[ML] Remote Access Software

I need to remotely access a windows machine running Windows XP 64bit at my GF's, and do some update maintenance. For now, I need a recomendation about what software I need running on my late 2011 iMac running ML. I'll choose what to install on the windows machine based on what's compatible with the chosen Mac software. Both my connection and the remote connection are on 50Mb cablevision. My router is a Time Capsule, hers is a Belkin. I am familiar with both.

EDIT: It's a 2012. I really should know what year it is

TIA

Looks like the trick. It will run on both my Macs, my iPhone, and on my Linux Netbook, as well as on the remote Win box, Cool. Installing it here now; will have the GF install it on her machine when she gets home from work tonight. Thanks!!

Yeah, it also runs without any need for router or firewall configs... Which is neat if the other side isn't technically savvy.

Yes, I see. The best part is it will run on EVERY device I have access to, including the Linux Netbook and iPhone.

GF is a total luddite, this is definitely the right tool for the application

Thanks!

MS RDP client makes me cry.

CoRD, while not perfect, is pretty good. cord.sf.net

Splashtop (again) It's multi-platform, secure, easy to setup and use, and cheap. You can also use it from your iOS devices...
