Help! Remote Desktop don't work on Dial-up... but work on ..

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.work_remotely (More info?)

Hi All. I have a strange problem. I can connect back to my company's PC when I am using Broadband connection, but NOT working when using Dail-up internet.

When using Dail-up, I can see my desktop, but I can no more click anything and type anything.... it just returns "Ding" sound when I click my mouse button and keyboard button.

I checked that my computer is ok. My method of checking is like this.
1) connect back to my company's PC with Dial-up, and be sure it is NOT working
2) then connect back with Broadband.... NO PROBLEM
3) then connect to the PC within the LAN... NO PROBLEM

Can anybody tell me what's wrong?? Why I can't connect to my company's PC with broadband connection or LAN only but not Dail-up....

I have tested 2 Dail-up computers, so I can be sure it is not the Dail-up computer's problem.

Thanks for you help in advance.

Sincerely,
Alan Lee

    How fast is your connection? Remote Desktop will work at Dialup
    speed, but it will help if you go to the experience tab in the Remote
    Desktop client and unselect the options there to help speed up your
    connection.
