Default Can't access event system logs

Is the user from the one machine a member of the Administrators group on the
other? By default, only members of BUILTIN\Administrators can view the
logs. Additionally, to view the security log you must have
SeSecurityPrivilege. Verify that the account you use on machine A has
rights to the log on machine B.

Can anyone help me out with an XP Pro problem? The issue
is, I can't get access to the system tools event logs in
event viewer on a remote xp pro client. In fact, I'm
running two xp clients, and neither of them can access the
other's event logs, although they can access logs on w2k
clients. I can, however, access the services on both
computers, but no event logs. I've tried deleting the logs
and starting again, performed a couple of registry hacks
that enable administrative privileges, all to no avail.
