Explanation of Remote Desktop

With the Remote Desktop feature in Windows XP Professional, you can remotely control this computer (the “Host PC”) from another windows PC (the “Client PC”) from home, another office, or while traveling, through the Internet. This allows you to use the data, specialized UIC applications, and network resources that are on your office/Host computer, without being in your office. You can also transfer files easily between the remote/client computer and your office/host computer.
