My partner and I have set up a new business and while we have an office and a shop it is a distance from both our homes and we both maintain offices at home.
We have installed a new computer at the shop and have DSL there as well. We would like to be able to have a secretary do data entry and other routine tasks at the office but backups and the main programs for the business(QuickBooks and Outlook) would remain residing on the destop at my partner's home office.
So we ware trying to decide on best way to establish remote access for all three PC's. I have seen much advertising about a service called GoToMyPC (or something). I Googled the term and saw a couple of discussions, all of which pointed out the same thing, mainly, that GotoMyPC was a paid service and that another, LogMein was free.
I worked, until recently, at another small company that used PC Anywhere for this same purpose and in that situation anyway, It seemed to perform flawlessly (for me). I could access the entire network at work (for which I had permissions of course). Point here is, in all the discussions I have seen not one mention of PC-Anywhere anywhere. Yet it seemed to me a good product (security issues here ?)
Do any of you have opinions on this issue ?
What is wrong with PC-Anywhere?
What about alternatives?
Your collective thoughts would be appreciated!!
All systems involved are at least 1.5ghx, WinXP Pro, and Home (in one case), Win200-Pro. All are networked locally with DSL and or cable connections and routers.
