Quick question, I have been able to set up a remote desktop connection from this laptop running vista home premium to a desktop running windows xp media center edition and I'm able to roam around no problem. But I'm just curious if I would be able to tap into it and do work while someone can watch what I'm doing on screen. See right now as soon as I log into it the profile is logged off on the desktop and if I log back in, the laptop is booted out. Anyone know how to change this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

IIRC you cannot have 2 connections to the same user. You can only be logged in to RDC or Locally (physical at the machine). For what your asking you would need a program like VNC to connect to your XP MCE machine, then you can see what is going on locally by being logged in remotely at the same time.

Short answer no.

I actually found out what I was doing wrong but thank you for your response anyways. I was using the wrong application, I was using Remote Desktop Connection when I should have been using Windows Remote Assistance. Case closed.
