My story: I have severe bandwidth limitations on my apartment computer (if I leave a download on for too long, the ISP shuts down my connection and I have to call them to unlock it) and wanna log into my parent's computer to set up torrent downloading. I visit them every two weeks and could transfer all the stuff I download then. I'm a noob when it comes to connecting and logging into another computer, and I have a few questions... - In order to use Remote Desktop, I need Windows XP Pro, correct? I only have Home on this computer and I don't wanna (pirate) Pro because that'll exclude me from updating my security. I do have Pro on my parent's computer though. - What other options do I have? Is there other software out there that'll do remote connections for me? If so, what? Is there a nice step-by-step guide out there for setting it up? Please and thank you.
