Free Remote Desktop Software
show user profile  mrgrotey
Hi guys, I have been using LogMeIn.com for remote access to my parents and fiancées parents PCs when they need help for a few years but they are now going to be stopping the free option. This is forcing me to look elsewhere.

Does any one use a similar browser-based remote access software? I would like to be browser based so I don't have to install software on the PC I want to use it on.

TeamViewer, I think it's free for personal use.

Thanks for the suggestion Mr B. A browser based-option is preferred if any one knows any good ones?

Could you use TeamView to work on Max files? If so, that would be cool to add as a feature to this site. You can have normal assistance (as is), or TeamViewer assistance, where noobs pay us to run through their problems with them. Could be a nice little bit of pocket-money-earner.

Also thinking, while I'm hijacking, really should have a section where people can advertise jobs. Not people saying, "Check out my portfolio, I'm really, really good and shit," but a tab that's restricted to advertising jobs only.

yea you can do max over teamviewer.. theoretically, the framerate for anything even mildly animated that isnt the mouse is pretty horrible

k... Just saying, teamviewer has a mobile option too that makes checking render progress a breeze even with less than perfect data connection.

He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.
