Remote Assistance Connection problem

I have tried remote assistance thru MSN without any problem with a friend of mine, worked great!! Tried it with my in-laws PC and I get the following error:

"Remote Assistance connection could not be established because the remote host name could not be resolved. Please try again."

I am on Bell Sympatico DSL high speed and my in-laws have Direcway (DirecPC) two way satellite internet?
Any idea's, I have updated MSN, ran the latestest patches and checked out most of the Microsoft tech articles without any success?
Made sure that the PC is set-up for remote assistance...etc...
