Windows remote task list

Just a note for myself.  I had to list processes of an XP box, remotely from Vista.  This can be done by issuing following command:
tasklist.exe /s [computer name] /u [user name] /p [password]

At first try, I got an error message, "ERROR: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password."  I had to change network securtiy on XP machine:

Administrative Tools -> Local Security Settings -> Local Policies -> Security Options -> Network Access:Sharing and security model for local accounts".  Set this to "Classic - local users and authenticate as themselves".
