Hi y'all.
This is a bit of a techy question, but if any one can help me, i'd be appreciative.

I have got two computers, a PC and a Laptop, and i know that there has been Remote Desktop Web Connection software available for XP, but now i have Vista installed on both machines, Ultimate on the PC, Business on the Laptop, and was wondering if there was any software available to connect them both over the internet using Remote Desktop Web Connection.

I have searched some sites, including the Microsoft Tech support site, but most of it is gobbledy-gook, and can't make head nor tail of it.

Any help would be great, thanks guys.

Well, make sure you configure both PCs to allow Remote Desktop Connections. Secondly, if you're going through a router (and most routers act like firewalls) you have to open or forward the TCP port to your computer's IP Address (which it will obtain from your router if your router is acting like a DHCP server).

Hope that makes sense and helps. If not, let me know.
