Hosting dss on XP Home RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a XP-home based computer onboard a robot.  The computer has everything installed and works fine to run my service locally.  My problem is that I want to be able to connect to this computer via an ad-hoc wireless network (also working).  I know that a bunch of networking services are not available in XP-home, such as remote desktop.  Everytime I try to connect to the dss service (http://169.254.131.146:50000) it asks me for a username and password. 
    I have provided the NT account passwords, but to no avail.  Is this an XP home issue?  Maybe just a deployment issue?

  • Authentication may fail if the user account that runs the DssHost (on your XP home) hasn't set a password. I don't know if it's possible to set a password on XP Home, but you should try this.
    When the password is set, you should be able to connect to DssHost with full login i.e:

    MACHINENAME\Username
    Password
