Is there a way to turn on the solicited remote assistance in the Group policy on machines that are not part of a domain?
I have about 1000 computers right now that do not log into the domain and I would like to make a bat file that changes a reg key or something to make it so I can offer remote assistance to these computers. But I'm totaly lost on how to do this or if its even possilbe.

Thanks

Configure the Offer Remote Assistance Policy Setting
To configure the Offer Remote Assistance policy setting:
Start the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) Group Policy snap-in: Click Start, click Run, and then in the Open box, type: gpedit.msc. Then, click OK.
Locate the Offer Remote Assistance policy in the Local Computer Policy\Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Remote Assistance folder.
Double-click Offer Remote Assistance.
On the Offer Remote Assistance Properties dialog box, click Enable.
Select whether or not the expert users can:
View the computer of the novice user
View and control the computer of the novice user
NOTE: This setting is for the entire group that is listed. The Offer Remote Assistance policy setting does not provide a mechanism to enable one group of users to have the ability to view the computer of the novice user and a second group of users to have the ability to view and control the computer of the novice user. There can be only one group.


Click Show. The Show Contents dialog box is displayed.
Click Add to add the Domain Users and Domain User Groups.
Click OK, and then click OK to close the Show Contents dialog box and the Offer Remote Assistance Properties dialog box.
Quit the MMC Group Policy snap-in.
