Remote Desktop Connections

I was researching setting up RDC connections here and when I looked to verify that Remote Desktop Connections were enabled by looking at my computer properties remote tab - there is no check box for this - only remote assistance.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

The version of Windows XP you are running is WinXP Home or Media Center which does not allow for RDP only remote assistance. You need WinXP Professional.

jenkinsme is half right. Sounds like you are running XP home. Media center edition does support RDP as does XP pro, tablet, and Pro 64bit.

With xp home you can always look into VNC or programs based off it for a free solution or something like pcanywhere by symantec. You also have solutions like gotomypc.
