PC anywhere type programs...

Anyone have any suggestions for this type of program? I am using the trial of Mypc looking for other options...

To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

Just curious, what do you need to do that you can't do with VNC?

It says this is only good for 180 mins or 30 days....then after that you have to buy just like gotomypc.com

I did it again..think I might of Misunderstood it..it says below

As an added bonus, when you sign up for our LogMeIn FREE product, for the next 30 days (or 120 minutes of use, whichever comes first) you'll receive the extra features found in our premium products ($12.95 Value!)

I use logmein at work to support my clients and it's WAY better than VNC. But then again, you get what you pay for.

I'll ask again, what's the advantage to that over VNC? Is it due to the user being able to initiate the connection from behind a firewall/NAT device? If so, that makes a lot of sense.

Typically I pitch Cisco's MeetingPlace Express for a good web collaboration tool. The IT folks get their remote support tools and the corporate weenies get audio/video/web conferencing.

I never said LogMeIn will do things that RealVNC won't.
RealVNC was always choppy for me, even locally. So speed was an issue. With LogMeIn, you also get 256-bit encryption, but I can't remember what you got with RealVNC.

Ah, the free version typically do not have any encryption. Odd that you have problems with it being choppy though. Any way I was just curious. Thanks.

LogMeIn is free and it's the best I've found.
Using RealVNC on the same network at work, I would have a lot of lag.

Right. Soooo...I'm not saying you did not, but I've never had lag on a decent network with RealVNC and I use it a ton. It's sent with Cisco UC apps that still runs on windows (Unity, IPCC...etc), I use it on every PC (8) and VM (6) I own and nearly ever customer network where I manage a Cisco app that runs on Windows. Which means I often use RealVNC over the Internet via VPNs and completely congested Internet connections.

I suspect something else is/was going on there. The ONLY reason I am trying to counter argue the RealVNC point is because the last I used logmein *I* personally disliked it for the following reasons...

1. Web based.
2. Heavier agent/client/server..etc type installs compared to the VNC server. No TSR for the client.
3. Slower to get logged in..etc.
4. Customers, IT departments and so forth will frown on an Internet based remote access service - as opposed to someone VPN'ing into their network and using VNC, RDP and so forth. (Unless 100% managed by that IT department and deemed secure)

I was just looking for more technical reasons besides "VNC was laggy." Considering I've never had an issue with VNC, and I know hundreds of other people who use it with no issues, I can't consider that a true technical reason to use/push logmein over VNC, RDP or MPE.

I read this a little and it appears I'm trying to be a dick. Not true, I just don't understand the appeal to logmein and I don't understand why RealVNC was laggy for you.

Take care,

I don't understand why it was either. I've tried it during congested times and uncongested times. Even a friend who worked for Cisco had similar issues with it. I haven't used RealVNC in a long time so I really can't explain more than that. When I found LogMeIn, I ran from RealVNC. The only reason I used it after that was because some people didn't want you accessing their network from a web-based application. But LogMeIn operated faster and was faster to log in and setup.
