techie needed! RA vista > xp home

Trying to give remote assistance to my mother on xp home, I'm on vista ultimate. I installed the kb update from microsoft to enable this but all I get after I accept the invitation is the RA screen with "attempting to connect..."

The problem could possibly be her router firewall but as I can't get access to it and she has no clue what she's doing I can't open up a port or anything...any ideas?

problem solved!

oh the problem was what i thought it possibly could be but my mum figured out how to open the port in her router all on her own..I was quite impressed!

Next time swap your mum for a thai mail order bride. They have no idea about computers but they have loads of knowledge about getting thru ports.
