Q: Solved: Remote Admin Software or Remote Support Software

Hi ladies and gentleman!

I am searching for reliable, secure, and fast Remote Support Package and/or Remote Administration Software on the enterprise level.

I know about RealVNC, TightVNC, Windows Built-in Remote Support, but Iím looking for something ďmoreĒ reliable, with less user interaction & knowledge required.

Anyone on here know of any out on the market? Iíd appreciate any links or information that you could provide.

It would be great if someone has actually tested or used some of the software & could recommend it, but even if you havenít used them any type of reference would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks & have a wonderful day!

Shane

PS: I did a search, but I kept ending up in the malware & virus removal section.

Preferred Solution: Solved: Remote Admin Software or Remote Support 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 do quite a bit of work helping other people to fix their computers and have been working with PC's for over 25 years and also have A+, Network+, and CCNA certifications. In receiving some remote support from Symantic with my antiVirus softeware and noticing how easy their remote software worked I found out that they use a product called "LogMeIn Remote Support". I went to their web site and discovered that they charge $130.00 per month. The LogMeIn product was so simple. I will use the example of a support person/company and a customer using the phone as it's initial contact.

1. User phones support company and explains issue(s).
2. Support person ask for permission to take control of user's computer.
3. Support person gives user a URL to goto which automatically opens the LogMeIn screen and a field to enter a PIN number (which is provided by the support person) and the the user clicks the "Continue" button.
4. A small Java applet is installed on the users compter and the LogMeIn opens a chat box or they can continue using the phone.
5. Support takes control of users computer and fixes the problem. (LogMeIn also allows for a reboot of users computer if necessary and reboots be to the LogMeIn program just where it left off without going through steps 1 - 4 above, again).
6. When the remote session is ended the LogMeIn software removes the Jave applet from the users computer, leaving no trace.

Well, $130.00 a month is probably worth if tec... Read more

Anyone familiar with any good remote support software, similar to www.realvnc.com ? I'm looking for something that can connect from a customer's site to the support site, even if the customer is behind a firewall/router. With VNC, you have to configure the router to forward ports to the particular computer.

Here's one that was advertised here on TSG: http://www.networkstreaming.com/benefits.html

But, well, their site didn't exactly impress me. GotoMyPC isn't really an option, as you need an expensive license for each client computer -- I'm looking at something more from a support point of view. Any other suggestions?

I am looking for the best remote control software that works on a budget.

What do you recommend?

I would like most of the following features below. Most important is
that I can provide the most common support features to solve a
person's computer problem remotely, and it works through firewalls
with no client or support person setup. I imagine that means a
web-based solution like webex.com or inquerio.com, but they are too expensive for my

I liked DualDesk's features and price but the trial prooved not to work for a client's firewall I think. That is why I believe web-based is the answer.

Required features (mostly in order of priority)
------------------------------------------------
-remote control client's PC
-multiple chat sessions (two at least)
-file and folder transfer
-Works with Mozilla, Fire Fox, Internet Explorer, Netscape browsers at least
-Works through firewalls (PC or Mac) and NAT Routers with no setup
required on either end
-Does not require Internet Explorer to work or Active-X
-Don't have to reboot remote PC to start client session
-Allows Remote Reboot/Log-On/Off & shutdown

My company has been using Gotoassist for remote support for several years now, and recently decided to explore competitive offerings.  An exhaustive search led us to ScreenConnect.  ScreenConnect has several features I believe sets it apart from others.  First, it is self-hosted.  For some, this may not be a benefit as it may require some technical knowledge to get up and running depending on your configuration.   We are a fan of self-hosted apps as it gives us the control over configuration, customization, and updates.  The next thing that sets ScreenConnect apart is the customization.  Virtually anything you can think of is customizable (Logo, Heading, background, wording throughout the website, etc.)  The product even has an option that is optimized for use in an iframe on your existing website.  On the client side, the tray icon and executable name can even be customized.  If you are looking for a product that can be customized to look as if it were your own, this is it. I am also very impressed with the product support.  I have yet to call support, but the documentation available is excellent, and easy to use.  I had no problem configuring a custom host name, installing an SSL certificate, setting up new roles/users, or segmenting the hosting areas to allow technicians to only see their initiated sessions.  When in session, I have found the toolbox and annotation tools extremely helpful and the docking...

I need your inputs.
I am searching for a remote support/access solution for my company. I've researched a bit online, and found most discussions are about hosted solution. Well, I just can't trust the third party sever and am concerned with the security issue.

Anyone thought of appliance-based solution? I could deploy appliance behind company's firewall. It kind of gives a secure private cloud. The integration with LDAP and the maintenance is easier too. It also comes with floating licensing, good from business perspective as well.

As for the software-only products, they require installation on a computer. The up-front cost is high. I need to have a dedicated computer to host it to avoid disruptions from other applications. And it takes extensive time to setup and maintain the system.

Please share your ideas. I won't miss anything. thanks!

Hi Everyone,

I am currently trying to decide on the best remote support software to purchase for a 50+ workstation business. I have experimented with Real VNC and TeamViewer, and whilst they are quite comparable I noticed that TeamViewer has a feature called "Seamless Windows" (if anybody knows anything about this feature can you please let me know).

I will be providing remote support to local users, and several interstate branches - therefore the software that I decide on must accommodate a wide diversity of geographical locations.

