I gave someone remote access, am I infected?

Q: I gave someone remote access, am I infected?

Boy do I feel stupid, I was having trouble with figuring out my new outlook email. I got frustrated looking online for information and called what I thought was a Microsoft tech help ctr. The person on the phone told me she would connect me with a tech. thru a chat window at chat123.us. I proceeded to follow prompts and began chat with the tech. the tech stated I was probably infected with third party spyware and my email was hacked.During the process the tech asked to check some things. she pulled up a command prompt window and started looking at my ip address, she also got my start-up window open. When done she said I was infected and showed me where. She said she could fix for a fee. Already suspicious I declined and logged off. I ran my avira free antivirus and it came up clean and my computer seems to be ok but I fear I may have compromized my system. What now?
Thank you, Jim

A: I gave someone remote access, am I infected?

From what I've read online that chat123.us uses LogMeIn Rescue to remotely connect to your
computer.

I went to Symantecs web site for tech support on my virus product and they asked for remote access for my computer and I allowed it. Well it took them 2 hours to fix a 45 minute problem. The person wasnt paying attention to me and I did most of the work fixing my problem and so when the company sent out the survey on tech support I complained and gave out the persons name. Ever since then My computer has lost the cd rom in which i finally got back and then it lost the scanner and I am working on recovering its drivers and such. Now when I email people it take forever to type a line and every time i turn on MSN messenger I have to type in my info even after I have clicked save all information. I have attached my hijack log. and I am aware of silentbug, i have it to watch my childrens activities online lol

Hello.  This account is being used by two people: the PC owner and a neighbor who is trying to help.  The PC owner had a cold call at the beginning of September which claimed to be able to tell that the PC owner was sending infected files.  A week later, the neighbor heard about this and recognized this as a tech support scam.  The neighbor was able to determine that the tech support scammer had installed the free version of AVG AntiVirus, but not much else. 
 
The neighbor attempted to run a few free tools to find out if any malicious software was left behind, but due to problems with saving the logs or virus scanners apparently crashing, the neighbor and the PC owner never found any conclusive results for most of those.  The neighbor was following some advice given on a different forum to the victim of a similar scam (link), so dds logs have already been created, but the neighbor would rather have someone who understands them take a look at them. 
 
The neighbor also ran TDSSKiller, but set to Verify Driver Digital Signature and Detect TDLFS file system.  No actions were taken to remove anything using this tool, but a TDSS file system was detected; we don't know what is on it, yet.
 
The scammers apparently used TeamViewer to access the PC owner's computer, and maybe LogMeIn Rescue.  An empty folder was left for LogMeIn Rescue, but program files remained for TeamViewer.  The neighbor copied... Read more

Hello.  We posted in the Am I Infected? forum previously in this topic.  To recap, there are two people using this account, the PC owner and a neighbor helping out.  The PC owner gave remote access to someone running a tech support scam, the neighbor has been trying to do some scans to figure out what (if any) malicious software may have been left behind and remove it.  One of the performed scans was with TDSSKiller and after we posted the log we were directed to make a topic here.  Logs are still posted in the other topic, but DDS logs were created previously which have not been posted.  We also just ran DDS again, to give you fresher logs to look at, should that make a difference after running SUPERAntiSpyware.  SUPERAntiSpyware found only found tracking cookies, which have been removed.
 
GMER was also suggested by the previous helper, but we have been unable to reach the website to download it, either on the owner's PC or on the neighbor's.   We did not run Malwarebytes AntiMalware a 3rd time (the 2nd time had no detections, the 1st time had maybe 2, but the log wasn't saved before the neighbor could view it).  The other scans which have been attempted were with Microsoft Security Essentials (which found nothing) and an online ESET scan which crashed before its results could be viewed.
 
Here is the newest set of DDS logs.

Hello,
 
My father saw a pop-up that said his computer had an error and was infected with malware.  The pop-up had a phone number to call.  He talked to someone who said he was a certified Microsoft technician and got my dad scared about the Zeus virus.  My dad gave him access to his computer and they did a remote session.
 
The person did not ask for a credit card number, he asked to be mailed a check but wasn't too worried about getting paid. 
 
I know that my dad should not have done what he did  But now I'm trying to clean the computer from what may be compromised.  I am currently running SpyHunter and it has already found 217 threats detected.  It looks like the scary one is HawkEye keylogger and there is also Conduit Search/Toolbar and FindYourMaps Toolbar.  I'm 70% done.  
 
