Remote access?

b.j.nichols, Mar 26, 11:32pm
I am needing to remotely access my work computer from home, mainly just reading files and getting into programs to view the information. What do I need to use! a VPN or something else!. I looked on the net and it appears you have to pay for a VPN! Both work and home computers are connected to broadband, the work system is running win7 and the home is Vista. Any ideas/ help would be appreciated.

Ammyadmin
Vnc
Logmein
And many others

LogMeIn.com is brilliant. I used it for several months while I was overseas.Even has remote Wake On LAN so you can reboot remotely. The free version also lets you access your PC from iPad or iphones.

Does your work place have a solution for this at all! Some places don't like people accessing their work pc from home for risk management reasons.

Definitely TEAM VIEWER. Great to use.

you can get a free static ip if you are on telecom total home then use the built in windows remote desktop which is a great way if you have it set up

That is 100% unsecure unless you have a VPN tunnel in place.

LogMeIn and TeamViewer are both good. Only because I know how to use them
