Remote Access to Your PC or Mac: LogMein Free

Dear viewers,

Here is a completely free program that will allow you to get to your home or office computer from anywhere you may be,as long as you leave your computer "on" while you are away:

LogMeIn Free gives you remote control of your PC or Mac from any other computer with an Internet connection.

Simply install LogMeIn on the computer you want to access (it takes about 2 minutes), log into your account from another computer and click the computer you want to control. You'll see its desktop and be able to use all the applications on your remote computer as if you were sitting in front of it - even if you're across town, across the country, or across the world.

•Works with Windows PCs and Mac OS X
•Two-minute set-up
•100% free

LogMein Free includes:

•Access from any Internet-connected web browser
•Access to a Windows PC or Mac
•Remote control and desktop viewing
•Copy and paste between computers
•Wake on LAN
•Reboot/reconnect (including safe mode)
•Basic reports (remote access sessions and user access)
•Chat
•AES 256-bit encryption
•SSL/TLS intrusion detection
•IP address lockout
•No need for firewall, router or proxy configuration
•No requirement for remote PC admin rights

If you want to control file transfer, remote printing, desktop sharing, and more, the company offers a "Pro" edition that provides full remote access so you can transfer files between computers, print documents from your remote computer to a local printer, share files with others and more. It is the complete remote access solution for mobile professionals and telecommuters.

I have this program, (the free option), installed in both my Desk Top and Lap Top, therefore I can always work on my main computer regardless of where I am.

I hope it will be helpful for some of you.

Thanks for the interesting information. Its really of great need when u want to access your system from remote PC.

But I have a question here. Is the entire application reliable from security point of view. Is there any option to protect your data from unauthorized access.

Thanks for your comment concerning security in using this program.

What i am going to say, comes directly from LogMein, and it is up to you to trust their comments. I feel comfortable myself in using the program. Here is what they say:

Thanks for your the reply. I am satisfied with your answer.

See , why I am asking this ,is only because many people (including me), do all their activity through internet only. In such cases if there is any loophole , it may result a severe loss.

I am glad you are satisfied with my reply.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have concerning other subjects; or maybe you would like to post your own computer problem experiences you were able to resolve and that might be interesting for all our viewers to read.
