    Connecting to home from work software?

    Hi

    Just a quick question

    Is it possible for me to install a VNC or Remote desktop application on my work PC and at my home PC so i can connect to my home computer and do work on there while im at work?

    We are on domain at work but that shouldnt stop any access connecting out should it?

    cheers

    Try internet based tools such as LogMeIn Free or TeamViewer.

    As long as your firewall is set to allow, then web gui solutions like logmein etc can do the job.

    You can even Remote Desktop with an ipad, i do it regularly if im out an about visiting customers.

    Most LA ISPs block the use of these as has been the case in our County.

    I use this N2 - MyEnTunnel - A background SSH tunnel daemon

    Works perfect and quick:

    I've used Live Mesh before now and it's worked quite well.

    Windows Live Mesh requires Windows 7 or Windows Vista (still on xp)

    I have used both LogMeIn & TeamViewer. Both good bits of software. I found TeamViewer better though.

    Oh, that must have changed recently then. I still have it running on my XP desktop at home. :/
