How to Use the Remote Desktop Connection in XP. Have you ever, EVER wanted to use your dear ol' laptop or desktop at someone's house? Well, thanks to XP's technology, it's as easy as 1, 2, 3!

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlTerminal ServerWdsrdpwdTdstcp

Make sure that PortNumber is set to 3389 in both.
