A useful little tool for anyone who does business on the move can be found at LogMeIn.
The basis of this application is that it allows you to log in to your home or work computer remotely from anywhere in the world, provided you have left the computer you want to access turned on and operational.

To get the free application just click Get Started. Registration is quick and no sensitive personal details are required - just an email address and password.

Once logged in you can start adding computers to access.

The process is made incredibly simple by clear, step-by-step instructions. I will not belabour the point as it is not a very visually inspiring process.

You need to choose the 30-day trial of the full software first and, at the end of the trial period, convert it into the free version if you do not want to pay.

This does involve a download on to the computer you want to access. That puts a piece of software on to your hard drive that allows you to connect to it remotely.

Obviously one has to consider security when looking at an application like this. For a full rundown of what they call "bulletproof security", read up on the link you can access from the opening page.

Once installed, you can remote-access this computer from the website login page.
It will require an ActiveX controller to be installed on the PC you are accessing it from, so make sure you have permission from the computer's owner.

Then you can choose "file transfer" to synchronise folders, "click" to share files too large for email, or "remote control", which opens the remote PC desktop within your browser window.
It is a brilliant idea and so easy to use.

Unfortunately it does not work in any of the alternative browsers I have tried it in, so you will have to stick to Internet Explorer to make use of it.

I saw this site on BBC and absolutely fell in love with it. There are times, when I want to access my work computer from home, and this site really comes in handy. Its VNC webized!
