Has anyone much experience with Remote Desktop, either XP or w2k ? Our workplace has just converted to XP (from nt)and we're not allowed Internet access. But I observed a colleague used messenger to remote controlled a friend's home pc. He was able to surf as if he was home. My questions are: -Does the remote desktop client/net meeting in w2k works with messenger ? -How is the process initiated ? Meaning does someone has to be at the target (home) pc and give permission to the requester for control ? -Can this permission process be automated ? Meaning can I turn on my w2k machine and enabled remote desktop, then use the XP machine at work to control my machine ? As far as I know, neither one of them used any 3rd party softwares such as gotomypc, vnc, or the likes. Both were running XP and using messenger.
