Is it possible to have a PC running Win ME ask for remote admin on a PC with XP over a network?

Um, I was assuming that you have used remote desktop or terminal services before. But, I was wondering, have you? If so, then this is a really straightforward process for you. If you need any help, just ask.

I am not sure about the remote assistance, but If you connect to a Windows 2000/.net terminal server with anyother client than windows 2k/xp you'll only have 90 days to use it. That is unless you fork over the money to buy clients. Windows 2k/xp come with a client and 9X do not.

Have a great one.

That's in application mode, not administration mode where those licensing issues come into play:

You only get 2 concurrent connections in administration mode, and you can connect with pretty much any MS OS (and even Linux with a special utility). As for NT Terminal Server, I am not aware of any special licensing other than general user connections (CALs) to it to begin with, so the OS *shouldn't* make any difference.

Back to WinXP, here's a link from MS giving a pretty good overview about it:

And a bit further down, using the left frame on that page for navigation, you will see this little gem:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/winxppro/reskit/pree_rem_huxe.asp

This link begins to show how to enable it and how to select non-admin users to connect to it.

Once you start using it, it's hard to go back. I administer 7 servers with TS, and another 10 WinXP workstations/laptops (test rollout on these babies) using TS/Remote Desktop/RDP and it makes life MUCH easier.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
