    Windows Mobile 6 comes with an application called Resmote Desktop Mobile. How would I use something like this?

    Thanks

    You first have to ensure that your computer is connected to the Internet.
    You then have to enable Remote Desktop on your computer and be sure our firewall(s) allow that port which I don't remember off hand.
    After that, you need to note your IP address and use that as your host name on your Remote Desktop client.

    The hitch, however, is that I hear the home versions of XP and Vista do not include Remote Desktop but I can't vouch for that for sure as I've never used home versions.

    That port is 3389.
    I just wish my borrowed WM5 ATT 750 could connect at the 128 bit encryption level. I'm in search of a solution until the WM6 update comes out. (I don't want to reduce the security level of my server.)

    But Mocha Remote Client does, at http://www.mochasoft.dk I had no trouble getting into my office Windows 2000 server with the usual login that we do from our PCs. I also have a client program on my 680, but until Palm comes out with a GSM 3G option I may use the 750 for work... (I prefer the Palm OS and my apps...)

    Yep, Vista Home Premium doesn't have it, and neither does XP Home. I just switched from a 700P to a 700wx a couple of days ago and am still learning my way around, but I did use a VNC client on my 700p (PalmVNC) that acomplished this in conjunction with freeware UltraVNC on my desktop. Just googled for a WM VNC Client and came up with this:

    It's free but who knows if it will run on the wx's non-QVGA screen.

    Then there's mocha, and their site actually has links to competitor programs!

    I can't see from any of these which will work with the wx, but some are free and some (like mocha) cost money...
