Hi,
I wish to access and run my main PC from a remote PC in my lab. Both are on
a
wireless local network (both can access the internet through a router) and I
can connect to each from the other and transfer files.

I am running (up-to-date) XP pro on both and am the administrator on both. I
recently installed passwords (same) on both PC's and can access and run the
remote from the main, but cannot run the main from the remote which is what I
really need to accomplish.

When I bring up the connection menu on the remote PC and fill in the
requiste info (name of PC, my name, pw, domain) and click on connect, the
menu blinks and the pw slot becomes blank). The pw is the same as that for
log on. I have no idea what is the difficulty. Can someone offer some helpful
suggestions?
In advance, thanks .......
