I am quite new to this,hope you can guide me in a systematic manner.

I want to access my home PC or my office using my laptop whenever I am travelling. How can I do that using Windows XP Pro's Remote Desktop Connection?

Thanks in advance

There are dozens of ways to do this including creating a VPN or enabling remote desktop and port forwarding, but the simplest is to use LogMeIn's free software to quickly set it up and configure. It is also quite secure:
If interested in other methods many are outlined here:

You would need to have a static IP to connect to your machine or use a program to resolve it like

http://www.no-ip.com/  which is freee

then you could remote into it using the feature in XP (you would have to switch it on first on the machine you want to remote to and then ensure your account is added to the remote users)

You can find this by right clicking my computer - going to Properties and then the Remote tab

there are other products also like VNC and Radmin

User RobWill actually left this link (apologies for not paying more attention)


I would suggest the no-ip to be running though unless you have a static IP otherwise you will not be able to connect when your IP is renewed by your ISP
