I have win xp at office and 98 at home. I have broadband at both places. We do not have any office network at office. How do I set up a remote connection so that I may be able to leave the office computer running and access that computer with my home pc. Secondly, I do not have a domain name. Can I access my office computer with my home computer. Please help.

If the office PC is running XP Pro then you can use Remote Desktop. Look at these pages for help
with that...

If the office PC is running XP Home then UltraVNC is an option. Get the server, client and
encryption plug-in from...

but how would I know sitting at home where I have to login to. I really do not know the specifics. Do I have to buy a domain name and relay the domain with my machine which should act as a server
