Remote Desktop with Win XP pro

  Marky_Bhoy 23:13 07 Feb 2004

I have successfully set up a remote desktop with my PC and laptop.

I managed this by sending an invitation by email from my laptop to my PC. Everything works well.

What I would like to know is how to keep this invitation open? For instance I plan to link up another PC to my network. This PC will be situated in my loft without a keyboard/ monitor. It will act as a server for my website etc. (I will use a monitor and keyboard to initially set up the connection)

However, when I switch of my PC I will lose the 'remote connection'. I could go thought the same procedure again. However this will mean that I have to climb up into the loft to set everything up again.

Ideally I want to 'remotely' access this other PC in the loft with my main PC whenever I feel like it.

Can anyone help?

I discovered how to do this by searching in the Windows help. By clicking on the link 'using remote desktop from home' a very usefel tutorial took me thorugth the steps.

Bascially I had to set up the permisions. Then I could log on to the other pc as the default user.

Anyway, its all in the help section of windows.
