    Remote Support Software

    I wonder if someone can give me some advice.

    We have multiple sites, some of which are not connected to our main LAN. We also have some staff working from home using a mixture of Mac OSX and Windows.

    Can anyone recommend software that will allow us to remote control computers in this situation for support? My ideal solution would be something like LogMeIn, but that starts to get expensive very quickly.

    We have a team of technicians so it needs to be something that is centrally managable, ideally browser based -- although this is not essential -- and requires minimal input from the user's end.

    Thanks in advance.

    I highly recommend teamviewer, it's and upfront cost and a small renewal year for updates.

    It works out on a per technician / concurrent channel pricing model. So if you had 5 techs and one ever had 2 remoting in its pretty cheap compared to RemoteAssist over 12 months.

    as long as the PCs have Internet access you could use the built in Windows Remote Assistance. This does require a user at the other end.

    Dunno about the macs though.

    Actually it shouldn't if all the PCs are in a domain - you could use GPO to control the settings. I think there is a thread here on this.

    Yes, I read "LAN" as "Domain" so thought they were unmanaged. I have that GPO setup so I can initiate the session it was @AngryTechnician post.
