Dear Sir,

Can Remote Desktop or VPN Protocols within XP PRO be utilized remotely
to LOG into a small network not using a Dedicated Server, but rather a peer
to peer network (that has XP Pro, Xp Home, Windows 2K & Win 98,) that is all
DHCP with no static IP address. If so, what would be the proper method of
commands to folllow to alow this?

Thank You al for your insigth. Jim B

Yes, you can access the XP Pro machine using Remote Desktop. See this page for help.

I recommend however that the XP Pro desktop be assigned a static IP.

HI Sooner,

Thank you for the link, I will print and read it all. (& most likely have
other questions!)

My other question was on the same network, along with the Win XP-PRO Sys,
we have Win-XP Home & Windows 98 Systems inclusive. Can these also be
accessed remotellythru RD &/or VPN?

Thank You Again In Advance......JIm B @ A.g.d.e.

HI Sooner,

Started to review the llink and read about the Static IP addresses in
liue of Dynamic. I know from what I have read that there are certain ranges &
numbers to choose from and applied to the various systems on the network. HOw
do you know the best numbers to pick for yourself and one question that comes
to mind is how do you know that IP Address numbers picked will not be
infringing on another system/s out there on the Internet. How do you
logically pick a set of numbers for your own small network? Do you pick a
set and then Ping the internet to check or is there a better wayl

Thank You Again...JIm B ( I am really enjoying puting this small project
together and it is comforting to know there are knowleable poeple (such as
yourself,) out there that can assist!)

In the case of my small network a Linksys BEFSR41 4-Port Broadband Router includes a built-in DHCP
server. The server is configurable as to the starting address range and the number of addresses it
will assign at one time. I simply set my static IP addresses below the starting address range of the
DHCP server.

Here is an example page from a BEFSR41 router.

http://www.delilama.net/linksys/192.168.1.1/DHCP.htm

On my home LAN I assign static addresses below that...

You should choose static IP addresses from within the range of your router's
sub-net, but from outside its DHCP allocation pool.

For instance, by default a Linksys router's sub-net is 192.168.1.xxx (where
xxx is any number in the range 2 to 254, as 1 is already taken by the router
itself). By default, the Linksys DHCP allocation pool is from 100 to 150 in
that sub-net. So you would be safe choosing static IP addresses in either
of the ranges:

192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.99
192.168.1.151 to 192.168.1.254

Since these addresses are not directly exposed to the internet (the router
is a Network Address Translation router), it does not matter that these
addresses will clash with those of similar Linksys LAN users all over the
world.

The addresses 192.168.yyy.xxx are not used as directly-connected internet
addresses anywhere.
