Can I use remote assistance (invite) from machine I access with RD



The computer I am at is a windows XP pro at home on the company vpn.
I access a windows xp machine at work with remote desktop connection.
Occassionally I want to let a coworker access that logged in session to help
with a problem. I really do not want to have to give them my logon

Can I use remote assistance and invite them? I tried that but they could
not take control. So I wondered if remote assistance and remote desktop
cannot play together?

If they won't work together, how can I "share" a Remote desktop logged-on
Can any 3rd party tools do this, with or without Remote desktop as the
remote access method?

Perhaps this may be of some help...

....or this...

FWIW, Remote Assistance and Remote Desktop both use TCP Port 3389
(default) so simultaneous sessions probably are not possible. I have
never tried what your trying however.
