If you work as a help desk executive/system Admin, this post is a MUST read. Team Viewer is an internet based Remote assistance software that easily allows you to connect to your client’s PC. It also has additional features like File Sharing, etc. Team Viewer works even if your computer has a firewall or a NAT proxy.
To have access to another computer, you will need to know the dynamic ID and the Password of Team Viewer installed on the computer you wish to access. The ID and the password can also be set to be static, but, I won’t recommend it.
The Remote Interface (the client here runs Windows 2000 professional) The Speed of access is pretty decent, considering the Internet connectivity we get in Madras. Themes are disabled on the client’s computer to save bandwidth. Team Viewer also allows VPN, VoIP, Video Chatting over Remote Access, etc.
VPN is a pretty cool feature but it requires the tedious installation of a Team Viewer adapter. File transfer mode offers speeds upto 45KBps on my 512kbps connection which is pretty decent and better than torrents/Rapid share.
Team Viewer also has an iPhone app that allows you to remotely access your computer from your mobile phone. Team Viewer’s paid version offers a lot more features. I haven’t got a lot to tell about this software. I am sure you will become obsessed with it just like me once you get it installed on your computer.
