    Hi,

    I have installed 'Remote Desktop Connection for Mac' on my MacBook as I am looking into being able to remotely control my Windows PC which is in the same house.

    I don't have a physical network setup, however I wondered if I could control the PC via the WWW on my Mac?

    Thanks,
    Picco

    I am actually trying to connect to my PC at work also, which is on a Windows Server 2003 network.

    I go to a URL, login and then select my PC from a list of computer names.

    As ActiveX is required I cannot do this through the browser on the Mac, so i'm in the situation where I can't access it at all.

    Does anyone know how, if I have the IP address of the network, how to connect to it using Remote Desktop Connection for Mac and select my PC?

    Many thanks,
    Picco
