make sure allowing of remote desktop is set up, then you need your moms ip address, she'll need a password on her vista account, make sure she is logged out

then just type in her ip, login, pass, thats it :)

It's actually really easy to do, I have a dyndns account setup so I can just RDP to my dynamic dns name. Just forward port 3389 on your moms router to her PC and enable RDP.

 

So, if you have a dyndns name of rdp.dyndns.org you can then RDP into her PC either by opening the RDP client or typing this command: mstsc /v:rdp.dyndns.org

And if both PC's have a firewall make sure to put each others IP in the trusted zone or your firewall will block them. Shouldn't matter though if its just the windows firewall.
