Enabling Remote Assistance via Default Domain Policy

Hello,

I have a domain setup with about 35 WinXP clients attached. We're going to start using Remote Assist to cut down on some of the leg work. I am assuming that for unsolicited Remote Assistance offers to be shown on the novice's PC, "Remote Desktop - Allow users to connect remotely to this computer" must be turned on?

If so, is there a way to do this in the default domain policy (to save me having to walk around all 35 PCs)?

Many thanks.

Mav.
