    Remote edit of registry

    Hi folks,

    Is it possible to connect to a user's workstation over a network as the administrator, and edit their registry from either a command prompt or through Network Neighborhood?

    The workstation in question is running NT 4.0, and I'd like to connect through a Win2K server.

    Thanks,

    Charlie T.

    Charlie, believe it or not you can do it through your own registry editor (REGEDIT.EXE). That is, if the default settings on the remote system have not changed - when installed, all NT based operating systems enable the Remote Registry Service. Click on the Registry menu, and then on Connect Network Registry. Enter the UNC path - COMPUTERNAME - and it should appear at the bottom of your current registry editor session.
