Remote Access Software

By nixer ·
Does anyone know of a decent software that I could use to remotely control another XP workstation?

I would like to be able to control workstations that are on a network and one that is not (my own pc). I know xp has remote assistance but I am looking for something were I would not need another person at the other station.

Also, is it possible to to create a sometype of network (WAN) between just two computers when 1 has a dialup and the other has dsl?

I know these may be simple questions to most of you. I just figured I would ask.

Xp has remote desktop as well. It's more like terminal services where you can access your pc from anywhere.

Radmin v2.0

by LordInfidel In reply to Remote Access Software

It is light weight, cheap and does the job better then any other remote tool out there.

Runs as a service and is intergrated with NT security. Also you can customize the port it listens on.

We use Romote Admin on our WAN, and works great, and there doesn't need to be a person on the other end. I think it is one of the cheaper remote softwares out there.

Get VNC, and run it as a service. I believe it has the option built in to do that. You had better keep very strong passwords on those machines! VNC requires its own password to rant access...
