Remote Desktop - Vista home premium to XP Pro
Using VPN I can connect XP to XP Pro. The only issue was setting up a
firewal exclusion for "remote desktop". This option is either hidden or
unavailable with VISTA Home Premium.

In either case, I'm unable to logon to the XP pro machine with VISTA. I see
the start of the remote connection, but get a login error message requesting
credentials.

RE: Remote Desktop - Vista home premium to XP Pro
After a ton of perusing, I finally read the solution.
With XP you only need the host's computer name.
With VISTA Home Premium, you need the host's full computer name.
Start | Control Panel | System | Computer Name tab.
