Hey, all.

I have an old tower that i'm going to mess around with and set up as a NAS Server, but I have a problem.

I have two desktops, the NAS Tower and a laptop. I only have two monitor's, though.

I wanted to control the NAS Server's Tower remotely using my PC. I need to be able to install programs and use the programs as if I was actually using that PC.

Are there programs that will enable me to do this? Does anyone know of a way (that doesn't include hooking a monitor up to it)?

And if possible, i'd like it to be cost free, heh. =D

Thanks, all.

Are you running XP on your "NAS Tower" ?

XP has inbuilt remote desktop, or you could run TightVNC
