Chapter 7. Controlling Windows III: The Registry > Remote Registry Modification

7.10. Remote Registry Modification

You can modify another computer's Registry, perhaps to repair it or to do some simple kind of remote maintenance, by loading that computer's Registry. Regedit lets you do that simply; just click File/Connect Network Registry, and Regedit then asks for the name of the remote computer. You fill in the name, click OK and, if necessary, Regedit will ask for a user name and password with permissions to access the remote computer's Registry. Once Regedit is satisfied that you're Da Man permission-wise, you get a new icon under your My Computer icon and the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_USERS subtrees of that remote computer. (The others don't show up, as they're all either dynamic or are simply mappings to subsets of the other subtrees.)

NOTE

As with all remote operations, this won't work if the remote server's firewall blocks whatever ports Regedit needs to do remote Registry control.
