Ever need to view someone’s screen across the internet? Perhaps you work with someone that’s remote to you?
If so, you should check out Teamviewer, which is free to use for personal purposes, but if you want to use it for work, there is a fee. Unlike traditional VNC:
- it’s secure
- doesn’t have to be installed on either the host or guest machine (it’s a self-contained program)
- is really easy to use
Here’s how it work. You and your friend download the software and run it. If you’re going to connect to your friend’s machine, he or she tells you their teamviewer code (which is displayed right on the screen) and then the password. You enter that information and press connect, and that’s it. No fuss, no muss.
The teamviewer code is usually the same for any one computer, but the password changes each time the software is run.
There are a number of other features. Go check out the website.
