What is the fastest remote desktop software for graphics work?

Q: What is the fastest remote desktop software for graphics work?

Hey guys

I use Logmein, and PC Anywhere remote software for remoting my PCs between 2 homes. But I find them too slow when remoting software that has moderate graphics load.

I want to establish a connection between my 2 sites (London and Devon) that will give me the fastest remote access, and I dont care about what it cost as long as its not ridiculous!

If it helps to buy 2 routers with built in VPN capabilities I will buy them to create a VPN tunnel, if this will improve remote access speeds.

I dont mind paying for the remote software either.

So what would be the best solution - at reasonable cost?

After A little research, I have read that RDP is the quickest for when remoting graphics intensive programs. But these articles were dated a few years, is RDP still the quickest? One of my PC is Windows 7 Home, shall I upgrade it to Professional if I want it to be a RDP host? Or is their seperate RDP software available that I can install instead of forking out ?100 for Windows 7 Professional upgrade? If using RDP on Windows 7 Prof is the fastest then I will buy the upgrade.

And if creating the VPN tunnel will improve speeds further, then I pose that as another question in the Network threads

Cheers

Preferred Solution: What is the fastest remote desktop software for graphics work?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

It seems, the graphics card of the host plays a part in speed of graphics refresh during remote sessions. Something to do with rasterizing. The pc host had on board graphics and scores just 3.4 in the Windows Experience index performance guage in Windows 7. So perhaps I need to also buy a dedicated graphics card.

I saw fairly similar topics posted but some of them referred to playing video games via remote desktop. I was interested in playing video from my PC via another PC using a remote desktop program.

I have windows xp home edition on both of my computers, and they do have a remote desktop program, but ive found out that windows xp pro actually has a better version of it that will actually work. I cant get the windows xp home version of it to work. Is there anyone that knows of a free remote desktop program, or if someone would be able to send the windows xp pro version of the remote desktop program.

A:Free Remote Desktop Program, or how to get windows remote desktop to work

XP Home has "Remote Assistance", while XP Pro has both "Remote Desktop", as well as "Remote assistance". You can download from Microsoft, a Remote Desktop "add on" which will enable your computer to become the "client" but not the "server".

can you provide some details about what you've done to get "remote assistance " up and running?

A:HP Remote Graphics Software

HP RGS does have a Game Mode you can read about in the user guide at www.hp.com/go/rgs.   This is what it says: Game Mode lets you lock the cursor inside the remote display window to perform functions that rely on relative cursor movements, such as 3D environment interaction, If Game Mode is not enabled, these types of interactions might cause erratic cursor behavior. The default state of Game Mode (enabled or disabled) can be set using the RGS Receiver ConfiJuratLon tool, and Game Mode can be toggled on and off while RGS Receiver is in Setup Mode by pressing the G key

Id highly recomend teamviwer.
TeamViewer Download

You download the Full version and they download the quick support version just underneath.
The quick version only allows some one with the full version(you) to access there computer (with the ID and Passwrod of course) and once it closes it leaves nothing behind except the .exe file and (i think) a log.
Neither of which will be easily available,they will have to be looked for.

Hiya

The downloadable Remote Desktop Web Connection ActiveX control provides most of the same functionality as the full Remote Desktop Connection software; however, the Remote Desktop Web Connection is designed to deliver this functionality over the Web. The Web package Setup program installs the downloadable ActiveX control and sample Web page on a server running Internet Information Services (IIS) 4.0 or later

System Requirements
This package may be applied to the following:

All Windows 2000 platforms
Windows NTŪ Server 4.0
Windows NT Server 4.0 Enterprise Edition
Windows NT Server 4.0 Terminal Server Edition
Important: The Remote Desktop Web Connection download package must be installed on a computer running Internet Information Services (IIS) version 4.0 or later. This dependency applies to the Web server only. Users can download the control and view the Web pages from any supported Web browser (Windows 32-bit versions of Internet Explorer 5.x or higher).

I have 4 computers in my LAN, they share the same workgroup. I am having a problem with a Windows XP Professional SP2 machine. I enabled remote desktop and i cannot connect to it from another computer.
When i try to connect from another computer, i first type in the IP or NetBios name of the computer in question. I get a prompt to enter credentials (username and password). Next i get a prompt because the computer i am trying to connect from is Windows Vista (i tried from another XP computer and it didn't work there eihter), which basically says that it can't verify the identity of the computer and i click yes to continue. After that, the prompt disappears and the Computer input box and the Connect, Help and Options >> buttons in the remote desktop client are greyed out for about 2 seconds, then it just becomes editable\clickable and it doesn't connect, neither does it give any error message. I just can't connect to the remote machine. From the problematic machine i can connect to other machines in my network via remote desktop and it works fine.

