OK, here we go:
Running PSK with a HP laptop/Windows 7, Signalink USB, Ten Tec Jupiter & DigiPan. 
All working good and I'm having a fine time! 
All this is downstairs in my shack.
I have a wireless connection in my house - Motorola 3347 ethernet blue thing.  (Right away, you can rightly figure out that wireless computer hookups are not my strong suite).
Now, upstairs I have an old but stalwart IBM Think pad T30 running Windows XP SP3.
So here comes the question: is there a way to link the upstairs XP 'puter to the downstairs W7 'puter and work PSK remotely from upstairs?
And, the other, obvious, question is: how?
With the highest regard for you zed one guys,
Bill, W0WCA

I use RealVNC on a regular basis when working remotely from my laptop. I installed the program on my laptop and the PC in the shack. The shack PC becomes the "serve" I connect to. There is some knowledge of setting up IP addresses, subnet masks and opening ports (5800, 5900 for Real VNC). Once programs are installed and the computers are configured I start the program on the PC, execute the laptop client, enter the IP and type in the password. If I did it all correctly I see my PC desktop. I also added Skype so I could hear RTTY signals, making it easier to tune.
