    Is your home PC behinds a router?

    Do you have windows XP Pro?

    Do you have a static IP?

    XP home doesn't support Remote Desktop connections to it.

    Edit: check out VNC ([email protected] is my personal fav.) if you want free, similar setup requirements. If you want super-easy and don't mind paying use GoToMyPC. No router config required on your part.
