    I am aware that Radmin costs and Windows Remote is free...my question relates to the encryption / security of this.

    At work I connect to my home PC right now using Remote Desktop Connection in Windows XP. It does the job an all, allowing me pretty fast and quick and dirty connection to home if/when it is ever needed while at work. My questions are since it is not entirely encrypted upon connection, can the corporate network I am connecting from monitor the activity going on my home PC such as keystrokes, and what I am doing on there? (by packet sniffer or keylogging)

    My question with Radmin comes in, with since there connections are much more secure and encrypted would using this to connect home be much safer and less "watchable" so to speak?

    Thanks in advance!

    Or would Logmein.com be just as effective as Radmin for preventing snooping from the corporate

    From past usage. Radmin is a great product. I have 7 licenses for it. However, it will not work with Win 7. The virtual screen driver will not install. From experience some customers want to see what you are doing so Radmin would be better choice. Also, Radmin will not pass sound like RDP.
