I need a GPO that will allow people to access an xp client from another xp client using "remote assistance" only. However, they will not be allowed to use "remote desktop". Whats the best way to achieve this through GPO?

The machines are xp sp2 (firewall disabled) in 2003 AD. Remote Assistance can only be used due to the fact that the target user must "allow" the remote user permission to access their desktop.
