I use logmein.com for this.
Can i use tightvnc to remote control my owrk pc from home. Basically want to set it up so i can work from home?
Is it easy? Does it matter if we have a proxy setting in school?
I use logmein.com for this.
The answer is technically yes... However I reckon Logmein https://secure.logmein.com/home.asp?lang=en Will work better for you and from experience it's easier to setup (you don't have to tweak as many firewall rules, etc).
The answer to the proxy question is pretty much it depends, usually proxies only apply to outgoing connections but it depends how your "proxy" is implemented.
Another vote for LogMeIn - used by some of our teaching staff too!! (with our approval).
I was using logmein.com until it started giving me some certification error and then wouldn't get on the website at all.
Did any of you come across this?
Just update the client widget.
VNC / TightVNC will work - you need to forward the relevant ports though - 5800 & 5900.
I have an encrypted VNC session between going between the school and my network at home.
The DynDNS I setup also helps lots on my home network.
How do i forward the relevant ports? Is that done on the server? I have only installed tightvnc on one machine and not the server?
how do i update the client widget? I check for updates and it tells me that the software is up to date? On my system tray the logmein icon has a red cross on it and says its enabled but offline!!!
Check your web proxy software. It sounds like it might be blocking logmein from connecting.
we use netsweeper and i have added the address on there but this doesnt make any difference. Logmein still has a red cross on it!!! The wierd thing is i set it up and was working for few weeks but recently it shows this certification error and i cant connect any more!!!
I use logmein, personal prefrence
I used UltraVNC to get to my work computer from home or vice versa. I do have to first connect to my works VPN to remote my workstation in the office. Work to home requires only have VNC installed.
Any more ideas how to remote to other servers, pm me if necessary.
Logmein blocked by our broadband web filtering service (no chance of getting them to unblock it) and VNC no go as LEA IT services will not open up the ports for me to access my other primaries servers. Have got VPN access to the servers from home but most of the calls where I would need to check the servers would be during the daytime.
any remote control software will do it -- but you need to make sure ports are unblocked to allow traffic over them, you do this at your proxy and/or may need ports forwarded at your router. ALSO: You may run into trouble if you're a school like us and have RM blocking ports out too, which will require you to get them to allow the ports through for you (at a cost).
