  1. But our PC must be on, right? I’m thinking what if our computer is off and no one can help us to turn it on.

  2. i have been using VNC for more then 4 years over Lan will check out Logmein. since VNC consumes more memory.

  3. thanks for the tip, will try to connect to my home computer. Lets see :)

  4. Another great remote access tool is Techinline Remote Desktop (www.techinline.com). It is a fraction of the cost of LogMeIn, GoToAssist, and most of the other tools on the market, and as far as using it, there is probably nothing simpler. It requires no installation on either end and all your client has to do is get a 6 digit number which they relay to you. I was a long-time user of LogMeIn Rescue, but that is ridiculously expensive these days

  5. I tried logmein and couple of other services but i found TEAMVIEWER is the best and light on computer. several advantages in team viewer as its cross platform available for mac machines as well as portable version is also available so i always keep it on my USB pen drive and I can use it on any computer. It can use as file transfer unlike logmein free version. Give it a try.

  6. LogMeIn is fantastic. I’ve been using it regularly to access my home PC while I’m out here. It works satisfactorily even on a slow 64Kbps line.

  7. @Nicky, you will require your PC to be on and connected to the Internet in order to connect to it.

  8. Before I used showmypc software from showmypc.com ..but this seems to have so many more options… next time i will surely try this ..

  9. LogMeIn works great. No problems getting through firewalls, routers, etc. but does need some setup. I will look at the others suggested here too, thanks.

  10. I would also recommend Teamviewer. It´s simply the best tool for remote assistance. Offers much more flexibility and user friendliness as any other solution.

    Free to use and no setup or registration is required. Download:http://www.teamviewer.com/download/TeamViewer_Setup.exe

  11. LogMeIn provides remote access software that could work for contractors…..but I found the commands and application to be very confusing. The help center and community got me frustrated, adn so I begam trying other different free versions, but have not found one I am married to yet.

  12. An alternative to LogMeIn and TeamViewer is GoSupportNow (http://www.gosupportnow.com). It’s compatible with both Mac and PC and costs just 19.95 per month.

  13. LogmeIn is the best interface to work on remote PCs. I like it a lot.