I'd love to know what to do next and if someone could please walk me through all the things I need to make sure and take care of to keep my dad safe.  Thank you for your help and support!

I got a pop up that was loud and wouldn't let me close it saying, "your computer has been infected call Microsoft" and I did because I turned it off and it was still yelling st me when I turned it back on. I gave the tech remote access and he said I had a tiny something trojan virus. Well I didn't fall for paying, got off the phone, held power button down and turned computer off. Am able to use it fine now with no more warning but am I safe after giving the remote access? I was on the phone for about 30 mins while he was going around to different areas in my computer telling me what all of the "problems" were.

A:Gave remote access to a "Microsoft tech support" am I safe?

It wasn't Microsoft, it was a scam.   I suggest you have a look here and create a new post asking for assistance to ensure your computer has not been compromised .

Hello HJT Team Member,

I run a small business out of my home. I have all of my clients personal information. I am not "Techy" at all. We have 6 comupters networked together. All of these are computers are in my home. I recently had to fire an employee. The last straw was, I caught him e-mailing a list of our contacts to a competitor.
Strange things have been happening. !. when I click on my Address Bar, it blinks & bounces around.
2. We will type notes on our files & when we come back to the file. The notes have been changed or are
no longer there.
3. Our system runs very slow now, but we have tons of memory left.

I told a friend, that is a Mortgage Broker about this. He asked if we had anyone set up for "Remote Access" I told him no one was allowed to work remotely. He told me that he had ran into challenges & he went to a site call "bleepingcomputer.com" My friend recommended that I use that site & get help. He also walked me through what he knew about remote accesses. Sure enough, all of our computers had remote access set up on them, including my personal computer, that is located in a separate part of our home.

I am very nevous about all of this, but I haven't got a clue what to do. I would like to make sure no one is able to access our system & that there is no malware infecting our system now. Can someone please HELP.

Have you contacted the authorities about the theft?The slowness could be due to malware or lack of maintenance such as cleanup of temporary files, logs,etc. Remove temporary files, logs, cookies, etc. by using Ccleaner.

I would be happy to remove whatever is on their computer. I have a hard time writing papers on this computer because it clicks on a different part of my wordpad program rather than staying where is suppose to be. When it clicks, it cuts in a different sentence and gets on my nerves. Sometimes it deletes what i type and thats even worse when your typing a paper. Ever since I would have to deal with this I have to repeatedly press ctrl s to save and keep pressing undo command on wordpad for it o go back where i was typing. So this problem is time consuming. Also when I'm loading other programs it points somewhere else on my screen.
I tried to run malewarebytes and as always perform quick scan but its not picking up anything.

Sometimes when you rest your cursor wherever and start typing or using a program, it seems as if it keeps clicking on that spot but im not clicking anything. Majority of the time its clicking and clicking wherever u rest the cursor and clicking at random areas. Sometimes it would randomly move to another spot. I always have to keep the cursor away from everything so it doesn't press anything, but now forces the window to minimize and starts messing w/ u again.

Hello,
 
I want to thank you in advance for taking the time to read my post and help me. I'm new to this forum so if I posted this in the wrong area please let me know; I want to try to abide by the website rules.
 
 
I'm not sure if I'm infected or not but I figured it would be best to ask on here. I'm running a windows 7 PC and I haven't reformatted it since I bought it almost 2 years ago. I'm usually really safe with my PC and I've had AVG Free on it since the day I bought it.
 
Last week my AVG Free Resident shield blocked 5 instances of a Trojan it called MSIL9.AFQI, I checked the AVG virus vault but there was nothing in there. I immediately ran a full computer scan with avg and found nothing. I then downloaded Malwarebytes and ran a full scan and it found nothing. I finally downloaded Rogue Killer and ran a scan, RogueKiller found a few PUM.DNS instances and many instances of a yellow listed: "  [IAT:Addr(Hook.IEAT)] (explorer.exe) kernel32!TerminateProcess : Unknown @ 0x80000000 " I believe there was over 100 of these.
 
I installed a free premium trail version of Emsisoft Anti-malware and un-installed my avg since I lost confidence in it.
 
I've ran Malwarebytes, Emsisoft anti-malware and Rogue killer every day since avg found the infection and I still keep seeing the same results from RogueKiller. Malwarebytes and Emsisoft scans always come out clean.

