What is it?

With the remote connections feature in Windows Live Mesh, you can work on your computer from a computer in another location. For example, you can connect from your work computer to your home computer and access all of your programs and files as if you were in front of your computer at home. Before you can connect to a computer remotely, you need to allow remote connections to it in Windows Live Mesh. All remote connections are encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
