Other alternatives
Authored by: msilverman on Sep 19, '05 12:23:08PM

Since somebody mentioned Microsoft's Remote Desktop, let me throw in for Timbuktu as an alternative solution. If you have the money to spend on a commerical product, I would recommend looking into Timbuktu, by Netopia. It is not free, but it is much faster then VNC and has a lot more remote control and security features and it may be worth looking in to if you need to use remote control frequently.

Or to look at it another way, VNC is to Timbuktu what vi is to BBEdit -- both do the same thing, but they are still a bit different in how they go about it :-)
