Perfmon not connecting

    I am trying to run perfmon on my other machine and cannot get it to connect.
    I am trying trace what Sql Server is doing.

    I have the profile set up with the correct user/password. I checked it out
    by just openning up Windows Explorer and connecting using: \\CatSat

    It then then asked for my credentials and I put the same credentials I used
    in my Perfmon Counter Logs windows.

    But I get:

    The CatSat log or alert has not started. Refresh the log or alert list to
    view current status or see the application log for any errors. Some logs
    and alers might require a few minutes to start, expecially if they include
    many counters.

    In my event log I have:

    Invalid user name or password for the CathSatellite log session. This
    session will not be started.

    In my PerfMon, I tried with and without the computer name: CatSat\tjs.

    Is there somethine else I need to set. Perfmon works fine if I run it from
    the local machine.
