Remote Access – TeamViewer

Finally got fed up with LogMeIn’s nonsense (price & program changes) and went looking for something else.

Found TeamViewer which seems a good solution. I only need remote access to my computer when on the road at this time, which is free. Seems to work smoothly. As a bonus, it has an Android client. Will look into it’s other capabilities in the future. Interestingly, it’s got a single purchase price rather than a monthly fee.

Looked into MSP Anywhere as well. While the company and product names are really horrible (what does MSP mean? N-Solar? What does that have to do with software?) and the website is equally horrible at explaining their product and what it could do, it has some nice features. It has the standard remote unattended access and an Android client. You can also create a “calling card” (another horrible name) which is an EXE you can create and distribute to clients. They just run that EXE to give you access to their computer. Pretty slick. At $49/month it’s reasonable, but quickly ends up more than TeamViewer’s $800 or so flat price.
