the client was tested on the local Lan they appeared in "My Computer" now that she is logginin with a DSL connection, they are not visible.


this could be done easily with an ftp client for the winxp pc since osx got a good ftpserver installed as standard.

I resolved the problem myself, client was behind a firewall and after I opened the port everything is working fine.

Thanks to all who submitted suggestions!!
