I have xp prof. can I do a remote asst with win98 & other windows? If so, do
I need something called "client software?" & where do I get it? I know xp to
xp by default & I tried with another xp user & it sent her e-mail request for
asst. to herself! I have linksys wireless networking on 1 other pc.
I ALSO DESPERATLY need to access my pc upstairs to check & see what my
grands are doing & to do maintainence. My pc is the administator. I just
can't get up/down the steps like I use to.
Please help & explain good. I'm just learning tech, ok? (:

I'm afraid that Remote Assistance requires Windows XP on both ends of the
connection.

In addition to Bill's comments, you might look into using UltraVNC (or some other flavor of VNC) to
access/control the W98 PC...
