  1. I'm using Windows XP Professional on the remote PC. A few weeks ago, I can connect to it just fine. But now everytime I try to connect, it only display blank screen, without any login box and I can't get to the desktop screen.

    Connection should not be a problem, it has static ip, no firewall run in background. no IP conflict and I can use the computer just fine on the terminal itself :(

    I can even run Virtual PC and install FreeBSD on it and connect via ssh from other computer... But STILL having no login box when trying to connect to the computer itself :(

  2. (Let's put licensing and things along that aside)

    The computer:

    - Pentium 4 2.4 Ghz

    - 512MB of RAM

    - Let's say the rest is not related

    Usage:

    - Used by three user: me, the owner, other users

    - I usually remote it from other pc (while other users/owner is using it on the physical location)

    - Gaming (mainly WarCraft)

    - Office and some other things (including browsing, irc, http access, playing movies, data transfer (usually via usb drive), etc)

    - FTP server (mainly for personal usage)

    - Download client (torrent, irc, http, etc)

    Currently using Windows XP Professional, with concurrent remote desktop hack applied. Not stable at all :( (it was not originally intended for that kind of usage in the first time installation, so that may be one of the factor).

    Now considering reinstalling it (clean install).

    The question is: which one should I use, XP Professional or Server 2003? :wacko:

    I'm expecting uptime at least >1 week without restarting

    Trying Windows Server 2003 on other PC. Problems I find until now:

    - No fast user switching (which means the owner and other users will need to log off after using it. Not really a problem... will be solved with little explanation)

    - USB drive is not given a drive letter automatically (registry tweak, anyone?)

    - Not easy antivirus choice (currently using AntiVir PE Classic. I hope it's okay...)

    Problems with Windows XP:

    - Not stable for concurrent remote desktop usage (with hack. Not doing this is not a choice...)
