    you can try remote desktop in XP,

    click on START, programs, accessories, communications.

    when you launch RDP, click on the local resources tab and make sure you map, DISK DRIVES.

    If you're behind a firewall you probably have to open up some ports.I believe the port RDP is on is 3389

    too bad you don't want to try 3rd party software, this one is interesting:

    its free.

        are you dialing in directly from modem to modem or are you dialing into the internet and then connecting via IP?

        here's a snipet from ms site on connectivity:

        The connection to Remote Desktop for Administration uses TCP/IP, either over an existing network connection or by remote access. A remote access server running one of the Windows Server 2003 family operating systems provides two different types of remote access connectivity:

        Network and Dial-up Connections

        Virtual private networking

        RDP uses TCP/IP to connect. However method you use, the connection must be IP based. So if you're not using dialup to internet, then you must setup a direct dial connection from one pc to another, which sounds like you may have already.

        then what you need to do is get the ip address, of the host machine and connect it via that way.

        this fellow i think is going after the same thing you are.
