I have two computers running XP Home on a wireless network.

I am trying to access either PC from the other via the Remote Desktop
Connection application but every time I try to access the other PC an error
appears saying 'The (LAN Name) domain/workgroup does not contain any
terminal servers'

I have also noticed that under the 'control panel/system/remote tab the
'remote desktop' box is missing and only the 'Remote assistance' box is
shown.

Can anyone tell what I need to do to get this working?

Any help would be appreciated.

XP Home cannot function as a Remote Desktop Host. Only Remote Assistance is
available.
