Remote assistance using Vista and XP
My mother has Windows Vista and I have Windows XP. I have read and been told that I can remotely assist her.
I have went through all of the settings for her computer and mine to make this work, however when she sends me the invite and I try to accept, an error comes up telling me that the connection cannot be made, either due to a network issue, ticket expiration or make sure the sender has not cancelled the request.
There was/is no network issue, she didn't cancel the request as I was on the phone with her the whole time. If the ticket expired within the two seconds it took me to accept, then there's a problem...

I have Symantec Norton 360, as does she. I tried disabling but that still didn't work. I think the problem could be on my end but I can't be sure. I know this is a mixed question because it's Vista and XP, but can somebody please help me????????????

If you cannot solve the problem, try using logmein free (www.logmein.com). It works across any operating system. You can even control a Mac desktop from your PC. It is simple to set up as well. Great for helping parents out with their computing problems.

You could try Team Viewer 3

|MG| TeamViewer 3.6.4682

I haven't used it yet, but it seems very easy to use. Good luck!

Ray.

I have the same set-up and same problem. Is there incompatibilities between XP and Vista remote assistance that anyone knows of?

Regards, Carl
