I want to access my dial up home computer from my work computer via the WEB and "control" it.

My work computers WEB access is "always on" and not dial up.

I want to be able to -

boot up / switch on
have full remote access to run programs and do "other stuff".
then shut it down when finished.

My home system is brand new so all the BIOS and everything is the latest (until next week when "they" release the new "latest" ;-)

What's a good program for this ?

Thanks Tim.....

Windows XP & 2000 come with Terminal Services, XP also has a built-in "Remote Desktop"... as long as you know your ip, login, password, and the computers are on the internet, you can then remote control them as they're in front of you.

do you know any 3rd party programs that can run on both win98 and/or NT, and winXP?

One good one I know of is Symantec PCAnywhere. They're up to version 10.5... and I'm pretty sure version 10 worked under XP.

pcanywhere 10.5 i think is needed for xp, not 100% sure tho, but theres also VNC, laplink, remote access, terminal services (2k server only) and of course the slow POS remote thingy built into xp.

VNC is pretty good, it operates in real time.

There's no way you can turn on your computer over the internet when it's a dial-up connection, unless you want to try WOR (Wake On Ring) and have a modem+phone line at work you can use to wake it up.
