Can anyone recommend a way to RDP a Windows 7 Home Premium workstation at my office?
I have setup RDP from my home to a Windows 7 Professional workstation at my office so I know my modem is configured correctly.

It's called Windows Anytime Upgrade. Look in the Start menu.

It's the other way round it doesn't work - i.e. you can't connect via RDP to a Windows Home Premium machine.

That said, there are ways to "enable" RDP to a Home Premium machine. Google it.

A slight adjustment in the registry will make it work. Bing it! (actually Goole might be better)

On windows XP Home, you had to replace a DLL and make a registry change to make RDP work, but it would be reversed regularly when windows updates were run. This could possibly be the same with windows 7 home premium?
