    I’ve enabled the Offer Remote Assistance GPO, but the Windows 7 Firewall is blocking remote assistance offers. Here’s how to enable Offer Remote Assistance in the Windows Firewall via group policy:

    1. Navigate to the following GPO location:

      Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Windows Firewall with Advanced Security -> Windows Firewall with Advanced Security -> Inbound Rules

    2. Right click on Inbound Rules
    3. Click New Rule…
    4. Select Predefined:
    5. Select Remote Assistance
    6. Click Next
    7. Tick the Remote Assistance rules that you wish to apply
    8. Click Next
    9. Select Allow the connection
    10. Click Finish
