Remote Networking

I have win xp pro at home setup for remote desktop connections. i had xp pro here at work so i could use my computer from home with no porb. well, i got a new computer with windows 2000 on it at work. i tried to install terminal services, but i think that only works on windows 2000 server. is there anything that i can use on 2000 to use xps remote desktop connection?

I wuold skip all that microsoft stuff and either do PcAnywhere or VNC. pcAnywhere is got the most features and good performance but its kind of expensive. VNC is free and works well, but there is no file transfer capability.

pcAnywhere: http://www.symantec.com
VNC: http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc

Thumbs up you might try Dameware also

it is as slick as PC anywhere without all the clutter. Works very well

Yes, you should at least ck out Dameware

it will even install remotely on the PC you point it at as long as there is someone at that machine to allow you to install it. After the session, you can have it remove itself from the machine.

Its pretty cool, I used it to connect in to boxes all across the country.

Another vote for tightvnc. Who really needs file transfer? Get a FTP daemon.

Everything mentioned works fine. However, no matter who might slam it, Terminal services is still tops. It has less overhead than any of them and better performance overall. (flame on )

If you are trying to Term Serv to a Win2k PRO box, forget it. It doesn't support it and there is no software to let you do it to my knowledge. If you are trying to term serv FROM a Win2k box, then you are in luck. It will work. I don't know the networking situation at your work however, so I cant go much further than that.

heres the deal. i have a server running windows 2000 server at home, i want to be able to control it from work. at work, im running windows xp so i figured i could use the remote desktop connection client that windows xp pro has.

Win2k server uses TCP port 3389 for the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) which Terminal Services uses. You need to make sure you company is allowing traffic going out bound over that port and your ISP (or home firewall) is allowing it to come in.

Hope that begins to help.

BTW, I recommend putting up a FW that allows you to VPN back to home. Mr. Evil talked me into getting a NetGear FVS 318 for just such a purpose (available for under 100 bucks). That will allow you a more secure connection back to your house.
