    Question programming from home to the lab???

    Hi all,
    I'm using microsoft studio to develop a few programs that I use in lab to run various experiments. I want to write the programs at home, but I don't have the hardware on my home pc. I'm using XP, and wonder if there is a way I can log into a machine in my lab, copy the app to that computer and then run the app. It's a window app with a gui so I can't just telnet. I ahve broadband on both computers so bandwidth isn't a problem. Any Ideas?? Thanks

    Couldn't you just email it to yourself? I do that all the time, Ill compress all of my source code and stuff into a folder and email it to myself.

    Yes he can do that, but he can't test it to see if it actually works correctly, he doesn't have the hardware as he noted.

    Look up vnc programs (there's a couple, realVNC is one). It allows you to connect to your computer as a remote desktop...however if the other computer is running xp it probably has remote desktop enabled by default, and you wouldn't need the software.

    You could also consider PCAnywhere. It's compression is a little better than VNC options.... but then it's not free.

    I'm going to give the remote desktop a try.

    As waldo stated, VNC options are free and doable. I'd look up tightVNC which also encludes encryption and password protection.

    Sidebar:
    did you guys realise that even if someone is logged onto a password protected account in xp, if they're logged in you can use remote desktop to connect and do anything? It's scary, I discovered this while lan'ing at my friends house, we could both connect to eachothers computer without needing passwords. So for those of you who have a network and don't want someone else getting at your pc then make sure to disable all remote desktop options (sending and receiving) on all the computers.
