Enable XP Remote Administration through Firewall

This isn’t going to be detailed…

Get PsExec from SysInternals (http://live.sysinternals.com/psexec.exe)

psexec remoteComputerName cmd /c netsh firewall set service RemoteAdmin

This runs the “netsh” command on the remote system to enable RemoteAdmin through firewall.  I ran into this problem when I couldn’t run the netsh from a 2003 box to control the XP remote system.  Strange.  No time to research it any further right now.
