I am trying to support my sister in the UK (on Vista - probably Basic or HP)
from here in Hungary (on Vista HP); I've received an invite and the correct
password but we can't connect.
At my end the internet connection is via a Freecom FSG3 Linux based "storage
gateway" with built in firewall - I have enabled TCP/UDP 2869 and everything
else I could fined under Remote Assistance in the Windows Firewall with
Advanced Security (Port forwarding to the address reserved for this machine
on the LAN), and Remote Assistance is allowed through the Windows
At my sister's end she has a BT HomeHub (FOA9?) wirelessly connected to her
PC... and at the time had Remote Assistance waiting for an incoming
connection that never arrived...
[Have no idea whether her box is UPnP, but I don't think mine is]
Some Vista stuff, but mostly just Stuff at http://berossus,blogspot.com
