A free remote desktop software

Q: A free remote desktop software

Hello,
I search a free remote-desktop software to control 2-3 pcs (on Windows).
I need it for personal use only. So I need a maximum of options but I don't need a simple program.
I don't need a tool like teamviewer because it need a password (so a preson is needed to give the password).
Thanks.

Preferred Solution: A free remote desktop software

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.)

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?

Hello all,

Wondering if anyone here can recommend any type of free, secure remote connection software; i.e. to connect one person's computer to another's so that the remote person can "control" the other's desktop. I'd need it to work on XP, 98 & ME. The reason is this; I do computer repair on a house call basis, and some of my customers are 30+ miles away. I'd cut them a break on pricing if they'd allow me to "tunnel in", and I'd like to offer them a piece of software that's free. I've found customers always like it when things don't cost them a dime... Thanks

hey guys,im looking for some software to remote desktop to my other pc from my laptop. im currently using logmein free, whichs works great, i like the features such as being able to change resolution to match the host pc. the only draw back is that it runs through the internet, and so its a bit slow and laggy, but also it will no doubt use up my internet allowance from my ISP.so is there any other software that works like logmein, but is designed to work over a lan (wirelessly). at work we use the xp pro remote desktop, but unfortunately i dont have xp pro on these machines.free would be an advantage too ;)cheers, deanEdit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

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 NT® 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).

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

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

It seems, the graphics card of the host plays a part in speed of graphics refresh during remote sessions. Something to do with rasterizing.

Hi guys,

i have a question about remote connection, but i don't know exactly what kind of solution i'm looking for...

i have a desktop with quad-cpu and much bigger memory, and i have another laptop which is old and slow. My thinking is to make a server on the desktop, so that the laptop could share the cpu time and memory from desktop.

That is to say: there could be two persons in front of both computers, they log in using own username and they should not interrupt each others work, but all the programs should run on the desktop computer.

So Remote Desktop, VNC or TeamViewer etc. don't really match my needs...

I don't really know what we call this technology, but i know that citrix have this kind of business solution, what i wanna know is if there are any usable free or inexpensive solutions for personal/non-commercial use?

Thanks a lot!

Btw., my desktop is running Windows 7 Pro 64bit and Laptop is running Windows XP Pro 32bit.

A:Which Solution: Remote Desktop? Virtual Desktop? Remote Terminal?

There may be alternatives to Citrix, but the concept is basically to access a remote desktop on server where you run applications installed on server. If the performance is adequate you will gain in bandwidth and licensing costs, but the scenario you describe implies that the laptop should somehow share the resources of the server, physically(?)...

I am currently unaware of any inexpensive "citrix" solutions but I would think that is what you are after. Logging on the server, starting an app on server, but managing it on the laptop.

Have you looked in to a HDD and RAM upgrade of the Laptop?

Hi

I know there are other products out there, like vnc, ultravnc, teamviewer etc etc, but really nothing beats the sheer speed of remote desktop, it's like sitting in front of the actual computer. I also know about Remote Assistance built into Windows 7.

I would like to use remote desktop to do the following if possible.

1. I would like to know if there is a way, to not lock the host machine that you are connected to?, so the user can see what you are doing?.

2. Is there a way that Remote desktop can be used without logging off the logged in account?, or just use the logged in account?

I would like to use Remote Desktop for a remote helpdesk solution if possible. If anyone knows how to do this things I am asking it would be the people on this board.

Ive followed the instructions to a T, & cannot get a remote access connection to my computer using the "Microsoft remote desktop connection" app for iOS. Ive watched youtube videos and followed other directions only to no avail. When I signed up for internet & installed the modem/router(s), the first thing i did was alter my routers default wireless gateway from a 192.168.x.x to my own gateway for security reasons. I also changed the default web interface login credentials. So i am familiar with the web UI of routers & I have spent many hours looking up most of the options that can be configured in the web UI of the many routers I have used & I dont think it has to do with the web UI, I think its something that involves my PC settings. I have another remote desktop app that flawlessly connects to my PC & is extremely fluid in its access, but its a third party app on an inactive andriod device. I'd really like to use the "official" Microsoft remote desktop connection app on my active iOS device &, just as important, know & understand what is preventing access to my computer with this app. I also use the "mobile mouse" app as a remote mouse & keyboard for my computer & its on my active iOS device. So any help is much appreciated

A:remote desktop connect issue via MS remote desktop app

You have to be able to open the ports for RDP on your router/gateway, along with if you have a Dynamic IP that may change, have to use a Dynamic DNS option like OpenDNS. You would really be better off using Teamviewer.

My question is, is it possible to disable the ctrl alt del functionality in Windows 7 so that that Blue security screen does not appear?

How do I stop this? Thanks!

RELEVANCY SCORE 50.4

We're using a Server 2008 r2 Terminal server environment.
I have one particular user (running windows 7 64bit) who's having an issue with a HP laserjet 400 M401 printer. She connects with her local printer set to follow her to the remote session but randomly through her session, programs like word or adobe reader
will pull up another random printer in our network instead of her local one.
For instance, today she pulled up a .pdf and it defaulted to one printer across the complex, then later within the same session she pulled up a Wordperfect document and it defaulted to a copier on the other side of the office.
She's the only person having this particular issue. So far my IT manager rebuilt her local profile (albeit sometime back) and I reinstalled drivers but I'm a bit stumped on which direction to take with this one.
I've ideated on it being an issue with USB cables, Printer memory, account data related, or maybe bandwidth?
Any help is appreciated.

The title says it all! Basically I have a comp running XP pro and I want to be able to work locally on one user account, with some kind of remote access server running on another XP user account so that the remote account and the local account can be used simultaniously. I know that this cannot be done with XP Pro remote desktop and could be by Windows Server 2003 remote desktop, but i need an alternate solution to make this happen.

Thanks!

A:Problem Transferring Files from Local to Remote Computer in Remote Desktop

You are trying to do this over Remote Desktop?
I have used this with Windows 2000 Server and my XP computer. I would assume it will work with 2003 server.
