When expert clicks "Take Control" I get promt and I accept,t the expert can view my desktop but is unable to click any thing icon or Start button. As suggested on my RA screen, I am not using mouse on my end. What do I need to let the expert take some action?

Hi,

Try taking control in safe mode with networking. if everything works fine then its a firewall tha is blocking stuff.

Also can try this software www.teamviewer.com

Since most of RA is working except full control and that both systems are on the private trusted network (192.168.x.x) I doubt if this is a firewall issue.

There is a better guide at http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/wxprmass.html

Once the helper as clicked TAKE CONTROL and you have pressed OK then that should be it.

(if you have got this far then its not a firewall or connectivity issue)

Bear in mind operations may ake a bit longer than normal.

What happens when YOU click on an icon after giving CONTROL - you both should be able to do this
