I use my work laptop (client) to to remote desktop into my larger home
computer downstairs (host). Works great - love it.

My basic question is - since I am using the work laptop as basically a
keyboard and monitor into a larger netowrked home computer - can I be tracked
on my work laptop where I am surfing to or from.....?

Basically can work see what I'm up to using my laptop as a remote desktop
client....?

Thanks.

Technically - yes.. Because since it is "works" computer, they could have
installed their own keylogger or any other tracking software/device they
wanted.

The reality - what you do on the remote machine (other than the keystrokes
you send, etc) stays on the remote machine. "Work" would have to CARE and
also have the technical expertise to do what I said earlier.

Thanks for the quick response - I realize "anything" is possible in terms of
the keystroke logging, etc.... but within reason, "what happens on the
remote computer, stays on the remote computer"......... :^)

Thanks again.
