Testing Update: Registry Hacking

I'm really finished testing ESBs, but during the course of writing the article I often need to go back and double check something. I usually don't write at the lab (can't chain smoke around the servers) so I need to take advantage of remote access.
Except I forgot to enable one machine for remote access and I really don't want to run to the lab just to get access. So I did what any good admin does - I hit google.
Sure enough, this great article describes step by step how to remotely modify the registry on a remote machine to enable remote access. A few minutes of playing "find the registry key" and voila!
All Hail Mitch Tulloch and Google. How did we ever do without them?
