Where I work 90% of the users are consultants and are not in the office. They all use VPN to auth. in for the most part. What software would you recommend? Anything web based where we could host a server?
there's netmeeting and microsoft has something that does that too - livemeeting. having been on the receiving end while calling MS server support I can say its awesome.
Those claiming remote desktop as not secure should remember that the basic version with windows xp uses 56bit encryption and that the verision supplied with server 2003 (\windows\system32\clients\) forget the rest of the path... can use SSL encryption if the remote host supports it.
I would also remind people that VNC is about as easy to break into as a paper tent.
Interwise is very similar. Been working with it for a while at my work place, and we were quite happy with the features and performance. http://www.interwise.com
GoToMyPc (as well as LogMeIn) belong to another type of solutions, closer to VNC in the concept, allowing a remote user to view your desktop. Only difference is that they traverse firewalls much more easily than VNC or RDP. This is why I don't think they're secure enough.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
