Hi Corni Beerse,
I need to use it for remote support of my customers, who have NO idea what a
router is or even if they have one. Most have an SBC or earthlink DSL
service (dynamic IP addresses).
I have tried PcAnywhere, but can not connect if not installed or setup
properly at the customer's end, since most customers are almost computer
illiterates (I am just a little bit better than they are, LOL); they just
know how to use one or two programs on their computers and have no idea how
it works, so far I don't have much success with PcAnywhere.
I need something that will be easy to install on the customer's end and
secure on both ends, security is a requirement due to the nature of data
involved. (I am behind a firewall appliance).
Thanks for your help.
