Hi EE,

I wondering how to access / setup machines in a work group to allow remote access from a server machine?

At the moment all I get is an error message when trying to connect from the computer management console.

Thanks for all your help

Hi, since the computers are only in workgroup, there's no central repository of users / passwords. Therefore you will need to have same user account name and password as the one used on server on every machine.
This should resolve it, however you will also need to check the firewall settings on the workstations as well.
Hope it can help you, good luck
