helpful software for remote access/control of your computer


Recommended Posts

These are a few bits of software that I've been using for quite a while and found very useful. All of these are free for non-commercial use.

  • Teamviewer-- This software allows for remote control and file transfer of your PC (or anyone else who's installed the software) -- helpful for remote work, or for providing remote tech support.

  • Tonido -- Turn your PC into your own personal cloud. This software allows you to access all your drives/files on your PC, stream your music from your hard drive, and even share files with friends directly from your desktop without having to upload.

  • PC Monitor -- mobile phone app that allows you to shut down/restart your PC. Required download of PC software in order for it to work.

I've wanted to set that up here, but not sure how to get it to work. The only time I sucessfully created a link (and was able to use my phone to turn on my computer) was when it was on my wifi connection. I've not been able to get it to where i can turn it on from work if I forget to turn it on before I leave.


Currently have a Netgear WGR614 router - not sure if there is anything I can do with it to make it work better (or if I just should buy a new N band router).
