    At 200 a year it doesn't take much for LogMeIn Central to become more cost effective, actually - do you get any Pro accounts included in that or do you have to pay for them at the usual rate on top?

    Guys, seriously, try centrastage. You not only connect to the remote computers but the way you can set up an estate of machines, across different network and then just write a script to run any job without needing to log on to each computer is priceless. They even common apps like plugins ready to auto deploy remotely.

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 think you're looking in the wrong place - Chrome Remote Desktop is developed by Google, not Fusion Labs (whoever they are), so you may have found one of the many other RDP extensions. This is the one we're trying out: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...enigjmpp?hl=en

    Well I asked LogMeIn support whether you can have multiple simultaneous logins with a single Small Business account, and they just closed the case without ever answering the question. Which wasn't much help.

    A handful of us are on LogMeIn Pro for now, with the half price offer, but I think I'll be shifting to RDS Gateway within the year as customer support seems somewhat less than useful.

    How do you get it free? The site only mentions a 30 day trial (from a brief look).

    They offer a free plan with certain restrictions. The 30 day trial is of the all singing, all dancing version. After the trial you get the standard one.
