How do i enable ADMIN$ share and File and Print sharing on a Windows XP SP3 client machine remotely?

I am a domain admin who need to backdoor into some Windows XP machine (about 10) and enable ADMIN$ share and File and Print sharing remotely from my Windows 7 computer. Is there a way I can backdoor into these machines to accomplish this? I do not have the luxury of asking the users if I can RDP into their machines during business hours.

Provided you have admin rights on the underlying systems, you can use computer management to access the other systems.
Tools such wmic, Psexec etc can also be used.

Your terminology in the question ..... Is worrisome.

I guess it wouldn't hurt testing this out,
Using Psexec,and DOS and if those target don't have a firewall against you

this will bring you to their prompt
psexec \\PCNAME -s cmd /c 

Open in new window


from there there some command you might wan to try
netsh firewall set service type = FILEANDPRINT mode = ENABLE

Open in new window

net share ADMIN$=C:\WINDOWS

Open in new window


i don't have an XP to test but I you could check a list of useful commands

You're in a paradox. You want to do something from remote, but you're asking for the things that need to be enabled first to even start a successful remote admin session.
