I have a few PC's (W2K) that I can not access/manage remotely, I access them by right clicking on the my computer icon and selecting manage, then connect to another computer. I enter the PC's name then I am told that the PC can not be managed remotly and to check the network. I have checked the network, other PC's on at that location, PC is being used by someone, it works...I just can not access it. Any idea's?

Have you gone to the system properties on the system you are trying to access and made sure "allow users to connect remotely to this computer"?

To do this right click 'my computer' and click 'properties'. Then click the 'Remote' tab. Do that and if the machine is XP (I know you said W2K for now), you'll need to all the Remote Desktop access through the firewall as well. Once that is complete I think you should be able to connect to them.

You can also download and install (from Microsoft) the Remote Desktop Client (only necessary on W2K, it's built into XP), and using that tool you can remotely control the entire desktop, not just manage it.

Hope this helps.
