Default Remote assistance does not work

Alright so Im trying to get Remote Desktop to work from Windows Live Messenger.

But i still keep on getting the same error message:

"A Remote Assistance connection could not be established. You may want to check for network issues or determine if the invitation expired or was canceled by the person who sent it."

So naturally, I checked out the Microsoft Support Site:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/899862

it said to

"To verify that the RDP-TCP listener is running on a particular novice computer, follow these steps: 1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
2. At the command prompt, type qwinsta. If the RDP-TCP listener is running, you receive the following output:
rdp-tcp 65536 Listen rdpwd"

However, I do not receieve the rdp-tcp 65536 rdpwd message when i type in Qwisnta.

I already tried all that dumb stuff with the fire wall and port 3389 and making it accept remoke desktop connections. So I dont konw whats left.

Regards,

DummyTron

This may be reaching, but it may be a typo on your part. IF you typed exactly as in your post, that is the problem.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.
