Cannot Connect To Remote Registry.


We are in the process of migrating all of our users to Windows XP from W2K.  We have noticed a problem while remotely connecting to these machines via the registry editor.  Is there a setting which must be changed before we can access these machines?  

All receiving these errors have Administrative rights on the remote XP machines.  We have attempted such access using win2k and XP machines.  Domain administrators are similarly unable to connect to the remote machine's registries.

Any ideas?
