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.
