Q. What's the remote connectivity feature of Windows Live Mesh 2011?

A. Live Mesh 2011 can remotely connect to a system that's running Live Mesh 2011, either from another machine running Live Mesh 2011 or through the Live Devices website, once you've signed in with your Live ID.

To enable remote connectivity through Live Mesh 2011, you need to select the Allow remote connections to this computer option under the Remote area of Mesh, which enables the necessary firewall exceptions and services for the remote connectivity.
