Connections Using Windows XP Pro!
Many people don't know that with Windows XP Professional, you can enable your
machine to receive Remote Desktop Web Connections. This is great for being able
to connect to your desktop machine (if you are on an always connection) from
someone else's machine. Just navigate to Start | Control Panel | Add/Remove
Programs | Add/Remove Windows Components | Internet Information Services |
Details | World Wide Web Service | Details, and then put a check in the box for
"Remote Desktop Web Connection." Just keep clicking OK to get back to your
desktop, and now you have Remote Desktop Web Connection installed!
To open a Remote Desktop Web Connection to your machine, all you need to know
is the IP address of your machine and then put that in the address field in
Internet Explorer on the machine you want to connect from. (You may have to
download an ActiveX control, it's OK to put on your machine.) If for some reason
you can't connect to your machine, then you may want to right-click My Computer,
choose Properties, and navigate to the Remote tab. Make sure that the "Allow
users to connect remotely to this computer" check box is selected.
