Remote Desktop In Windows XP
If you enable Remote Desktop in Windows XP Professional, it will give you the ability to access your desktop from a remote location. You can access your applications, files and network resources as if you where sitting behind your computer.
Remote Desktop is an evolution of the Terminal Services functionality formerly available only in the Windows 2000 Server family. Remote Desktop is not available in Windows XP Home Edition.
When you install Windows XP Professional, Remote Desktop is disabled by default. You need to enable Remote Desktop before you can use it to connect to the computer remotely. Simply follow these steps:
1. Make sure you are logged in as an Administrator.
2. Right-click “My Computer” then click Properties.
3. In System Properties, select the Remote tab
4. Select the Allow users to connect remotely to this computer check box
To use your computer to connect to a system running the Remote Desktop, you need to set up your computer as a Remote Desktop Client. Another requirement is that your computer must be able to connect to the remote computer by means of network connection, dial-up, or Internet connection.
Windows XP Remote Desktop Client is already installed by default. You can find it by going to ‘Start->All Programs->Accessories->Communications->Remote Desktop Connection’.
