I had reason recently to try a Remote Desktop Connection with a PC running Vista Home Premium. While Vista HP allows you to send Remote Invitations, it doesn’t allow Remote Connections to be initiated from the client computer.
I played around with using VNC, but the connection was much more flakey and slower than a RDC session would be. It was with some relief that I found this post from “Fran Goes Blog” with a solution. It worked a treat. Thanks Fran.
