How do I Remote desktop

  alacrity 12:06 05 Aug 2006

I have two desktop PCs, one running XPpro, one running XP home.
I've got a netgear router and I've managed to network the pc's for file and printer sharing.
I've tried to set up Remote Desktop, I get as far as starting Remote Desktop Connection, but when I browse for available computers I can see my network workgroup, but when I try to locate a computer on the workgroup I get the message "The XXXXX Domain/Workgroup does not contain any terminal servers"
In networking terms I'm probably down with the retarded pondlife but any help you can offer an unevolved plankton would be appreciated!

Have you forwarded the relevant ports? click here Is each client firewall producing any block message or rule request in response to the access attempt?
