    Anyone happen to know what port(s) you'd need to open to use Remote
    Assistance through a (non-Windows) firewall?

    How about Remote Desktop?

  2. The ports should be the same. Can't you just add the Remote Desktop/Remote
    Assistance applications to the firewall instead?

    Yeah, in Windows Firewall you can to that. I'm just wondering if I had some
    other firewall up, what ports would I need to open?

    Whichever 3rd party software firewall you used would automatically open the
    correct ports once you have given the program that needs to connect
    permission to do so in said firewall.

    Do you have TS installed or something? I can't connect to/from my XP laptop.
    I always get an error message about no Terminal Server. (Though this laptop
    also have the PX Home Edition installed, which I'm sure doesn't help).
