Note In this command, Drive is the hard disk drive where Windows XP Professional is installed, and WinDir is the folder where Windows XP Professional is installed

/g is a switch (an option passed to the essentutl command)

Replace "Drive:\WinDir" with wherever windows is installed (99% of the time thats "C:\WINDOWS" but it might be different if your install was an upgrade from windows 2000)

i have a router which im guessing has a firewall and im using xp firewall. but i have opened both ports needed in the router and in xp firewall.

i can connect using the xp remote desktop connection program on another pc in my house, but not by using the web connection

thanks
