Default Alternative VNC

I'm trying to help this girl set up her computer properly through VNC. I got her to install the VNC server, disable windows firewall, and enable DMZ for her computer on her router, but I was still unable to connect to her. She can connect to my VNC server just fine. So I think it must be her ISP that is blocking the port.

Are there any reverse-connection vnc server and clients? Since she can connect to me, it would be nice if i could be the server, and her the client, but I would be remotely using her desktop, and not mine.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Msn > Actions > Request Remote Assistance..

Then just accept it.

Remote Access over the net made easy. Prolly easier then installing all this vnc stuff.

Yeah we tried that.... it requires SP2, but she cannot install SP 2 due to an invalid Windows XP key :P

Any ways to use remote assistance without SP2?

Also..

AutoPatcher XP.... and searching "XP SP2 Download" in google and you can put it on any legit/non-legit system.. Unless her key is only for pre-sp2.
