All versions of Windows 7 can use RDP as a client. So, you already have RDP available to you. Is that what you want?

Do you want to remote into your Windows 7 starter computer, or do you want to connect to another computer using your Windows 7 starter computer? Are you trying to use RDP locally, or are you trying to use it to connect to a computer over the internet?

Yes, windows server 2008 will initiate and also receive RDP connections. I suggest that you install a copy of windows xp or windows 7 on another machine or use an existing computer. Setup it so that it accepts remote access and also that a userid is valid for you to log on.

create a shortcut to %systemroot%\system32\mstsc.exe
this is the remote desktop program on most machines.

Run this program from your machine and then put in the ip fo rthe remote system and you will then be able to log in with remote desktop.

There aren't many people running free server logins that I know of..

Yes and NO. if you do not log out of an RDP session, most programs will continue running unless of course they ask for user input or a mouse click. When you turn off your local machine, you are not connected to the target machine but it's programs are still running (if you do not logout) and then when you turn your computer back on. Going to RDP to the target machine, you will have to log on again but your programs are still running..

Does that answer your question?
