Has anyone any advice on services that allow you access to your PC from anywhere?
So far I have come across this one.
GoToMyPC https://www.gotomypc.com
Any one have opinions on it?

Hoping for some input
from Pat

I have seen PCAnywhere been used before, and it seemed quite good. I have never personally used it though.

If using WinXP you can use remote services.

I have tried GotoMyPC and it also works as does PC Anywhere.

I have used all the above.

Of the three PC Anywhere was the best for what *I* was doing.
It was easy to setup and was fairly secure. It was the best answer for me to leave the PC on at work and also work from home.

What are you trying to do and what O/S are you using?

YMMV.

I personally use a combo of Remote Administrator from radmin.com, and RealVNC from realvnc.com

Also, I have a no-ip.com domain which means I usually just have to load up RealVNC from any PC around the world while my PC @ home is online, type in:
Mynoipaccount.no-ip.com
hit connect
and I have complete control, with Radmin I can do File Transfers etc too!

Look into it...

Its to do as you do, leave the PC on at work and also work from home.
However computers do not use same operating systems. I will check out PC Anywhere.
thankyou heaps,
Pat

You can use PC Anywhere on different operating systems.

I had WinXP at home and Win98SE at work.

Both places were running OfficeXP as the application.

Mostly I was just uploading Excel spreadeets to work and updating docs there as well.

The operating system at work was also accessible from home but I usually didn't need to do that.

Like using a network as it were.

Not intending to hijack your thread zefirebird, but has anyone tried Laplink which came out recently as a freebee with a computer mag.

I seem to recall, connection of PC's was it's main claim to fame.
