Hello,

Can anyone make a suggestion on a software package (preferably free) that will allow me to connect to my local PC (at home) from my laptop anywhere I may roam with internet?

MY home PC is running WinXP SP3, and my laptop is running Vista Home Premium.

I was thinking it would be ideal to connect to my mapped networked drives (on my home PC) with the laptop, so I don't need to sync my files all of the time.

Any ideas? KISS methods please : )

I'm using Log Me In to reply to this post. Well, it's free, and it does in fact work - although a bit slow. Have to hand it to the Log Me In developers for making the setup and usage very simple and quick.
