How bad is it to have Win XP HOME at work - in LAN ?
I ask for security reasons - I just logged off in winxp home from
vncviewer and it said -closing all network connections ...- and my vnc
connection still remained active :)?
sometimes winXP's tcp parameters keep a connection open for 4 minutes or more.
try using tcpview.exe ( www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/source/tcpview.shtml )
also, some programs dont exit clean, etc etc...
