Hi Experts,

I have two Windows 7 Pro computers within a LAN, one of which I use as a server and I am wondering if I can connect to it via RDP, so I don't need to connect monitor, keyboard and mouse?

Thank you

Yes, you should be able to connect via RDP, PRO and Ultimate have the "server". Worst case you setup teamviewer or VNC as a quick backdoor access to do your quick admin duties.

Sorry, by "server" I mean that it has the ability to SERVE the Remote Desktop Protocol. It can be connected to remotely.
