      Windows Remote Assistance

      I've just got Sky Broadband. My brother in law can't seem to connect to my PC via Windows Remote Assistance. Do I have to make a change to my Firewall Rules or other Router setting?

      I`ve never been able to get Remote Desktop to work , I always use Logmein for free : https://secure.logmein.com/products/...lt.asp?lang=en, easy as anything to set up.

      Remote Desktop is not the same as Remote Assistance,

      Remote Assistance is done using messenger most of the times,
      Plus Remote desktop is only on XP Pro and Vista Business & Ultimate,

      If you are having bother with remote desk top i would say turn on ISS and use tswem and remote desktop can be done using a browser,

      See links :

      Set Up Remote Desktop Web Connection with Windows XP

      Easy to use and set up,
      Also this can be accessed by any computer with a web connect some thing like log me in but no extra cost.

      But for the op ,
      Make sure you system is set to let you use Remote Assistance,

      This can be done by going to in the control panel and going to system and clicking on the remote tab,



      If this is ticked check your software firewalls also.
