I recently bought a laptop computer with Windows XP Profecssional. I also have a desktop computer with Windows XP Home edition. I have installed a wireless router and have it up and running. I set it up so that only my laptop can access the network through the wireless connection.

When I try to run XP service: Remote Desktop I get the error "The HOME domain/workgroup doesn't contain any Terminal servers." I am not network literate so most of this 'managing the network' is new to me. What should I do? How do you make the domain/workgroup contain a Terminal server?

When I searched for help on remote desktop connection I get the information "To enable your computer to accept remote connections, check Help for your operating platform. " I went to the System on Control Panel to allowed RDC. On the remote computer I am running XP home. This computer doesn't have the choice to Allow Remote Desktop. It does have the choice to Allow Remote Assistance. However, it does have the software for RDC. On the remote computer I am running XP professional.