Please follow the instructions in the Malware Removal and Log Section Preparation Guide starting at Step 6.
If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next.
In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running FRST which will create two logs.
When you have done that, post your logs in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team.Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log(s) along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. If you cannot produce any of the required logs...start the new topic anyway. Explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happened when you tried to create them. A member of the Malware Removal Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer.
After doing this, please reply back in this thread with a link to the new topic so we can close this one.
 
DO NOT bump your new topic. Wait for a response from one of the Team Members.

Recently my system kept having trouble loading common pages, and then slowed down to a crawl.
 
I installed Iobit ASC Free Version and ran scans, and it definitely improved performance. I also run Norton Internet Security. I used Iobit to update all my drivers. 
 
but after things improved, that's when the hard drive started groaning intermittently. I ran a deep Defrag using Autologics Defrag, and Optimizer. 
 
The groaning has subsided for now, but I have a funny feeling something is just hiding and will return...because I am seeing some pop up spam that I suspect may have come in with the Iobit, even though I downloaded from CNET and thought it a safe source.
 
One scan required a reboot and that is usually serious in my experience, and rare for this computer too.
 
Any help greatly appreciated. Just want to trouble shoot this as a preventative before it gets worse...
 
Thanks!

Updated PCs running Trend Micro's Antivirus on Windows can be hijacked, infected with malware, or wiped clean by any website, thanks to a vulnerability in the security software.
The design blunders were discovered by Google Project Zero bod Tavis Ormandy. A patch is now available to address the remote-code execution flaw, so Trend Micro users should update their software as soon as possible.
Ormandy, who has been auditing widely used security packages, analyzed a component in Trend's AV software dubbed the Password Manager. He found that multiple HTTP RPC ports for handling API requests were accessible.
"It took about 30 seconds to spot one that permits arbitrary command execution, openUrlInDefaultBrowser, which eventually maps to ShellExecute()," he wrote in a bug report to Trend.
This means that any webpage visited by a victim could run a script that uses Trend Micro's AV to run commands directly on the machine – such as RD C:\ /S /Q to wipe the system drive, or commands to download and install malware. As another example, this code uninstalls Trend Micro's security software on a PC without the owner's knowledge or consent.
 

Article
 
The software has been patched via an update but I am surprised Trend Micro let this get through.

A:Trend Micro AV gave any website command-line access to Windows PCs

Not surprised of this at all. Hell, they don't even include signature based detections for Cryptoware if you're not on the latest version of their product and they don't warn you at all about it. It's when you directly ask them that they finally answer. Seriously, TrendMicro isn't worth using at all, at home like at work.

I asked a question in another thread wanting to know if there were any good free alternatives to programs PCAnywhere or GoToMyPC. Boy did I ever get more than I expected in TeamViewer that EAFiedler suggested.

Now I have a technical question about how TeamViewer works. It connects to remote systems across the internet not by an IP number that I enter but rather by an arbitrary nine-digit number assigned to the system when the program is set up. It connects so quickly that I know it cannot be scanning every IP address on the 'net looking for a TeamViewer connection at every one of them. So, I have deduced that there must be a server out there somewhere that stores TeamViewer information.

Does anyone know enough about this to confirm this and/or explain it to me somewhat?

Next question: What about security? Are there any security issues I should be concerned about, other than the obvious, of course?

Being very concrete, as well as, somewhat dull concerning computers, I find this hard to believe. Could someone, in layman's terms, tell me the circumstances needed that would allow a hacker to take control of someone's system when a necessary service is turned off ??

Hello All

I have a windows server 2008 and I want to install Remote Access/VPN role on it. Unfortunately there is confilict between Remote Desktop and VPN Server role in Windows Server and when enable VPN Server role, Remote Desktop is disabled and vice versa unless you have 2 NICs and enable each on separate NIC.

Do you know a way to keep both enabled and functional on the same NIC.

Any help is appreciated.

Hiya

This step-by-step guide describes how to configure remote access policies through the Routing and Remote Access snap-in when Routing and Remote Access is configured to use a Windows authentication provider and through the Internet Authentication Service (IAS) snap-in when Routing and Remote Access is configured to use a Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) authentication provider. This guide offers only step-by-step procedures for configuring remote access policies, not strategies for implementing remote access connectivity. It is intended for administrators who have experience managing the remote access features of Microsoft® Windows Server™ 2003 operating systems.

