Remote Computer Operation

Recommended Posts

Hi John

There is a relatively new way of controlling remote PC's, a company I work with use it for support purposes so I guess it must work well and there is a free version for private use.

TeamViewer - Free Remote Access and Remote Desktop Sharing over the Internet

I have downloaded it but haven't got around to trying it yet.

The reason I would use it to sort out my wife's PC while I was at work!

The ability to do this is built into Windows (if that's what you're using). Go to Start then Click on Run and type mstsc and press return. You then either need the name of the pc you want to control or it's ip address.

This will work if the pc you're trying to remote is on your network. If you're trying to do this over the Internet then either teamviewer or logmein (which is also free). These will work locally as well but will be slowed down by the speed of your web connection.

If you want any more info on this let me know ...
