Windows 7: Question about Remote Desktop and Win7 Home Premium

Question about Remote Desktop and Win7 Home Premium

Okay, so I beat my head against my desk for 20 minutes this morning because I couldn't see the "Remote Desktop" section under the "Remote" tab in "System Properties" under "Allow Remote Access" in "System and Security"...

Then I realized that one of my machines is running Windows 7 Home Premium and the other is running Windows 7 Professional. According to MS's website, Win7HP users can't allow a remote desktop connection.

So my questions is... what is there a "Remote Setting" link and what does "All Remote Assistance" connections to this computer do if not allow "Remote Desktop" connections?

I guess I don't understand the difference. Color me ignorant, but I thought (probably wrongly) that Remote Desktop and Remote Assistance were the same thing... But they aren't, right?

Thanks...

I searched for differences between Remote Desktop and Remote Assistance in Windows 7 and didn't really find a side-by-side comparison. I found articles talking about the differences in XP, but not Windows 7.

I did notice one difference: With RA the person needing help has to initiate the process, right? I thought that I read that RD was faster than RA... is that correct? Any other differences in capabilities? Thanks...

Forget remote desktop/assistance - download Teamviewer, free for personal use and excellent program. Far more flexible and very secure.
