You must have administrative privileges to connect to the remote computer.
If your current account is not administrative then you may specify administrative login and password in properties of the remote computer in computer list (right click on the remote computer→ Properties→Connect as)
As a rule these parameters are set by default in corporate network because it is impossible to provide remote administrating without these settings. Home user must set these parameters by himself.
You need to open 135-139 ports and all ports above 1024 for incoming and outgoing packets:
Remote Process Explorer works like any other standard Windows administrative tool (such as Event Viewer, Services, Computer Management, etc.) so, if these tools work then Remote Process Explorer will work, too.

Remote Process Explorer uses WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) through DCOM RPC. DCOM does not work through a NAT unless at least one of the NAT'd server machine's network addresses is visible from the client machine. The best way to get this to work is to somehow see that the name of the server is resolvable from the client machine.
We have to do a entry of the server in the host file of our system, so that it can access the information of the requested server.
You have to do the simple steps:
The user does not have remote access to the computer through DCOM.
Please, try the next on the problem PC:
UAC blocks some (not all) WMI counters, resulting in error 80041003: The current user does not have permission to perform the action. You can add the following registry key to disable this feature of UAC.
To disable UAC remote restrictions, follow these steps:
Note: This disables some of the protection provided by UAC. Specifically, any remote access to the server using an administrator security token is automatically elevated with full administrator rights, including access to the root folder.
