Remote Access Using Terminal Services, Continued
The necessary software to connect from one Windows computer to the other has been available since WindowsXP, or alternatively Server 2003. Look under [Start] - [Programs] - [Accessories] - [Communications] where you will find Remote Desktop Connection.
To select the computer to be controlled remotely, it is sufficient to know its IP address or a domain name.
The performance of the Remote Desktop Connection can be adjusted here by changing the options.
For example, to remotely control the home PC from anywhere, which in any case is connected to the network via DSL flat rate, it is sufficient to set up an account with a provider such as dyndns.org as well as to use software such as DirectUpdate, which continuously checks the connection and transmits its own IP address to the service provider if it changes. However, in the meantime, there are numerous DSL routers that support various DNS service providers.