Ideally I'm trying to get remote desktop to work on my new phone (HTC Touch Diamond) but for troubleshooting purposes I'm going to use my laptop.

I'm on a LAN behind a common D-LINK router, with a 192.168.0.X /24 subnet
Network connectivity is working great, all the computers on the LAN can use windows file sharing perfectly. So basic network connectivity is not an issue.

My desktop on connected via the LAN adapter, and the notebook via the built in wireless. The phone also uses the wifi.

I created a new account with a password, and enabled Remote Desktop in the [Remote] tab of the System Properties. I've, of course, added the user I created in the "select remote users" window.

When I try the Remote Desktop Connection on my laptop it says "connecting..." for a short moment then blinks off. No error messages or anything. Just nothing. Same thing happends on my phone (when the phone is on the wifi network of course).

All pings work fine, and i've disabled ALL firewalls (inc. windows built in firewall)

Ive recently installed SP3 on the desktop machine, and its all up to date with windows updates.

Does anybody have any ideas what I could be missing here?

I have a Win 8.1 Pro X64 system that I'm trying to RDT (remote Desktop) to but can't seem to make it work. I have it working fine to my Win 7 Pro X64 system sitting right next to it.

I've setup Port Forwarding in the Router the same as it's set for the Win 7 system, just using a different port. When I then try to make a RDT connection to it, it never connects. I've tried it from within my home LAN (192.168.1.x) and from a public network. Both work correctly to the Win 7 Pro X64 system but not to the Win 8.1 Pro X64 system.

Looking for some way to debug this and see what it going wrong.

Both machines have the Windows Firewall setup to Pass Remote Desktop and Remote Desktop Connection.
As I said, the router port forwarding is setup the same for both, just using different ports (3390 for W7 and 33390 for W8).

All ideas greatly appreciated.


Hmmm, I wonder what would happen if I made the W8 system use 3390 (the default port for RDT) and 33390 for the W7 system? Guess I'll give that a try.

and it comes back wrong... He does have Remote desktop enabled

A:I can't get Remote desktop connection to work

When he sends you the Login Invite and then restarts the Remote desktop it changes the Details and password, He needs to leave it on and then do it,

Also, I never use this feature its slow and annoying. Goto http://www.logmein.com and create a account and send him a deployment link. Once installed on his/her PC you can get in when ever you want belonging that its enabled on there PC.

Hi everybody...I've noticed quite a few problems with this around here, but my situation is far less complex. See I have a Surface Pro that I'm trying to use to remote access my desktop. My desktop is running Win Professional and has Norton 360 on it for
security. I'm just running over my home network at the moment so I'm operating within the same WLAN. When I try to connect via my Surface Pro, after putting in my desktops computer name, I come to the point where I have to enter the credentials. This was pretty
simple as I only have the one, So I put in my Admin log on info (just as I would to log on to my desktop normally). but after I do I get the dreaded "Your credentials didn't work" page. I've tried over and over again but It simply wont work. I have
both PCs set up to accept Remote access, I have Remote Display cleared thru the Firewall, I even tried at one point to use the non- NLA just to see if it would work, but to no avail. I can't connect from my desktop rig to my surface either. When I try that
I get "an authentication error has occured. The Local Security Authority could not be contacted", I saw in another forum that this could be due to an expired password, and even tho I assumed that was for a VPN access I ensured m,y passwords were
new and that I was no longer using a PIN to unlock my Surface. I'm kind of expelled my options here, I thought this would be a simple click-n-play  considering I'm in home and not using any other ... Read more

A:Remote desktop credentials did not work

okay so I solved the issue. I was eventually able to access my surface from my desktop by doing the user name in the new Win8 RDC format :

"MicosoftAccount/[email protected]" and then using my MS account password
Getting things done that way didn't work in the opposite direction tho, so I hunted down what I considered to be the simple solutions....a misplaced number, an unchecked box, a improperly installed driver/software...anything really. Then I finally ran across
the clue that solved it all, and ofcourse it was a stupid little thing. My user name on my Desktop is HoboFist, thats what I sign in under...thats whats listed under users in the control panel. So I went to my HoboFist user folder (the one with the link from
the start menu), but when I went up one folder (now in c:/users/) I saw that the folder that had said "HoboFist" was actually addressed as ****(my name). See when the computer was built the original Admin account was created under my name for quickness...then
the account was later changed to HoboFist thru the control panel. Apparently this DOESN'T alter the credential info for the RDC...so the user name I was trying never existed according to the software. When I logged on with the original user name and current
password, it connected no problem.
Sorry to have caused you guys  grief over a stupid mix up. Thanks so much and I hope this can help someone else in the future.