I've heard a lot about "remote access" on a computer, but i'm not quite clear on the reasons/advantages of using it. I've used a few Unix shells in my day, and i've heard that that is considered remote access of a computer.

I have somewhat of a n00b question... I have a box at NCSU, and a box at home. I was wondering if there was a way i could remote access my box and home, and what exactly that would entail? What would i be able to do? Do the 2 boxes have to be on the same network? Can i access the harddrive of my remote box? Can i install/download files USING the remote box (i'm behind a firewall at NCSU)?

Both boxes are running the exact same windows XP Sp2 systems and pretty much the same configs. Any information/sites you could give me relating to the topic would be much appreciated.

That would require some form of network path as well as permissions to get past firewall and access the system.

Hi,
I want to access my work data remotely.

My work is on ADSL with 4 computers on a workgroup. DHCP server automatic 192.168.0.100 (PC1) ... 192.168.0.103 (PC4)

My home setup is almost exactly the same, with a different workgroup name and different computer names.

I have managed to remotely connect over the workgroup by entering the PC name at home and of the ip address assigned by my router (192.168.x.y). I was wondering if I could connect from one computer on my home network to another one over the internet back to the same network by entering an IP address not of the 192.168.0.x

Now I realise this is probably not possible because I am trying to contact the same IP address provided by my ISP and it is probably asking for a connection while it is trying to recieve one. So I guess I am interested in how I can connect from one computer at home to a particular computer at work with the above setups.
 

A:Remote Access XP Pro

Almost right.... What you need to do is the following.

Take your PC's and assign Static IP's (you'll see why in the next steps)
Go to your Router and forward port 3389 to the PC you want to remote control into.
Then you connect to your PC using your WAN IP or if you have a dynamic WAN IP you may want to use something like dyndns.com to give you a stable connection method.

If you want to put more machines to be remote controlled remotely do the following -
Take your PC's and assign Static IP's (different last octet from the one above)
Also on the specific PC edit the registry and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\TerminalServer\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\PortNumber edit it and change the port from 3389 to another port.
Go to your Router and forward the port you picked in the last step to the PC's IP that you just hardcoded (different from the first one).
In order to connect from the outside the LAN your on has to have those specific ports open. Then to connect into The 3389 PC you just type in your WAN IP or your dns name. If you want to connect into any of the others you type in your WAN IPort.

I.E.
X.X.X.X - in your remote desktop box will give you your first PC
X.X.X.X:3390 - would give you your second box
and so fourth.

That is for Windows 7, but Vista is the same.

Unless you have that enabled, nobody can log in remotely using built-in tools. If it is enabled, they still need your username and password to get past your logon screen. That is why it is a good idea to have a password.

A computer guy friend paid for me to have Malwarebytes (the paid version) on my computer. Awhile later, he fixed my computer. It wouldn't even turn on. He was a huge help. But he decided to end our friendship. One night the mouse had a life of its own: just for 15? secs., but after that my Malwarebytes wasn't working, and I had no protection. It was later I learned to turn off remote access. Remote access could have been open due to me calling a company who did their job via remote acce.ss.

When he fixed my computer, at one point he used a USB to get email working as it was easier than a disc. He showed me it ( to prove he wasn't taking stuff off my computer) and told me it had a program on it he was using for my computer.

I never noticed anything until the night it seemed there was another mouse arrow moving on my computer. My questions:

1) do you think he had remote access?

2) if so, how much of what I did on my computer could he see?

3) if so, could he see the things I internet searched?

A:Remote Access, help PLEASE

Are you able to get from your work PC to your home PC? As long as you have the port forwarded properly on your home network, that portion should allow you to do half of what you want.

As for the other half, how do you have the Linksys and D-Link routers set up at work? Are both performing NAT, or is the D-Link acting as more of a bridge?

You should only need to configure the port forwarding on the router that is doing NAT. However, if both routers are doing NAT, then I'm not completely certain it can do what you want.

She doesn't know much about them, mostly Internet and games for kids but when there is simple problems such as connecting to the Internet and finding or moving files or downloading emails that she cannot figure out I would like to be able to just look at it and see if I can fix it easily. I am not sure where to look.

An elderly friend of mine runs a business out of her house and when she was away, her partner came to her house and installed something on her computer so she could monitor what she was doing from her own computer. I'm assuming it's something like 'Go to my pc' etc.
She's running windows xp and isn't sure what to do. Before I look at her computer I wanted to ask for opinions in case there is some kind of stealth software installed that would be difficult to find and uninstall.

