    Hi there.

    If you can't use RDP (you can't CONNECT to RDP if the remote computer is not running a PRO version of Windows or above) why not try the free TIGHT VNC program -- does the same job and will run on all versions of Windows including XP (and even W2000 if you still have it).

    TightVNC: VNC-Compatible Free Remote Control / Remote Desktop Software

    Cheers

    Team Viewer is edition independent as well. But in order to avoid the time out factor per session without the commercial key you simply have to log back in each time a session ends. TV will also run on everything from 2000 to 10 without problem being version/edition independent. TeamViewer Support – Help regarding licensing and technical issues


    With the upgrade to Pro you decided on there however neither of these would be necessary but options available mainly for none network connection if you happen to be out and need an unintended remote access.

    Hi there
    I question the promotion of Teamviewer here when a FREE product does the job better and without the annoyance of timeout per session etc.

    The other thing about Teamviewer is that in some places you won't be allowed to run it either as you have to connect to an external server. Tight VNC simply uses standard RDP protocols.

    Cheers

    That was already solved by the upgrade to the Pro edition. As I was saying the rest would simply be optional.
