Remotely control your computer
Remote desktop access is an interesting concept. It involves using a network to access a PC remotely and run applications on it. This offers several advantages over traditional filesharing and connectivity techniques.
Users can download and test out Remote Control software for free from LogMeIn (https://secure.logmein.com/products/free/) or Desktopshare (http://desktopshare.net/home.html). Remote Control technology can be useful for users who want to sync up their work PCs with their home PCs. For instance, set something to download on their home PC while they are at work. But the main advantage of PC remote access software is for organisations.
A major one is the saved costs on licensed software — instead of installing it on multiple computers, a company can instal it on one computer and employees can remotely access it via network whenever they need to use it. It simplifies tech support, the technician can take over the bugged PC instead of yelling instructions on the phone.
