Remote Control of Your PC Via the Web


It's like taking your desktop on the road.

GoToMyPC is a secure and easy way to access your computer from any browser-equipped computer anywhere in the world. Once your computer is enabled, you can access it at any time from anywhere by logging in to the GoToMyPC Web site. You have full control of the computer and all files, programs and network resources available on the machine. You simply work on your PC as if you were sitting in front of it, even though you may be thousands of miles away.

This is a great tool for dashboarders. You can work on your computer remotely or transfer files between the computer you're using and the one you're accessing. Unlike conventional remote control software or VPN solutions (virtual private networks), GoToMyPC doesn't require you to fiddle with port settings, IP addresses or complicated software and hardware installations. Setup takes only 2 minutes. And it even works behind corporate firewalls.

The only requirement is that your computer must be left on and connected to the Internet in order to access it remotely. GoToMyPC can only be used with Windows PCs for now, but MAC and Linux versions are expected in the future. GoToMyPC uses 128-bit end-to-end encryption plus multiple password challenges to ensure security.
