  • Are you running Windows Live OneCare on either computer? Is it the beta 2.0?


    For remote desktop to work natively in XP, both computers need to be on the same network. To connect remotely, there would need to be no router or firewall between them or the router/firewalls would need to be configured to forward the external IP address and ports to the PC inside the router/firewall.
