  1. Trying to use RDC to connect, but the intended client machine isn't allowing a connection. System Properties shows "Remote" tab on client, however only Remote Assistance Check Box is showing, there is no "Remote Desktop" section where a checkbox allows you to "Allow users to connect remotely to this computer" Terminal Services is running, RDC addin has been installed. What would make this part not appear. (It is not greyed out, just missing completely)

    You are using crippleware called "Windows XP Home"?

    Go to the Control Panel> Administrative Tools> Services> right click on Remote Desktop Connection> change dialog box to Automatic> start the Service.

    Don't know why I didn't think to ask the owner of the client box what version of XP he had installed. Thank you. I am assuming that there is no way with Home Edition other than Remote Assistance?
