I've been a long time user of pcAnywhere, more recently bought LapLink 2000 
and have tried out VNC and Radmin. All of this has been between two WIN 
98SE computers running on a 10/100 BaseT ethernet network.

The reason for all the struggles was that pcAnywhere was both slow and a 
memory hog. LapLink is somewhat faster and seemed to use less resources. 
VNC was a nice improvement on LapLink in terms of speed and resource usage. 
I've recently tried Radmin and been very impressed with its speed and sadly 
disappointed with its lack of stability. I've now "scampered" back to VNC 
and plan to stay here.

Thank you VNC people, wherever you may be!


BTW, Radmin was noticeably faster that all but VNC - in the case of VNC, it 
was only slightly faster.
