Hi,

as an administrator I want to connect to two XP Home Computers after a
dsl router for remote support. To tell which client to connect to I
configured the router to forward incomming port 3345 to the first
client's port 3389 and port 3350 to second client's port 3389.

In case of invitation I change the port (and IP) within the invitation,
and everything is fine.

But I want to OFFER remote support to make the procedure more easy. How
to tell the port number when I have to tell the remote IP while
starting support connection. Is it possible at all? When I write IP and
port this classical way - 128.45.45.12:3345 - I got the message system
was not able to find the client.

Any idea? Thanks for help.

Remote scripting will probably allow you to remotely issue an invite from the client

"WSH 5.6 ships with a new object, WshRemote, that is designed to do exactly this. The WshRemote object model provides an execute
method that will run a WSH script on a remote Windows machine."

Hi Mark,

thanks for responding. Could you or somebody else tell me how to handle
the WshRemote object to create remote support invitation? And if it
should be possible in WHS then it should be possible in VB6, too, what
I prefer.

Okay, Mark. The script works, but only the way I already know at
start-run

hcp://CN=Microsoft%20Corporation,L=Redmond,S=Washington,C=US/Remote%20Assistance/Escalation/Unsolicited/Unsolicitedrcui.htm

Unfortunately I still don't know how to change default port 3389 to
something else. You remember that the DSL router expects a certain port
to forward my request to the proper computer within the lan I want to
get through. Any idea?

Hi Mark,

when I understand you properly you say that port forwarding is possible
if you have configured firewall right. But there is no firewall running
at all. What to do? Otherwise the invitation methode would not run, but
it does.

No, you don't need a firewall to forward a port. Whatever is acting as your router or proxy server should do that.

You are trying to make Home into Pro. Good luck.
