    Things work best with remote desktop if you assign passwords. On the remote machine (the one to which you wish to connect), create (or modify) an account with the priveleges you wish (limited user or administative access) and set a password. On the client machine (the one you're using to access the remote), connect using the username and password you just set up on the remote.

    Hope that helps. :unch:

    I don't know that there is a way around having a password on a remote desktop capable account.

    It can be done with a blank password, but it will give you grief sooner or later...
