Today, almost all of us need a computer; we use it for entertainment, work and accessing and storing information. However bringing a computer along with all its stored information can be very risky and some people are not even allowed to do this. A couple of years back only people who work in places with sensitive information like the Police, CIA and the bank are able to have access to their PCs and databases. But today, due to the advances of technology, almost everyone who has a PC can access it remotely. Now there are PC Access Programs that allow the average joe to easily access their personal computer from anywhere with an Internet Access.
PC Access Software along with an Internet connection gives the user complete access to their home computer or Corporate Network. There are many ways to get connected. As long as you have Remote Access Software installed on both the Portable Computer and the Network you are accessing. A connection can be made through 6 different ways:
1. Standard dial up internet connection
2. Wireless connection
3. Cable internet connection,
4. An integrated services digital network (ISDN)
The first 5 ways are standard accessing patterns and are usually not that secure since anyone can hack your PC from anywhere if they know the access codes.
6. Dedicated Fixed Line
The 6th way is the most secure way of accessing your corporate network or computer. The dedicated fixed line is a line that connects directly to the corporate network on one end and exclusively to your home computer or laptop only. Overall, Remote PC Access comes with a world of advantages: it allows the network administrators to take control of any PC on the LAN, which enables them to fix a computer, however far away it might be located. Then, as a part of support and helpdesk teams, you can easily ask for help on software-related problems and they can fix it remotely. As a consultant, you can become a hero to your customers by fixing the problems, sitting in your office, without spending time and money on traveling. And lastly, the pleasure and security of sitting at the comfort of your home, enjoying coffee and accessing all the files you need from your office PC. Aah, the wonders of technology!
