I am accessing another computer via remote desktop. When I try to launch dial-up networking on the remote computer (the one I've accessed via RDP) the remote desktop connection freezes up and I loose connectivity without actually having been disconnected. If I disconnect my session (disconnect because I can't log off due to it being frozen) and try to reconnect, I get an error message stating that the remote computer can't receive the connection or is too busy. The remote computer then needs to be restarted for me to gain access again.

Can dial-up networking be used via remote desktop (or terminal services, if you will)? When I mentioned the problem to a friend, he mentioned that WinXP must be having a communication conflict.

My computer runs Win2000 Pro; computer I access runs WinXP Pro

Any help would be appreciated.
