I have windows xp home edition on both of my computers, and they do have a remote desktop program, but ive found out that windows xp pro actually has a better version of it that will actually work. I cant get the windows xp home version of it to work. Is there anyone that knows of a free remote desktop program, or if someone would be able to send the windows xp pro version of the remote desktop program.

Well, I just built a new computer and have WinXP pro. But when I used to have Windows XP Home, I just set up the remote desktop feature on Netmeeting. You have to create a Windows User that requires a password. Then all you do is call your IP from a remote computer, it will ask for the name and password and thats it.
