Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
I assume that the the computer on which you want the Remote desktop and the target computer whose desktop you want to capture are networked properly and the IP address with other TCP/IP settings are properly configured.
That said Go to Start and click Run the Run box will appear. In the run box type "mstsc" command to connect. A box will pop up asking for the "Computer" enter the computer name or more preferably the IP address which you want to connect to and capture the desktop remotely the Target computer.
Go to the target computer physically and right click the "My Computer" icon and then in the menu select the properties tab and click it you will see "System Properties" window pop up. On the top you will see some tabs. Select and click the "Remote" tab. At the Remote Desktop make sure that the "Allow users to connect remotely to this computer" check mark is selected if it is not ticked tick it. This is the way you are allowing your computer and other computers on the network to connect to this target computer.
Now go back to your computer click the connect tab.It should always connect as long as you give the correct IP or computer name in the "Remote desktop connection" box.
Best of Luck!!!

I advise checking out http://www.teamviewer.com/solutions/support.aspx
This is a free software that gives more remote accessibility than Remote Desktop Service.
From experience, if you reboot your computer; the connection is lost. You have to reconnect and that can take a minute.