I was also looking at a product called GoverLAN, but it seems to me that GoverLAN only works on a single LAN and can't be used over a WAN in a similar way to both RealVNC & TeamViewer (if you have experience with GoverLAN to the contrary can you please let me know).

Any general advice on what the best remote support software is will be great (including personal usage experiences).

Hi,
I'm looking for a good remote access solution, primarily on my home network but out of network access would be a plus. I have a windows media center Vista Home Premium machine that I want to be able to control from any machine on my network including my laptop with wireless access. I also would like to use it to provide remote help.

Free would be ideal but not necessary

I've looked at realvnc.com but the free version is not compatible with Vista

Logmein doesn't appear to have a free version and I think I've heard various tech podcasts saying they use it. Which pay version is best, they have a lot of them.

Windows Remote Desktop is out because it doesn't support Vista Home Premium. You would think someone would have an easy had for this.

Complete one sided control with no manual confirmations from the accessed machine is necessary, too many steps otherwise and I could use remote assistance if I was willing to go to each machine.

I think I've heard of a virtual KVM but it was enterprise level and $$$.

So what are you all using? If I decide to buy, what would be the best option.

Yes. They certainly could have gotten your social security number, but it is unlikely for that to have happened within thirty seconds unless they knew exactly what they were looking for. It depends on whether you were using an installed version of the tax software or the online version. The online version requires a password for access and would be safer in a situation like you have described. Only give remote access to your PC to someone you trust completely.

I use logmein free, but it doesn't do what I would like it to do (not as far as I know).

I want something that I can access whenever I want, but I want it to be "invisible." Stealth isn't the point here - a notice I'm logged on is fine. I just want to be able to use the connection WITHOUT dominating the computer. I.e., if you've ever used uTorrent's WebUI you know what I mean. With UTWebUI you fire it up on your end, and it passes your commands on to the host's UT client invisibly. So the host user can do whatever he wants with his computer while you're invisibly connected to uTorrent on his machine.

Again, please keep your "SpYinG iz TEH Wrowang" to yourself, because I don't want to spy. A notice would be fine. I just want to be able to use the connection without taking over his desktop. See, he has broadband, and I don't, but he barely uses it, except for light browsing, and I use stuff like UT and he doesn't mind.

But I'd like to have something equivalent to UTWebUI for a web browser so I could, say, download files from download sites. Anyone who's done that knows how enormously tedious it is. You have to download a bunch of RARs or ZIPs, and you have the waiting period, etc. I don't want to have to tie up the host all the time with that crap, so without something like this I won't be able to do the tasks.

Hello oct714


My advice and free (looks complex but really is not)

Go here and get UltraVNC http://majorgeeks.com/UltrVNC_d4143.html

Do full install on your computer but not install as a service.

During 1st run or at end of install you will get an Admin Properties screen, on the left half way down delete out the dots and put in a simple password like govnc or similar that you will easily remember.

When you finish you will have 2 new Icons with the VNC Eyeball. One will be the Server Blue (using the instructions below you as helper will not use this one).

Rt click the Green Viewer and then create Shortcut, once this new Shortcut is made rename it "UltraVNC Viewer Listen" then rt click and chose properties.

Click into Target line. Then add a space and -listen.

It will look like this. "C:\Program Files\UltraVNC\vncviewer.exe" -listen

Dbl click this to run. Goes to system tray at bottom right. If the Firewall or Windows Defender pop up always allow this. Give it permission.

Apply OK!

Have them do the same install on their end. Including the same password.

Once installed have them to Run the Server. It also will load into the system tray.

Once it is loaded to the system on their end, you have them to Rt click the Tray Icon, click Add new Client the click the Host block and enter your IP number. They will be contacting you. Doing it this way avoids router and firewall protections and forwarding on their end.

I am in the process of going self employed and am wanting to offer a remote fix solution. I have used 'Logmein' free edition to control my home pc's for a while and i know they offer a 'Rescue' package which does exactly what i would want it to and more but I don't know of other software which may be cheaper and better.

Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks

I was hoping someone here could fill me in on remote access software. I live in CA and my family lives in CO. They know NOTHING about fixing their computers and try to get me to help them over the phone. I tried to get my mom to install logmein but she got weird about it not being secure, blah blah blah. That and we couldnt even get it installed.

Ive seen software that works this way: someone goes to a link and clicks it, it downloads a file that points back to a server and allows the admin to then remotely access that persons computer. Then after the session its pretty much closed until the process is repeated. What are some of the names of software like this and some websites I can evaluate some of it.

I dont mind paying for the software if its reasonable. But if there is something opensource(free!!) That would be even better!!

I just need to know the names of some software like this then I can research it on my own... Thanks!!

Also- Is there a way to do it through Windoze? There is something in where remote desktop options reside that is about remote access....

long story short, a friend of mine is newly online, while she does have some computer literacy she does still need quite a bit of help with setups and a little continued support.

so basically lm looking for software that would allow me to remotely manage her setup until she is confident of managing her computers herself, not to mention that her PC is located in her bedroom and she would prefer me to be able to set it up (install software and such) from her living room, not to mention that ld be able to help her out when lm at home and not physically at her residence.

either way lm looking for something simple to install and use thats secure that will allow me to access both Win8 and 10 based systems (her PC is Win8 and new laptop Win10) tho l will be using a win7 setup from either my PC or laptop (my laptop has recently been downgraded as l hated using 8.1).
