How can I do a remote access of regedt.exe or regedit32.exe on another machine.

O/S on both PC's Win2K Prof.

What I have been done:

Remote machine is on, stuck in a questionable state

On active machine I use the following:

[i] cmd
[ii] In CMD Window => net use \\remote_computer_name\IPC$ /user:administrator *
[iii] Password prompt => admin password entered
[iv] <= connection successful
[v] => regedt.exe --- However this takes me to the registry of the active and not the remote machine.
How do I get to the registry of the remote platform ?

if you run regedt32 (note that there is NO I in there) when it comes up, go to the File menu and select connect network registry and enter in the computer name

NOTE - you will not be able to access all of the registry keys with regedt32!!!
