Look into Team Viewer too.. Its another free RDP client that I find works generally well.

Just use Logmein. It can't get easier than that. VNC is generally meant to be used in the same network. Using it over the internet takes a lot more time than Logmein.

+1 for logmein

I've looked into logmein.....

I assume that'll allow me to control folding ?

Yep, dont bother with the pro version, or once your trial for pro runs out just change the properties for the connections to use logmeinfree, pro has some nice stuff like file transfers between the controling client and serving client..... but worst case you can remotly upload to a hosting site then send yourself the link should you need something from the remote machine.

I found this thread while googling for something else. I didn't read all the replies but I had the same issue and here was my solution:

The driver unloads for RDP. You're not running the radeon driver so starting folding will fail. but folding can continue if it has already started. My solution?

I created a batch file that I use to disconnect from RDP instead of the regular disconnecting. What it does is first it disconnects, then is kills folding at home, then restarts it. It does a couple other things but they aren't related to your problem.

I ended up going with Logmein pro2....trial at the moment but I might actually buy it.

Works really well.....I can fully control my main folding rig remotely.

Might have to shoot back to calgary before may and get my server on it too..
