Sharing desktop is a big part of my everyday work actually Remote desktop helps me a lot in building communication process between me and my clients from different places of the world.When I provide remote help or instruct someone on the distance I can show everything visually and we can operate the same documents. That’s very handy. And Techinline was my best solution because the price is lovely;)

techline is It’s too complex or spontaneous remote desktop connections.
Out of the list teamviewer is the best, but IT’s not FREE for commercial use :(

Alternatively you may want to check out Aeroadmin – this one is totally free for both home and business users and as simple as 1-2-3..

Logmein, TeamViewer etc. are quality remote support software’s. Additionally, one can even consider deploying premise remote support appliance such as RHUB or Bomgar appliances in order to remotely access computers from anywhere.

I switched from LogMeIn to TeamViewer several years ago but I decided that I needed to look at recent reviews to reevaluate. So by a hair, I’m sticking with TV.

I used TeamViewer for year and still use the personal version. At the office we use ScreenConnect.

I use Ultr@VNC at work and TeamViewer for personal use.
What other free applications do you suggest to use at office?
Thanks.

Ammyy is better than all the listed above…..as Team Viewer’s free version has 5 to 10 minutes session limit. And you can not do file transfer and remote session simultaneously with Team Viewer……

I totally agree with Ernesto. Ammyy is the best….
