My objective is to run a small CNC milling machine on a laptop (easy part). I would like to have it such that i can not only view the display from the laptop on another PC, but if possible, control it through the home network.

Does anyone have any ideas how i would accomplish this?

It would be really handy if i cant(don't want to) sit there for hours on end babysitting the mill, and i can monitor its progress else where, or even stop/pause it.

In computer properties, under the "remote" tab enable Remote Desktop.

From the other computer, start the remote desktop client and connect to the first one. If you can't find it, the program is "mstsc.exe".

You typically need administrator privileges to connect via remote desktop.

For XP or Vista, you can only be logged on as a single user at a time through remote desktop. With server software, you can connect as many users simultaneously.

VNC works as well, but it's less secure.

ah, thanks Leif.

I have downloaded and installed VNC, but i haven't bothered learning how to use it just yet.

I did some reading on the remote desktop, but everywhere i read said it was only available for XP Pro. and not Home. But i see now that is not the case.

hmm...after looking around it seems that an XP home computer can only be accessed by a computer with XP Pro.

I may be stuck with VNC

XP Home only allows Remote Assist. (PITA)
You need XP Pro for Remote DeskTop.

VNC is a good solution.

why are you making it hard? dont use the windows crap, use ultra vnc. it is what the ENTIRE restaurant/retail industry uses so their POS systems can be tweaked remotely.....or so they can "see" the problem without going out there. It is literally as if you are sitting in front of the machine.

i wasn't really trying to make it hard, i figured the Windows stuff would be easier to use.

But i'll start fiddling around with the VNC

There's VNC, Ultra VNC and Tight VNC

VNC was the original and the others are take-offs from that.

Another option would be http://www.logmein.com

It's free and will be a quicker setup if you run into any internal network issues.

The reason I like VNC is because it does NOT require the intermediation of some 3rd party server from the internet.

Hence the reason why I use VNC and Dameware for the 130-employee network that I administer on a day to day basis.

However, web-based RDP solutions do work well for those that have limitations such as operating systems that lack RDP features, a non-working knowledge of firewalls, IP protocols, etc.