Thanks,

Dave

Hello,

I thought i had a hijacked computer and so i reformatted. a couple of days later, i found that i was not able to access my own firewall settings and that, removing my backup drive (no operating system) caused symantec corporate to fail (it was looking for files it couldnt find. this was strange, so i took out both of those drives and put in another and formatted and installed xp and norton corporate edition again. now i am wondering if there is a way for the guy who gave me the corporate edition to be on my computer, hiding data loggers and bypassing my settings by way of some remote administration (he is a GIS guy for a company and manages their server). maybe something else is happening, i dont know. I can put the other drives in at another time and run hijack and startup
I ran hijack this and startuplist on the current hard drive. Is there anything there to worry about?

Hi all,

I was wondering if someone could tell me or walk me through what I need to do to check my email at work while I will be out of town. The work server is a windows 98se machine with a DSL connection. I will have a laptop with windows XP. Does the server need to be set up with RAS? What do I need to do to the laptop? Is this even possible?
Thanks in advance for all your help.

You could use something like UltraVNC to provide remote console control of your office computer. That's how I do it.

I am VERY inexperienced with remote access and have many questions. Here is what I am looking to do.

There are 5 users that I want to be able to have access to our server while they are on the road. I want to be able to make it secure enough to only allow them access to certain files and folders on our server, but not the whole server. What do you recommend I do to allow for this? Do I need to buy a router or modem or soemthing that they can dial into?

Just FYI: My server is running win2k server. I have cable broadband internet right now.

Thanks

I am not sure if I am in the right category or not for this question...but I would like to know about setting up other PCs so that I can remotely access them when I am away and help fix problems.

My parents drive me completely batty with their constant over the phone computer questions. It would make my life so much easier if I was able to just tap into their machine and show them what they want to know, or to check and see what the problem is. But I am not really at all familiar with how I can go about doing that...

My own personal PC is running windows 7 pro, and their PCs are running Windows Xp pro, Vista home premium, and windows 7 pro. (three different PCs) Their computers are not on any domains, just a simple basic home network for internet purposes. Nothing fancy.

How difficult or easy would it be for me to set this up? I generally turn off all avenues of remote access (like remote registry etc) so I know I would need to make the various services and such enabled again. I also figure that I may need to set up their router to allow such connections as well (right?) But beyond that, I am kind of clueless. I tried searching online, but a lot of the stuff I found talked about being on a domain, which is not applicable here.

Any help would be fabulous and much appreciated!!

The obvious question is, have you contacted him and asked him what he installed?

Is there a reason to believe that he would put some type of "maware" on it?

I would think most legit programs will show up in control panel under add/remove programs.

I need some help using a remote access program (open to new programs, too). My friend who lives across the country's laptop needs help, and as it's easier for me to take control and just get everything done, I need some help with using a remote access program... It seems like TeamViewer lags out, since she can see what I open, but 10 minutes later, I still can't see firefox...

A:Remote Access Help

Odds are not in your favor here, if TeamViewer is timing out then more than likely any or all of the remote control tools will timeout.

If the user on the laptop dies not need to see what you are doing, you could try a microsoft direct connection, and then try to repair the laptops issue.

Do this by: Clicking Start, Run, type in MSTSC and click ok. Then whe prompted for a computer name, you will need to know the IP address of the laptop, and a user name and password. Hope this helps!

I was checking online to see ways of how someone could remotely access my computer. Doing the search I quickly read something about new technology that would allow the use of "sound waves" so that someone could possibly see what is on you computer screen. Are you familiar with any such technology? My computer is making strange high pitched noices that sound like they could be some type of beacon signal...its not the fan or 2 wires rubbing together had a tech guy look at that...unfortunately he could not even hear the noise but his hearing may be bad...for me its loud and quite annoying. I know some one has remote access to my computer but it doesnt seem like its through the traditional means. Thanks for you help.

"The client could not connect to the remote computer. Remote connections might not be enabled or the computer might be too busy to accept new connections. It is also possible that network problems are preventing your connection. Please try your connection again later. If the problem continues to occur, contact your administrator."

When I spoke to my IT person, they said to got to the remote tab and check off both boxes, but no luck. They said they were able to access my work computer from their laptop so the issue was definitely with my computer at home.

Hi All,

I have a desktop running XP Pro at home with a broadband internet connection, this is my only ISP, the broadband connection Adelphia.

