I want to open the event log of a Windows 7 SP1 computer remotely from a Windows XP SP3 computer.
Both computers are on a domain, and the user has domain admin privilages. The firewall is turned off of both computers.
I can connect to the Windows 7 computer with some MMC applets, ie I can remotely connect to the Windows 7 services, and "computer management" allows me to connect to the Windows 7 computer.
When I use XP event viewer to try and connect to the Windows 7 computer it tells me "The Network path is not found". When I use "Computer Management" I can connect to the Windows 7 computer, I can view remote shares under that, local users, local groups, sessions, open files. when I click on "Event Viewer" the error "The Network path is not found" is displayed.
The XP computer can connect to the event log on a windows 2008 r2 server, and the Windows 2008 r2 server can connect to the Windows 7 event log.
I'm at a loss of what else to try. Any help would be much appreciated.
