Subject: Alternatives To VNC... (Backup Remote Access)



Can anyone suggest an alternate, secure, reliable remote connection 


Though my Dad has broadband, I'm still on dialup, with few other options

at present.  VNC works quite acceptably with dialup (slow, but 
survivable), and I'd like to find something else that was usable over 
dialup (PCNow is slow as death).

In my line of work, I often need to dial up to view the desktop of 
remote machines (WinNT to WinXPe) on our equipment.  We use both VNC 
and pcAnywhere, but I actually prefer to use TELNET, because it's text-
based and uses about 0.1% of the bandwidth used by desktop viewers.  
That said, more often than not, I still need to see the desktop, as do 
U when U or your Dad want to see what the other sees.  U have to pay 
for pcAnywhere, but I think it's worth it as a backup method.
