    Remote assistance

    Is remote assistance avaliable only on Windows XP? and if yes, what would be a good VNC which would ask the user first for permission to connect to his/her machine?

    Cheers,

    I don't remember about whether any of these "ask" for permission, after all you have to be running the "server" so that, in effect, IS permission given the correct password. Take a look <!post=at this thread.,492,360>at this thread.<!/post> I think if you search The Lounge you'll find the topic discussed more than once.

    I do know about remote desktop, with remote assistance you would need to get permisson from the user (the one that u are connecting to).

    One more question: is remote assistance designed only for Windows XP operating systems?

    Remote Assistance is only available in Windows XP and 2003 (and will be in Vista, no doubt), not in Windows 2000 and earlier.
