techie needed! RA vista > xp home

Found 9th Apr 2007
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!

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.
