Remote Desktop Connection Question
Hi
I am trying to connect my 'Vista home premium' to my work's windows xp. I
am told that this cannot happen as my work is running an earlier version of
windows vista!!

Is this possible to connect at all?

Thanks

No, that is not true. You should be able to use Vista RDC to access XP.
