Have you enabled remote assistance on both machines? (You can find it on the remote tab of system properties)

Also, how are you trying to connect, over the internet? If so what kind of connections are the two of you using?

Just to let you know you are not alone

I also have this problem, both computers are using winxp pro, both are on NTL broadband, my nephew can use remote assistance, i cant. i will be watching this thread closely.
