is it possible to remote INTO a surface running windows rt?
is it possible to remote into a ms surface unit running windows 8 rt either by "remote assist" or an app fr windows store? i am looking to purchase the unit for my mom but would like to know i could remote into the unit to assist her should she have trouble
as i would when he has an issue w/ her laptop. i know the ipad doesnt allow for this so i assume not but thought i'd ask to be sure.

You are all right that the Surface isn't supposed to be able to host remotely, but actually it can. If you go through "Invite someone to connect to your PC and help you, or offer to help someone else" it should work. I'm not sure why it gave you that error
message, but I've tested it myself with 2 Surfaces and it worked like a charm.
