The PC with this IP address has not be found, or does not have Server service running.
First try to ping the address
ping -n 1 169.254.102.56
and if that succeeds, open Services applet and see for Server service. Start it.

If this is the dialin IP of the server, it might be a wrong one. It is a APIPA address, used if no DHCP and no static IP is setup or available. I reckon you should use the real server IP instead of the APIPA / Dial-in one. Windows often has issues binding services to the dialin adapter - it does not work in most cases.

how can i solve this problem.Or what software can i useto install software on this remote XP machine.the remote coputer does not have internet connection.it has only dial up.that is the reason i connect via dialup connection directly to the remote machine

by RDP, if you enable Drive Sharing in your RDP client settings and reconnect. Your local drives will show as \\tsclient\c aso. in Explorer, and can be used to drill down to the file. I recommend to move it to the root, as drilling down several folders is very slow.

can you please give me more details of how to do this.i will appreciate your help

Start Remote Desktop client, but do not connect yet.
Click on "Options" to open more settings, and choose tab "Local Resources".
Check the drive sharing option.
Now you can connect.

You will have to look into your Services applet of Control panel for the Server service.
