I have XP on my home PC and Windows 2000 on my work PC. I want to connect to my work PC from home. I have the VPN connection establshed and can connect to other PCs running XP with Remote Desktop Connection. I cannot connect to my PC running 2000. I get the following message "Remote connections might not be enabled or the computer might be too busy to accept new connections." Is there something that needs to be set up on my work PC? Is this even possible to do using Remote Desktop Connection? Is there another tool I can use if it is not possible?

As a first step, you need to install the xp remote desktop client on the 2000 machine

If the work machine is only 2000 Professional it will have no built in Remote Desktop capabilities like XP Pro does. You would have to have a Server version of 2000 in order for that to work. Upgrading it to XP Pro would be alot easier and cheaper.
