    I get that corporately it isn't, however connecting to your private home pc from school still is free which some may find useful.

    I see on their forums its gone down like a lead balloon, couldn't really expect otherwise though when they pull the plug with Zero warning of it happening, at least I can connect to my home machine with Teamviewer, as thankfully we have a decent RDP setup for me and my line manager and a web portal that lets anyone else in to work online as they need.

    Do you think that with enough bad feelings on the forums they may change their minds? That would be nice

    We use it at our LA for remote support to schools. It works well most of the times but more whenever they have platform updates, it usually breaks one aspect of it for a few days which is rather annoying! You also do have to have an agent installed on the remote device but it is a very powerful tool for the price.

    You can get a free account which allows you to have 5 'managed' devices and unlimited 'OnDemand' devices too so well worth a try to see how you get on.

    Anyone using either GoToMyPC or RemotePC? Any pros and cons for either?

    Right, so, tested the Chrome Remote Desktop extension and that seems alright for the occasional user - fairly straightforward to use, decent quality, only needs a Google account and Chrome. It doesn't have many settings or options at all though, particularly around display - so trying to view my dual 1280x1024 screens from a single 1280x1024 screen was painful and is a no-go. Ok for those with a simple set up in school, but won't be enough for me.

    LogMeIn Pro is looking like a decent option, then, particularly with the 50% off. Does anyone know if there's a restriction on multiple logins to one account though? The small business package (289 pa for 10 computers) is pretty good value compared to the usual subscription, but if only one person can log in to an account at once it's not workable.

    I am also looking at this, both my Head and Business manager have expressed an interest in being able to remote in. Obviously I don't want to buy 2 seperate accounts and the 29 p.a. for the first year is obviously a good enough carrot to dangle (which I'm sure they are banking on). However I would also like to remote in to my school PC and the server, so maybe the 'Pro for power users is an option, if we can share the log in...

    I've always liked LogMeIn but the ludicrously abrupt withdrawal of their free version isn't just annoying (and a PR own goal), it's a bit worrying about them as a business. We're moving to GoToMyPC for now.

    Just looking at this again as an option - do you need a per-device CAL for every remote machine that will be accessed through the gateway, or just one for the RDS Gateway server itself? (MS documentation is clear as mud, as ever)

    per user or per device. per user worked out best for us.

    Do you have anything showing that? Can't see RDS CALs listed in the Core or Enterprise suite.

    The people using remote logins all have their own office machine anyway, so quantity is the same. Which is why I'd hoped that the RDS Gateway counted as the one device and we could do it for the minimal cost of one device CAL
