Jump desktop is a bit pricy ($20), but it's vnc/rdp was plug & play with 4 computers, even on the corporate network. Intuitive controls. As a bonus, it has a free desktop to desktop viewer that comes in the desktop software. Use it to use my home computer to log into work. Recommended by my IT guy.

Got the free version of spashtop to work fine. As soon as I upgraded,haven't been able to connect. Also,didn't realize splash top doesn't work if I'm not on the same network. What's up with that? Help
I checked out the jump desktop and it really seemed to be what I'm looking for. Seems worth the $20
Splashtop is only for local, same network connections, correct?
Splashtop works when your on another network but for Windows PC's only. I tried it while on my mobile hotspot and it worked well.
Ohhh, well maybe someday. Thanks
If you do not have W7, or don't want to use that, you still can get access from outside your home network (work is probably a no go as you need to modify the firewall, and most businesses are not so big on that
First - get a dynamic dns service (do a search on dynamic dns). I use dyndns.org. Works great. You'll get a domain name to use
Then, in your local firewall you have to setup port forwarding. I believe the default ports that splashtop uses is 6873-6875. Set the firewall to forward those ports to the desktop with splashtop. I imagine if you have more than one, you can setup different ports for each, but I only have the one machine so haven't tested it.
It works perfectly fine, although takes a bit of work if you've never done it before.
Thanks for the input. I'm on a Mac. I've got VNC loaded which gets me connected at work. I just can't connect to my desktop at home for some reason. Thought maybe Splash would do it for me. I'll keep tryin'
splashtop is introducing internet logins now
