    The program ssh should let you access it, since it's XP do this via a program called Putty.

    It'll let you login to a shell on your server remotly and then let you do things as you were on the box. You'll have to have ssh running on your server, as well as port 22 open in your firewalls, but that's all that is realy needed and the address you ssh to is
    Code:
    username@ip.address.of.server
    so that would be something like
    Code:
    jonny@192.168.0.3
    if the laptop is withing the home network.

    If you are wanting to access outside the homenetwork you'll have to forward port 22 on your router to the server and when your ssh in you'll use the external IP address for the login, somthing like:
    Code:
    jonny@86.495.2.15
    I hope this helps a bit.
