"This person is not available..." RRS feed

  • Question

  • Two computers on our local LAN, one Win2003 wi. IE6 the other XP Pro SP2 wi. IE7.  Start a session on XP, sharing the desktop.  Start SharedView on Win2K3, sign in with a second Live ID and attempt to Join the session on the XP machine.

     

    After spinning for a while, Win2K3 comes back and says "This person is not available at this time".  Could this be an IP port issue?  I didn't see anything in the requirements or FAQ about needing to have certain ports open.

  • I just realized what the issue was.  In the lower right corner of the host machine, there is a dialog asking if you wish to grant access to the guest.

     

    I had kind of hoped that sessions could be "auto accepted" so that you could remote control your work PC from home.  Is that feature a possible future addition?
