Hello everybody,
Iam using Win XP Pro.I have an other Pc using win98(2 edition).My problem is that i can not use the default remote assistance which deliverd bij win XP . I ve tried with Remote administrator 2.1 and it works perfect (From xp to 98 and not in reverse).
My question is how can I use the default remote assistance between win xp and win 98?
Thank's for help

You cannot, it's meant to be an XP to XP connection, it's not made to be used with other operating systems sorry man

as long as you both have remote assitance running correctly, one set to recieve the invitation and one sending the invitation it should work fine, do you have your or XP's firewall up

No way!!

It does not work. I have no firewall. It works just from xp to xp.or from other operaing sytem to xp (you should install the client on other pc.You can find the client on xp cdrom).But it does not work from XP to the client . Please look to the attachement , there you can see which fout i receive . If somebody knows any solution please tell me.
Thank's

You are trying to use remote desktop connection, not remote assistance. And no, it does not work with other operating systems. You can connect to a box running XP pro from a box running XP home, 2000, NT, ME, 98, 95. Not vice versa.

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
