    How do I access a snap-in of another pc from my own pc within the same
    workgroup. What needs to be changed or configured as I got "Access is
    denied, you don't have access rights to the service? Thanks.

    There is no domain, only a workgroup environment. I opened up a mmc, and let
    say I want to add a snap-in (say, disk management, or group policy), you
    then get to choose a local computer or a remote computer in the diaglog box
    once you pick your snap-in. The error pops up when I tried to access the
    snap-in on another computer. Thanks.

  3. My answer was wrong. Sorry.

    I am guessing you don't have administrative rights to the computer you are
    trying to connect to.
    Searching the MS Support site, there seems to be a lot of errors like this
    when people are trying to connect to NT4 with IIS.

    Have you added you user profile to the Administrators group on the remote

    Does this error occur for any SnapIn that you wish to use to control remote
    machines? If so, it's definitely security.
