I would like to set up peer to peer remote operating on 2 laptops with a wifi connection.  Unfortunatly I am using winxp home which does not have remote desktop and the free/shareware stuff I tried so far leaves a lot to be desired.  Other considerationd are no-tune antenna or auto tuner so I can band switch.  I operate mostly digital and am a 10-10er but do rtty and hell on various bands. Interested in all opinions especially from those who have done this.

For digital modes try the free version of logmein.com.  You can remotely control your desktop via the internet browser. It works thru firewalls and you don't need a static IP or Domain Server.  You can't get sound however.  I have used it for PSK operation and it works.

Skype can provide the audio, complementing LogMeIn. I've used these together for remote digital modes, as well as remote SSB and keyboard-generated CW.

Skype is free for PC-to-PC connections.

SRY folks.  I forgot to mention I am using a vintage dialup with no access to broadband.  LogMeIn and other broadband programs are not an option.  I did get a copy of pcAnywhere but have not got it working yet, it does connect but I can't log in for some reason.  Once all that is solved I need to figure out how to make the station completely operable from the remote.  73 Ken

have you tried TightVNC for your remote connecting?
