    Default modem-to-modem connectivity

    i am wondering if it is possible to do remote desktop not
    over the internet but by dialing into one xp pro machine.
    internet is not really an option as its dial up and the
    office people want to connect from home when no one is in
    the office. in the office all there is is 2 xp pro
    machines networked. home machine is xp pro also. all
    have modems. is this possible or do i have to look into
    some remote control software like pcanywhere or pc-duo
    which has dial-up capabilities?? i've been trying to find
    stuff on ras for XP but not having much luck finding
    exactly what i am asking. thanx.

    Default Re: modem-to-modem connectivity

    I do that occasionally, ie. dial into one of my home XP Pro boxes and access it or other XP Pro
    boxes on my LAN using Remote Desktop and my PocketPC Terminal Services Client. You can see how I
    setup my XP RAS sever on this page. Ignore the part about the PocketPC in your case.
