I have 2 PCs in my home, one desktop and one laptop. Now I need to setup a remote desktop connection between them. How is it possible?

Windows has everything you need built in. It just needs turning on.

There is a plethora of resources on the internet that show you how to do it.

I know how to enable RDC and that windows has everything built in. But what i don't know is how to enable RDC between both the PCs. What needs to enter in "Computer" field in RDC. Is it IP address? – Romil N May 1 '11 at 14:27
