This instructable requires and a static IP address (one that does not change) for your home computer. Your home computer also must have IIS 4.0 installed (which XP Professional comes with, as does the server line of windows operating systems). It also assumes that your place of work/school does not have a block on remote desktop connections through their firewall (not being in the start menu does NOT mean it is blocked). Your school/work computer can be Windows 9x, Windows Millenium Edition (Windows Me), Windows NT (Intel only), and Windows 2000 (including XP Pro and XP Home).
