Remote assistance works 3way? I thought is was only able to access a remote XP machine and nothing more.
I normally hire from community forums, but to be honest the results are inconsistent. Some come highly recommended by the wrong people etc.. I don't really want to spend all the time doing BG checks every time. A supervised environment made a lot more sense than forum hiring for this task.
Xp Remote assistance worked perfect. We connect, I launched putty and gave him control. Then i just sat back and watched
The excersize was painless and i highly recommend this to others, it really makes sense for isolated specialized jobs like this.
This first guy refused to do it using Remote assistance, he seemed to think it was rude of me to even ask! Since i was the one paying for it, it only seemed fair... most employers watch new employees closely to ensure they adhere to company standards, seems to me that is doubly important in the hosting industry. Especially the first hour someone works for you!
