Remote Assistance

I've been trying to help a friend in Australia sort out a problem with his pc.

I have received a remote assistance invitation by e-mail, but when I enter the password, it tells me its trying to connect, then comes up with the following message :-

A Remote Assistance connection could not be established because the DNS name of the remote computer could not be resolved.

Any advice appreciated

I would use TeamViewer - much simpler. I regularly help friends in New Zealand and New York with their PCs

Thanks Octal, but i've already looked at that page without success.

Thanks Sea Urchin, i'll have a look at your recommendation.

CrossLoop is another easy-to-use remote assistance tool; click here

Your recommendation worked an absolute treat, and I sorted the problem within 10 mins.

Brundle, i've bookmarked yours for future reference.

Thanks again to everyone.
