The latest release of Laplink Everywhere brings greater choice and flexibility to people who need to connect to a remote PC. By combining superior remote control and a unique web interface for streamlined remote access, Laplink Everywhere 4 lets users connect to a remote PC from a wide range of computers and handheld devices, including Windows Mobile Pocket PC, Smartphone, Symbian and Palm OS devices.
Unlike ordinary web-based remote control applications, Laplink Everywhere 4 gives users the option of selecting a remote access interface that gives streamlined access to files, email, calendar, contacts, notes, tasks, and Internet favorites.
This latest release continues to make security a priority, offering connectivity through existing firewall and router configurations, 128-bit SSL encryption for secure data transmission, and "zero footprint" technology that keeps your identity and data safe, even on a shared or public computer.
Laplink Everywhere 4 integrates Microsoft's Remote Desktop Protocol and extends Microsoft Remote Desktop functionality, allowing you to remotely control Windows XP Professional and Windows Server 2000/2003 machines over the Internet and through firewalls with no special configuration.
Even remote desktop search is possible through the Laplink Everywhere 4 web interface. Users can quickly locate files, email, and archived instant messages from a remote PC using Google Desktop Search, even with a web-enabled mobile device. Files found through this interface can be viewed, attached to e-mails or sent to other users via e-mail as attachments or a secure download link.
When a remote control plug-in or ActiveX control can't be downloaded to the computer you are using to connect to your remote PC, you can use the web interface to access data such as files, email, and Outlook data. The web interface allows access to these data through slow connections, instead of requiring a remote control session.
As another feature for mobile devices, Windows Mobile Pocket PC and Palm OS users can install the Laplink Companion for handheld devices, a client program that will provide remote synchronisation and access to email and Outlook data while online and respond while offline. All offline activity is automatically executed when users are online next time.
Laplink Everywhere 4 prices start at US$8.95 per month or US$44.95 per year.
