WHS Remote Access shows "Home" & "Shared Folder" Tab, but does not show "Computers"? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Do I need to set something up on the WHS to access my Home PC's (both are Vista-Ultimate)?  I can use Remote Desktop on them when I am at the House but I don't even get an option when using the WHS Remote Access.

    On the WHS Remote Access I have a "Home" and "Shared Folders" tab but I don't see any "Computers" tab.  I can't seem to find any options to do this ...

    What am I missing?

    Can anyone point me at somewhere to read up on this?

    If not, the computers tab will not be listed, since the other browsers do not support ActiveX controls by default.
