Hi Folks, I am a bit green when it comes to setting up remote
connections to distant PCs. What I was about to try to do was to
connect from a PC running WinXP to one running Win98 (both are
connected to the internet). I then had a word with the barman in my
local pub (who is an ex PCguru) who said "do not do that, you will
blow holes in you network security, hackers will be able to logon to
your server with ease"!
Help, does anyone have any comments to refute this statement.
Cheers Dave H
