  1. Hello,

    Can anyone tell me a software that works just like remote desktop? I need a free software that lets me control my other computer that is not on my home network through the internet. Ant help is greatly appreciated...

    UltraVNC. Softremote.

    Sorry, I've never gotten them to work, personally, but I know other people have used them with much success.

    I've been using mostly TightVNC or Remote Desktop when administering remote Windows machines, and normal SSH terminal (without X forwarding) when administering Linux machines.
