Both linux and windows have ways to allow remote control installed with the operating system. However, AFAIK, only XP has it installed by default. You can use remote desktop. Windows 2000 has a service you can install called Terminal Services and does pretty much the same thing. You can download the terminal services client from microsoft which will connect to remotedesktop and terminal services. If can also be installed as a convenient web activeX I believe.

And as for email, view FULL HEADERS and they should have a field for ORIGIN IP or something similar to that, which will show the individuals IP address.

the ORIGIN IP field that jonconley speaks of must not be common cause I've never seen it before. However, there are RECIEVED fields that are found in all emails. The only problem is that sometimes the first RECIEVED field does not contain the originators IP, but the originator mail services IP. When I say 'first' I actually mean the LAST occurance of RECIEVED.

Example 1:

Received: from 216.136.174.9 (HELO web13609.mail.yahoo.com) (216.136.174.9) by mta175.mail.scd.yahoo.com with SMTP; 06 Mar 2003 10:05:46 -0800 (PST)

Recieved: from (HELO ) () by with ;

Example 2 (multiple fields):

Received: from web2301.mail.yahoo.com (128.11.68.52) by mta135.mail.yahoo.com with SMTP; 09 Jul 2000 17:08:10 -0700 (PDT)
Message-ID: <[email protected]>
Received: from [209.253.72.45] by web2301.mail.yahoo.com; Sun, 09 Jul 2000 17:01:28 PDT
Date: Sun, 9 Jul 2000 17:01:28 -0700 (PDT)

Recieved: from () by with ;
Message-ID:
Recieved: from by ;

In the last example the originator IP is 209.253.72.45. At minimum all Recieved fields will have a format similar to this:

Recieved: from by ;

Nah, you right. I just didn't remember what it was called and didn't feel like checking myself.
