For starters I'm trying to do this from a Windows 7 box to a Windows 7 box.
I know the simple answer should be to enter \\computername where it says "Select Counters From Computer". Trouble is, every time I do that I get an error message that says "Unable to connect to machine"
I know the machine is out there and accessible, because I can bring up windows explorer and enter \\computername\c$ in the explorer bar and then can browse their c drive. So the machine is out there.
Are there special permissions for perfmon? Is here a service which needs to be running on the remote machine?
