Default Remote Management

After a bit of research and experimentation i realized that XP Home cannot be controlled via MS Remote Desktop.

Anyone have any experience or recommendations for third party software that would allow me to remote desktop to my XP Home computer from my Vista computer?

Toasty Real VNC is the one you wan to go with. Very Secure and password protected.

The host runs the server, the other PC runs the viewer. You do have to have both machines on and both machines running the software in order to connect by IP address. I used it here at home for a while to manag my home network.

FREE!!
