Windows 7: remote desktop winxp pro to win7 home premium

win 7 home premium
remote desktop winxp pro to win7 home premium

ok i give up, honest i did rtfm, well google, but not finding anything that says definite yes or no, "can i rdc from winxp to win7 home premium?"
i can rdc from the win7 to my xppro, but trying to get back from the xp pro machine to the win7 not connecting
did all the enabling in win 7 system, have all win firewall disabled, using comodo instead and opened up the standard win rdc port in comodo, one thing i noticed the dhcp public ip for the win 7 machine has a subnet, instead of the usual, don't think that should make a diff, but just putting that out there

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Win 7 HP does not include the RDP host, only the client. Need 7 Pro or Ultimate to make use of RDP with the Win 7 machine as host.

win 7 home premium

ok thanks, for clearing that up.
so when you 'allow remote assistance connections....' that is 'special' type of rdp?
looks to be pretty much rdp but somehow there's a parameter that identifies it as the special type of rdp to allow it to work?
if not the above, what is the purpose of having that 'allow' available?
