yea, I'd never had a problem before remoting from ANY type of box to my Windows XP box. Everything changed when I installed Win 7. I love Win 7 for many reasons, but not having LMI work well could potentially be a huge deal killer since I use it so often.
Just a Question
Why use something like Logmein when RDP works just fine and you aren't dependent on any 3rd party application.
If you have a dynamic IP and behind a router you can use something like no-ip to get a free domain name so you can always access your remote computer.
Just allow RDP through your firewall and open port 3389.
If you've got a work firewall blocking this just "Tunnel" using putty.
Google for this -- I won't describe it here as some admins might regard it as "hacking" - bypassing a firewall but tunelling is a perfectly legit procedure -- all you want to do is logon to your own box. Installing Putty as well dosn't need admin rights either.
