Today’s Byte is courtesy of my Dad, who is a big GoToMyPC user. His computer at work uses a lot of monitoring software that he doesn’t have or want at home. Specifically he has cameras around work that feed into his desktop monitoring. To see what’s going on from home, he logs into his desktop at work using GoToMyPC (https://www.gotomypc.com/).
I know he’s been very happy with it and often uses it as a remote server for shared files. It’s $20 per month for each computer you want to see.
There are a couple of similar products that are out there for free (such as LogMeIn https://secure.logmein.com) but I don’t have any experience with them.
