Unhappy Remote Desktop Problems

I am trying to set up some remote desktops.

But on two PC's the page showing remote assistance then remote dekstop is missing the second option (remote dektop)

This page is found by right clicking my computer, then going to properties. Then clicking on the Remote tab. There should be two choices there, but for me only the top option appears.


Tried microsofts knowledge base, but it just ignores this as being a problem. PC is networked OK, broadband, sharing, neighbourhood etc.

Default Re: Remote Desktop Problems

I assume you are using windows XP home,
in windows XP home you can only invite people to view/control your desktop for remote assistance, you cannot use your computer as a terminal server, that is only available in XP pro.

Yeah; one advantage of Pro. But normally Remote Assistance does the job?
