LogMeIn Security

If we’ve set you up to be able to access one or more of your computers remotely (a service we can provide for free in most cases), and you’ve gone through the process of setting up your LogMeIn password, you will access your remote computers by going to www.logmein.com and entering your user name and password as the first level of security. At that site you will be presented with a list of the computer(s) to which you have access.

Once you’ve selected the computer to which you want to connect, LogMein may prompt you for a computer access code:

If you know and use such a code, enter it here. If you more typically (or exclusively) use the remote computer’s username and password at this step, click on the More button, and you will be prompted for those:

Once you’ve entered either your computer access code or your username and password (the second level of security) for the remote computer, you will be presented with the computer as it is at that time. That is: if the remote computer is logged in and the Desktop is displayed, you will see that. If the computer is logged off (or locked) you will be presented with that screen, at which you will need to enter your user name and/or password just as you would if you were sitting in front of the computer (the third level of security).

The next step: using the remote computer!

You may also want to try this remote desktop connection http://www.ammyy.com or http://unvc.com

The first Ammyy Admin v3 is a bit easier as it doesn’t require installation, registration and specific settings adjustments. It works behind gateways NAT without port mapping.

Good alternative though.
