Remote window handles

P: n/a
Hi,
I would like to know any info on methods to get a handle on a window on a
remote PC, an example a friend's pc - if he has given me his IP address and I
would like to do a snapshot of a window what methods are there to do this,
also if I wanted to send him a message, I know there are easier ways to do
this, but I would like to control things programmtically through VB.NET and
imagine this shouldn't be too difficult but not too sure where to begin.
Any help would be great.
regards,
Barry.

I pretty sure this would require a lient of some sort on your friends
computer that was listening for calls from your machine on some predefined
port.

I don't believe windows has any method to get a handle for an object on
another machine.

Cheers!
