controlling another computer - Page 2

logmein free would be the easiest for you to use. The end user doesn't have to do a thing other than sit there while you remote in. Setup is as easy as going to the website and creating an account, then clicking add a PC. No other setup necessary.

I use this to support my best friend 15 miles away, my mom and dad 10miles away, my little sister 4hr drive away, and older sister/brother in law 3,000 miles away.

With team viewer the user on the other end has to give you their session number and pw which can be a pain in the butt. VNC programs you will either have to setup a hosting name such as no-ip or something to that effect or have the end user go to an ip website such as ipchicken.com along with forwarding ports in routers. So effectively you have more setup or you have to rely on the end user more.

I have moved to teamviewer. It is free for personal use, and you can set it up with a static password.

Definitely recommend Teamviewer.. excellent app and you can even use it when you are not at your own computer.. just login to the website and all of the computers that you have listed for remote control are made available from the website. And even if they aren't in your list you can just enter the ID and password of the computer you are trying to get into and voila.. access from anywhere you have an internet connection.

Another option is www.logmein.com you can do up to 5 machnes for free and its simple, you can even power on machines with it.

I used to use VNC however when monitoring my bots in mmo's i couldnt view the 3d screens in the rear, so i started to use this and it worked perfectly.
They limit you now? I have like 20 on my account, but then again my account is probably as old as they are.

team viewer is great i use it and will highly recommend it. You can make it stealthy with options make a free account that you can add all the stuff to so you can get access with one click. its easy to use and you can transfer files back and forth from either end without the other side having to do anything. Its a great easy program and if you need help with configuration send me a pm

/thread

edit: plus you can use it on an iphone or ipod touch lol impress all your friends with remote accesss from your ipod = total win
