Enable remote access to a computer with XP SP2 firewall enabled
Posted on 2004-08-30
My applications uses remote access to computers for configuration purposes. For example, registry, stop/start services, accessing shares etc.
On computers with XP SP2 firewall enabled it seems that there seems to be no connection at all, eventhough Ping works.
The configuring computer runs with a user with administrative priviledges on the remote computer.
When I disable the firewall everything works fine.
Any idea's what needs to be done to enable the remote access, even for a specific IP or user ?
