Question by kris: How can I use remote desktop between my laptop and my home computer when I’m away from home?
I’ve got remote desktop running between the two computers when I’m at home, but is there a way to connect to my home computer when I’m not home? I don’t want to spend any money on remote access software.

Home Computer: Windows XP Pro, connected wirelessly (linksys wireless router, which is connected to the cable modem).
Laptop: Windows Vista Business, also wireless (obviously).

go to a website kalled LogMeIn.com and instal that on both computers, make an account and then try and see if it works, remember that the desktop needs to be on for it to work and the program needs to be enabled or it will show up as offline in the program. hope that helps