I would like to use my laptop, which is running XP Home, from work to connect to my desktop at home useing a dial up modem.
so I may surf the internet from work.

Can I do this if my ISP doesnt support dialup modem connections? If I can will you please advise me on the way to set it up. Should I use Netmeeting? I want to try and avoid any 3rd party applications if I can. TIA John
 

A:XP Remote Access

I think you'd be MUCH happier with the results of just obtaining a cheap ISP to dial directly. For instance, www.access4free.com is a maximum of $10/mo for unlimited Internet access, and in months you use 10 hours or less, it is free! Due to the design of v.90/v.92 modems, the absolute maximum speed connection you'll get between two stand-alone modems is 33kbits, so surfing directly to a dial-up ISP will also be significantly faster.

Hi,

Im using Vista premium at home and I need to connect to a collegue's PC which is running xp pro in the office so that I can control his desktop. What is the easiest way of doing this? I know of the Remote Desktop Connection in my vista but do not know how to set it up, or if it is possible.
 

A:Remote Access

To use Remote Desktop the XP Pro machine has to be set to allow RD, and to allow you (user account) to login, and the account to be logged into has to have a password, and holes (ports) have to be opened in any 3rd party firewall or maybe a router (which would imply port forwarding also). Then all you need is the (public) IP address of the XP Pro.

I am helping support the network of a small local company, they are running Windows 2000 server SP4 with XP Pro clients. The owner has a XP Pro PC at home and would like to be able to connect to the internal network and work just as if he was at the office. At home he has a cable connection with a dynamic IP and the office has a DSL connection with a dynamic IP. The server at the office is running DHCP with a 192.168... address scheme, it has only one NIC, the server and the DSL router plug directly into a 16-port Linksys switch. What would be the best and most affordable way to setup access from the home PC? I know there is VPN functions built-in to both 2000 and XP, should I use that. Or is a seperate VPN appliance or software a better way to go??

BTW, I just found these forums and they look great. Looks like I'll be able to find lots of help here, and hopefully help out a little too.

Thanks
 

A:Help with VPN or Remote Access

assuming the routers are pptp passthrough, you can setup VPN on the server. this may help. quoted from www.chicagotech.net.

How to configure W2K server as VPN server

To setup a Windows 2000 server for VPN, open Routing and Remote Access console in the Administrative Tools folder, right-click the server and then click Configure and Enable Routing and Remote Access>Virtual private network [VPN] server. Click Next if TCP/IP is only protocol you will use. Select a connection you will connect to on the Internet Connection. You will have two options to assign IP to VPN clients. The default is Automatically. It is recommended to configure the server to assign client addresses from a static address pool, rather than assigning addresses from a DHCP server. If you configure RAS to assign client addresses from a static address pool, clients inherit the DNS and WINS settings from the RAS server. If your RAS server can browse the network, clients should also be able to browse the network with the same settings. If you prefer DHCP, verify that DHCP scope option 44 (WINS/NetBIOS name server) points to the WINS server and scope option 6 shows the address of your DNS server. When you don't define these options, you almost guarantee problems with client browsing. Finally, you can select using RADIUS or not.

NOTE: If VPN traffic is traveling through a router or firewall, configure the router or firewall to pass PPTP (TCP Port 1723 and IP Protocol ID 47 [GRE - Generic Routing Encapsu... Read more

A:remote access on a LAN (XP)

I am not quite sure as to meaning you intend "remote access" to have, it can mean quite different things to different people!

But if file sharing, then ...
For file sharing you need File and Printer sharing enabled on each PC. Then to share specific folders if you do "Properties" on the folder you should be offered a Sharing tab from where you can enable the sharing of that folder. From Explorer you should be able to see which folders are enabled for sharing as they will have a little hand on the lower left corner of the folder.

Then you access the files on one PC from another using Explorer in the usual way. Also allows you to share the CD drive on one PC with any of the others, share a printer connected to one PC with all the networked PCs, that type of thing.

Just stick "file and printer sharing" in the XP help pages and you will get step-by-step directions to setting up and using the facility.

Hello:

With only two that is no problem. Now we want to add a couple more databases from other groups so now we would need to be able to have more then one access at a time. Is there any relatively inexpensive way of doing that?

Thanks for any input

A:Remote Access

setup up a vpn server and share your databases out over the lan.
your clients could vpn in and access the shares instead of remoting in to the pc.
it would even increase security between databases.
