  1. hi try one of them

    logmein, teamviewer
  2. You can use it for remote desktop - If you don't have Windows 7 professional - take a look at applications like teamviewer, gotomypc or logmein.

    Dex, thanks for the reply. I need to be able to physically plug in my laptop into the Dell computer so I can access the Solaris system without hauling around a portable monitor and keyboard. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.
  4. Guys... Hyper terminal???!?

    I know, it doesn't com pre-packaged with Win 7/8, but it'll still runs just fine and there are multiple sites to download it from.

    Thanks.

    If your Solaris is running X-Windows, you can install X-Windows server on your laptop and connect to Solaris.

    Apart from Hyperterminial, another good option is PuTTY - it allows for serial, Telnet and SSH connection.
