Remote Desktop, a function included with Windows XP
Professional, enables you to connect to your computer across the Internet
from virtually any computer
, Pocket PC, or smartphone
. Unlike a typical VPN
connection (which will give a remote
PC access to the company network) Remote Desktop will actually allow you to see and control your connected PC as though you were sitting directly in front of it.
