Hi Guys and Girls,

i would like to work remotely from home. i ve read about it( creating a connection) and you can only create a desktop connection with XP Professional Edition. I have Home Edition.

Is there an other way around it or am i just screwed?

Do you mean getting a secure connection from your home to your work?
Sun I think has a VPN client for download. Just make sure the tech people at your work set up the connection for you.

its best you speak to your IT techies

you would need to open an access path from your companies server. Its probably controlled using a mac address and its something you need to speak to an expert about