Hi all... I'm usually pretty comfortable with networking support, but recently got stuck on a project for a client of mine, and could use a little help.

First, the rather simple goal: to be able for an office employee to use MS Remote Desktop at home to access a work computer.

As I understand it, in order to use RDC from an off-site computer, one will first need to establish a VPN connection to the office network (RDC has been tested within the office environment and works fine)

The office I am supporting has an AT&T broadband connection with 8 static IP's (5 usable) running off of a Netopia 3347-02 (firmware 7.81r2). The Netopia gateway is assigned to 7x.xxx.xxx.30 and the computer I have set up as the VPN server (by doing basically this http://www.onecomputerguy.com/networking/xp_vpn_server.htm) is assigned to 7x.xxx.xxx.20.

I would like to simply VPN to the 7x.xxx.xxx.20 machine, and then RDC into that and 3-4 other machines once on VPN. I have accessed the Netopia settings and set up pinholes for port 1723 on TCP, but repeatedly get an "Error 800" when trying to establish the Windows VPN.

From a topic at another forum (http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r19949739-Help-with-3347NWG006-remote-desktopVPN-issue) I attempted to set up a pinhole for PPTP, but like the user in that topic, do not have such an option in my firmware. And after perusing Moto's support page (http://www.netopia.com/support/hardware/index.html) I didn't come across... Read more

I've got a Toshiba Tecra running WinXP Pro & enabled Remote Desktop. I added the user so now it's part of the Remote User's group. It's running behind a Linksys WRT54GS router. I have DSL and I know my "external" IP address changes. I am able to connect to my WinXP system from any system inside my network. I can even go through Internet Explorer using the Web Connection. But only from inside my network. I'm not running Zone Alarm or Norton Internet Security on my WinXP system.

When I take 1 of my systems off my LAN and dialup through NetZero, I cannot connect.

This is what I've already done:
I forwarded port 3389 in my Router to the IP address of my WinXP system (192.168.2.108)
I also forwarded port 3254 to that same address. This is for the Web Connection. I installed IIS. Went to Control Panel, Admin Tools, IIS. Under Web Sites\Default Web Site then Properties, I changed the TCP Port from the default of 80 to 3254. I found a web-site with those instructions.

Because I know that my external IP address changes, I registered with DynDNS.org and created a host for myself. It's free. Then I downloaded a free utility that goes out every 5 minutes and checks my external IP address and updates DynDNS.org.

For this discussion, let's say that my host is llbrown143.thisexample.org
When I go to ping llbrown143.thisexample.org from any computer on my LAN or even when I dial in using NetZero, I get the assigned external (public)... Read more

Remembering that the labtop is the one i want access to. I really want to know how to connect to my labtop from work. according to the microsoft site this is possibly. well what am i doing wrong.
 

A:remote desktop wont work

Do you have a static IP address on the computer?
Have you done the appropriate port mapping on the router to that IP address?

Hey,

I am having problems where the connection and overall feel of the computer is very slow when running windows remote desktop to connect to my work PC via VPN.

The actual speed of my home internet connection is 100MB so I though that this would give me a really nice speed and make working from a little more seamless however its not the case at all.

My laptop at home is pretty powerful and running windows 7, my desktop computer which I connect too runs windows xp.

Not sure if my broadband provider has anything to do with it however they are Virgin Media.

Can anyone offer me any advise or possible things to try?

Thanks

Scott

A:slow remote desktop when using VPN to work PC

It might actually be your companies security settings on there end. The way VPN works is that its a secure way to do things remotely, and generally doing stuff securely sometimes slows everything down, this is the same case. Heck, I'm on the same network remotting into an server and its very laggy.

I'm trying to connect from one W7 netbook to another W7 laptop, two different networks (two different IP addresses to further clarify)

It is not working. I did infact enable remote assistance and remote desktop connection on both computers.

What would cause this problem? On the netbook I'm connecting from, I use RDP software from accessories folder and input the correct IP (I'm 100% positive). It tells me the other computer is either off, not on the network or remote connection disabled - but all is false.

If it helps, I'm using Dlink DIR-655 router and Avira antivirus. I doubt they would interfere.

I'm trying to figure out where in the router interface I'd enable remote connection, but not sure what area would cover this. Under "tools > admin" I enabled what is called "Enable Remote Management" on port 8080, restarted router. Same problem.
 

A:w7 / remote desktop connection won't work

Double check to make sure you have Remote desktop enable on both PC's. If you are connecting through your Lan you dont have to worry about having the ports opened in your Router. Open your command prompt on both computers and type: nestat -a and look for TCP port 3389 to be opened. If that port is opened you should be good to go. Also if you have any software firewall OTHER than Window Firewall disable that incase its causing any interference.
