  • Question

  • Hey all,

     

    In the couple of hours I will begin the installation of the WHS OEM.  The hardware is a new build and I hope ready to go.  The clients, of which there will be four, are all running SP2 Win Home Edition.  That means no remote access to the WHS desktop and a lot of the configuration will have to be handled "locally".  This will not be a problem for the short term but long term it will not fly

     

    Now my question is probably obvious.  Is there any alternatve, other than a migration to either Win XP Pro or one of the versions of Vista, that will allow me to have access to the WHS desktop from just one client and continue to run Home Edition?

     

    Any help is appreciated.

     

    Thanks!

     

    Bill

    No, you can still access the WHS Console or Desktop (using the MSTSC.exe remote desktop client)

     

    You cannot remotely access your WinXP Home Edition machines. (ie, the other way around...)
