Have you ever experienced that sinking feeling on a Saturday morning? That feeling when you realized you did not send that report out on Friday and that you will have to slog all the way back to the office just hit the send button. Fortunately there is an answer in remote PC access software. Not only does it allow you easy access to your work computer but it basically brings your entire office to your home.
The software is actually very similar to how many so-called spyware programs work. You have a host computer and an access computer. By installing a small piece of software on both computers, the access computer can get complete control over the host. As scary as it may sound, this is actually very safe and a very powerful way to provide total flexibility mobility.
Packages like GoToMyPC is extremely easy to use and was created with the home user in mind. By simply installing the required software on 2 computers, you are able to connect to a host computer (like your computer at work) via a second computer by just using an internet connection and a web browser (like Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
What makes remote access software so powerful it that it can give you total control over the host PC. Its not just about connecting to check your email or to copy file or two across. Its like sitting at your work computer. It replicated your entire system which means that you can use the software on the host computer. You can work, save files, print and even use the network – all from a single remote PC.
I am sure that you can start to see the potential if you are an office worker who has to commute a lot. Since internet connections are virtually without limits these days, it allows you to access your work computer from anywhere in the world and at any time you wish without disrupting anything on your network.
Remote access PC software is becoming more and more advanced and GoToMyPC or Symantec’s PC Anywhere offers a lot of flexibility to both home users and advanced business users.
If its flexibility you are looking for then this is a piece of software well worth investing in. If you are a business owner, then remote PC access software can transform your business and give you and your employees total freedom and a much improved and very powerful way to interact and collaborate.
