Remote user not able to type when connected

A friend can successfully log into my computer. She can navigate around and open programs but she can't type in any program or dialog box.

I have XP Media Center Edition w/ sp2 and she has XP Home Edition w/ sp2.

What could be causing my friend not to type in any program or dialog box?

Thank you for looking.

Re: Remote user not able to type when connected

I have the same issue - and first thought it was connected with the firewall (ZoneAlarm).

However after uninstalling ZoneAlarm and restarting the PC, I was still not able to type / use my keyboard to type on my friends PC.

 

Could it be that it is blocked when using LogMeIn Free? Any ideas or advice for both of us?

 

Thanks

Re: Remote user not able to type when connected

I'm dealing with a similar issue, and also using XP.  If I connect using Firefox or MSIE, I can use the keyboard and move the mouse, but I can't click with the mouse.  If I connect using Google Chrome, I can click with the mouse, but can't type.

 

Firefox keeps prompting me for an add-on but never installs it.  Google Chrome keeps telling me to adjust my settings to allow java and activex, but nothing happens when I click on the wrench icon.

Re: Remote user not able to type when connected

I am having the same problem which started a couple of weeks ago. I have two computers that I remote to and have had no problems up until the last 2 weeks or so. My mouse movements work fine but if I send any keystokes nothing happens on the remote computer.

I am using LMI free on WinXP with all of the lastest updates along with Mozilla Firefox. I have disabled ZoneAlarm but that didn't resolve the problem.

 

 

Any help on this matter would be greatly appriciated.
