Windows 7: Remote Assistance, auto connect?

Remote Assistance, auto connect?

I have a netbook with Windows 7 Starter and a desktop with Windows 7 Pro. I was wondering if there was a way to connect from the netbook to the PC when I am away from home with Remote Assistance. Is there a way for my desktop to auto-accept remote assistance when I am away?

Thank you for your time,

Windows 7
Remote Desktop Connect

Yeah. Use remote desktop connect, not remote assistance. You enable that on the windows professional side (good thing you got "pro", because home premium doesn't have that).

Have just managed to do this on Server 2008 R2 (which means doing it on Windows 7 should be easy enough with minor modifications). Details on my blog at Automatically Accept Windows Remote Assistance Requests | Robin CM's IT Blog
