Remote Desktop software allows you to view the screen of another
computer and control it remotely. In this way you can log on to your office computer
from home, and view your office desktop and access all your files as if you were
using your actual office computer. This can open up all sorts of possibilities if
you have multiple office locations or have staff working from home or travelling
Since it is possible to control other computers remotely from your own computer,
it negates the need to have multiple computers in the first place. If a typical
small office has 8 desktop computers and a server to share content, using the latest
Remote Desktop software those 8 desktops could be replaced with 8 Thin Client computers
(basically consisting only of a screen and keyboard). The user would still see their
recognisable desktop and programs, but they would actually be viewing their profile
which is stored on the server rather than their local computer. This can cut down
on your hardware requirements, saving you money.
Examples include logmein
or even (free) VNC.
Remote Access can be secured with a VPN Tunnel to ensure the information is transmitted
