    Hi.

    I have just installed WinXP Home edition in my home and would like to make an connetion from my office. I have tryed to search and read a little bit about it but i must say that i am a little affraid to do something wrong as i have had some problems to get my XP to run correctly and now it finally works.
    I would like to be able to control downloads and other programs in my home but from my office.

    In my home i have a cable connection and i am using zonealarm pro.
    In my office i am using win 98 SE and connecting trough a firewall to the internet.

    I would be very happy if someone could give me a helping hand to get this setup correct.

    Thanks. Finn.

    Well, I would say first disable zone alarm on your home system. We don't want it blocking any ports that are used by Remote Desktop.

    My next question is, do you have a router in between your cable modem and computer?

    Hi.

    Thanks for your reply.

    No there is no router, i am using the Zyxel Bridge 942 cable modem, usb type.
    I have been reading around and found that WinXP Home Edition dont support Remote Desktop. Is there any way around this?

    BR Finn.

    For programs like the Symantec PC Anywhere, do you need separate copies for the each machine? Or does it only take one copy. If I will only be connecting to my friends machine will one copy suffice or do we each need separate copies?

    Thx
