Hi,

This year coming i will be going to university. My mother often needs help doing things on the computer. I want to be able able to log in to the network and do remote assistance. I am connected to the Internet via a Netgear router.

Now without opening a port on the router is there any way where i can log in to the network from the Internet and be able to do the remote assistance?

Hope to hear from you soon,

There is a feature within xp that allows you to do exactly what you wish. It involves sending a request by e-mail then answering it first you need to set your mothers pc to allow a remote conection and you are in there, look in you xp help under remote connections.

As i wrote the thread i had the microsoft remote assistance in mind. Ive just had a go with it with my vista laptop and xp desktop over my network. Everything was a ok. I now wonder if my router will block it with the built in firewall.

Your router should let the connection through if not login to the router and configure it to allow remote connections
