URGENT: Need to access a program from my local computer through my laptop which is setup on a network.
Posted on 2006-10-21
Is there a way that I can access my accounting program that is installed on my HP computer in my home office, through my laptop when I am out on job sites?
I have an accounting program that I need to use when I am working on jobs outside of my home office. I have setup a network and VPN and have configured the firewall and router, however I need to be able to open up the accounting program from my laptop via the network.
Is this possible? If so how do I do it? I am running XP Professional on my HP and XP Home on the laptop. I don't want to use Remote Desktop. I just want to be able to be able to enter my home network from my laptop and then open the program from my laptop and do my working within the accounting program.
This is an urgent question and would love to give 2000 points to the IT expert who can guide me step by step in accomplishing this task. Unfortunately I can only give a maximum of 500.
