G'day lads & ladesses,

What's a good remote desktop application suitable for an Apache screen?

I run win 2003 SBS.

I have tried the terminal services client built into WM5 and that gets me there, but the screen is a bit clumsy. Is there anything else that would do the trick better?

Cheers

Motorwayne

how does log me in work from the Apache?
I can remote manage from PC's no problemo using client services b/c the a pc screen is big enough to see everything. I was thinking of a client that looked better on the apache as far as screen goes than the RCS b/c all you get is the toolbars etc taking up most of the screen area.

Yes, both programs install an application on your server, which will communicate to their servers. This way you don't have to open any firewall ports and there's no applications listening on your machine - they only have outgoing connections.

Both have Pocket PC viewers with Zoom options, etc. I also use LogMeIn IT Reach, which is a full remote administration (not only remote control, but full management).

I sorta feel a bit naked with these third party apps, where with terminal services client, at least I know I'm secure.

Believe me, you are not. Both RDP and VNC need an open door on your server and firewall. These applications don't. I have been using GoToMyPC on my desktop at home for years, and LogMeIn IT Reach on the main server for some months now.

I might have a look at LogMeIn IT Reach next month.

Thanks for that
