Vista Home (client) Remote Desktop to XP Pro (host) should work. But not vice-versa. You need Business version to host.
Assuming that Home edition includes the RD program, which I would think it should.
I can use Remote Desktop on my Vista Home Premium to my old XP Pro computer just fine.

If you want to use RDC, upgrade to Vista business or above. Or use free remote access software like VNC.

My wife and I have two separate businesses that are on the same network using
XP Professional operating system. We both want to be able remote access our
work computer from our home desktop that has Windows Vista Home edition. I'm
assuming that I must upgrade the home computer to Windows Home
Premium.......but will I be able to get remote access to both work computers?
