    Hi all,

    Thanks for allowing me to join this community. I have searched and not found a simplistic answer to this problem. I have Vistas Home Edition Premium on my home laptop, connect with router. What is the cheapest and most effective way for me to access my desktop remotely from my Iphone. Seems like everything requires upgrade to Vistas Business edition or purchase of additional software. Any advice much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Get realVNC on your PC and either JaaduVNC or MochaVNC on your iPod (refer to my comparison of the two apps here)

    All this time I have been using Jaadu RDP and VNC, but now I tried logmein and its so much better, it even lets you log in to the pc without having to leave it logged on, and the best thing is it works with Edge, without having to do some port forwarding crap

    Thanks for the welcome and the help you guys. In using Logmein, you have to use ignition, correct? That is a $30 application or am I missing something? Again, thanks for the welcome. I am female BTW.

    first at all welcome on board =)

    now to your request:
    the feature you are looking for is integrated into Windows Vista Home Premium: it is called Remote Desktop from Microsoft.
    It is disabled at the beginning. To activate it do it this way:
    http://www.unet.fi/fransblog/2007/08/30/enable-remote-desktop-connection-on-vista-home-premium/

    after you have done that you can use:
    Remote Desktop Lite from Mochasoft (free) on your iPhone to connect via RDP (use your internal PC IP).

    This solution is the fastest and most comfortable once after it has been set-up successfully.
    The setup itself is a bit complicated like described above.

    If you have any questions regarding this method then ask.

    Another easier but noticable slower method is to use Teamviewer http://teamviewer.com and the Teamviewer Client (free) on iPhone.

    If you want to connect via Internet then Teamviewer is the easiest solution for you since RDP over Internet is not easy to setup nor to secure...

    but again: questions? you're welcome
