Hi Everyone.
I hope you can help me with my problem
I have a workgroup set up with 5 workstations using windos XP pro.
I tried to manage the other 4 computer from my workstation. After I select
the computer I want to manage I tried to open the Event Viewer folder, Share
folder, Local user and groups, performance log or services and everytime I
get the following popup message
Unable to connect to computer "PC1". The error was:
Access Denied.

I tried using the administrator account from the PC1 workstation and I still
get that message..

Is there other settings that I need to set before I can use this tool or
does this feature only works if the workstations are in a domain and not in
a workgroup.
Please help.

I can not come up with anything else.
Thanks.
