The machines are on a local domain (the computer name is XXXX.DLS.LOCAL) with static ip addresses.
I have an administrative network account. Even with administrative access, I cannot Remote Desktop to the 2000 machine. After looking at other forums, I see suggestions to use free VNC.
I guess I could take this route, but for my own edification, I was wondering if this was even possible. I was able to Remote Desktop from 2000 (host) to the XP machine using the remote desktop connection software from microsoft http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloa...RDCLIENTDL.mspx
However, I can't go the other way xp (host) to 2000....which is really what I need to do to troubleshoot the antivirus sophos software.
