Specs: Windows 7, Intel P4 1.6 GZ
I have a desktop at my apartment but unable to play it freely due to disturbance since living in a old building 120 years old where every move on the desktop server machine the whole building moves when playing video games! I would like to find out if any remote access program is available to play from a remote computer via [remote access] controlling the [mouse & keyboard] from the [laptop] on remote location via the [remote access internet link] to the desktop gaming machine in the apartment? Any help appreciated?

Windows has a onboard Remote Desktop Tool, started from a dosbox.
command name is mstsc.
This tool is not available at Home edition.
For the Home edition, I would recommend TeamViewer as remote desktop tool.

Assumption is the mother of all f*ck-ups.

Yes thanks for reply, but where in teamviewer can one use mouse + keyboard to control a gaming pc remotely together?

✔ Best Answer
Using a remote connection for gaming is going to give you horrible frame rates. The best your going to get with any remote tool is around 5 to 7 FPS and certainly not at 16 million colors.

You might as well load the game on your laptop. Even with a slow laptop it will work better a remote connection.

THX 1137 is absolutely correct.

I've done enough remoting into computers to know that even simple tasks, like checking email or surfing the web, on the remote computer become slow.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

You have to remember you are coming in the same connection you are going out on thereby doubling the bandwidth usage.
