Do you mean that I can access my friend's Vista (Bussiness edition) from my
XP SP2 or 2000 machine? In my XP SP2 machine, what do I need to setup? and
what need to be setup in Vista?
I'm confused about the following:
Remote Desktop Connection
Remote Desktop Web Connection
Terminal Service Client
I'm located in US. I'm trying to access my UK friend's Vista machine to
solve a problem for him.
