    Remote Access Computer Control

    In a previous post, I asked if we can update or add scripts remotely. Rupp advised me we can through the web interface of homeseer. I would like to take this even further to remotely access a computer running homeseer from another location. In my particular case, I set up homseer at my sister's house. She lives pretty far away. I would like to be able to access her computer from mine at home to troubleshoot. I noticed a thread by CF Guy that mentions VNC http://ubb.homeseer.com/6/ubb.x?a=tp...043#4052933043. Someone also mentioned there is a feature in windows xp that will allow pc to pc control. I think it's through windows messenger, but I'm not really sure. Does anyone have any experience with either of these? Thank you.

    Netmeeting is one of the easiest desktop sharing solutions to use. Its available on all Windows OS's even XP but its hidden. I set up a link a few weeks ago on how to set it up.

    if you using XP you have to use Start - > Run -> conf.exe to get to the setup screen for netmeeting

      Thanks Rupp. Is this similar to the other programs I mentioned and pc anywhere and gotomypc? Will I be able to control another computer and see the desktop? Are there any features I will not be able to access on the remote computer? Thanks.

            Rupp,

            Is there a way to activate remote desktop sharing automatically when the computer starts? This way I can reboot my homeseer pc remotely, and when it reboots, I can still connect to it. Thanks.

              Windows XP Professional comes with a built-in "Remote Desktop Connection" (RDP 5.X) server, much like the Terminal Services Server built into Windows 2000 and 2003 Server.

              Remote Desktop Conection is slick as hell and works as well if not better than any VNC, PCAnywhere, or NetMeeting installation that I have ever seen.

              *BUT*, I don't think it comes with the vanilla flavor of XP... only Pro.

                All you have to do is right click on the icon in the system trey and select "Activate Remote Desktop Sharing" It will stay in that mode from now on. So all you have to do is call the PC using the IPaddress.
