Need safe, sensible solution for remote access.

Q: Need safe, sensible solution for remote access.

Hello all,
I am the network administrator at our local volunteer FD & RS. Let me re-phrase that. I am the one who seems to be the most knowledgable person regarding computers so I was nominated to be administrator. I won't even pretend to be an actual administrator. I currently have our 3 pc's running XP Pro networked very well. They're talking and doing what they're supposed to. We have cable broadband leading to a Linksys router leading to the Dell server. All PC's are domained to the server. The powers that be purchased the dell server in an effort to get up to speed with the rest of the world and so now I'm teaching myself Active directory & users, etc... Not bad so far but I have not rolled it out yet so we'll see and that's another thread for another day.
Anyway, I want to go one step further and setup remote access for the members so that they can do paperwork from their homes. Time is critical for everyone since we are all volunteer and very busy with our own lives. While researching a solution, I came across the NetGear SSL312 VPN concentrator which according to specs will allow users to either connect to VPN or use applications through an Active X process that runs in the browser. I called NetGear and their tech support could not tell me if the 312 would work well for what I want to do. Here is my requirement so that you might be able to suggest a common sense solution:
We have 1 program that is application specific for us (firehouse software) that I want some members to be able to access from home. I also want them to be able to use MS Word or Excel if they don't have it at home. Keep in mind that many of our members are not very computer literate so I want to make it as safe (and simple for me to administer) as possible. For me it's easy to connect. Since we have a static ip address, I just use remote desktop and/or VPN connection to access our server and then go to any of the 3 pc's from there. I really don't want to have members setting up VPN's and having access to the entire network as administrators. If anyone could offer me a sensible solution to simplify a multiple remote user interface for my members I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

HI
 
My trusting husband fell for the scam where a pop up window told him that there was a problem with his computer and to call a number pretending to be Microsoft. He called them and gave them remote access to our computer. He  paid the $300.00 to fix the problem. Of course it was not Microsoft he was talking to. It was a "company" called ProTekt. I came home right after the computer had to be rebooted. At the point that I came in stopzilla (presumably)  was waiting to be installed and the mouse curser was moving around the screen. I immediately turned off the computer. The person he was dealing with started calling and have called a few times since but I have not picked it up. We immediately drove to a safe computer (30 min drive) to reset all important account passwords. I called my credit card company and have also put a fraud alert with all credit reporting agencies. I disconnected the computer from the internet and took a look at what they did:
 
They uninstalled my virus software and installed what appears to have been support.com , wisecare, malwarebytes and total uninstall 6 and stopzilla software. They also seemed to erase all my foxfire settings. They created an  "old firefox" floder.  Who knows what they really loaded. I had previously been dealing with some drive errors that were preventing me from creating or using restore points. This is one reason my husband fell for the scam. He knew we had been having problems. Anyway I decided... Read more

A:Scammers got remote access how safe am I now?

  You did a clean rollback?  Meaning restoring Windows OS to the before-the-phone-call state, correct?  If so, you're probably ok from that vantage point.  Did you also change your modem/router hardwire & wireless access password[s]?
  What kind of backup images are you making?  I'm hoping you are making OS-partition images and data partition images onto at least one if not two usb external hard-drives - at least bi-monthly.

I got a pop up that was loud and wouldn't let me close it saying, "your computer has been infected call Microsoft" and I did because I turned it off and it was still yelling st me when I turned it back on. I gave the tech remote access and he said I had a tiny something trojan virus. Well I didn't fall for paying, got off the phone, held power button down and turned computer off. Am able to use it fine now with no more warning but am I safe after giving the remote access? I was on the phone for about 30 mins while he was going around to different areas in my computer telling me what all of the "problems" were.

It wasn't Microsoft, it was a scam.   I suggest you have a look here and create a new post asking for assistance to ensure your computer has not been compromised .

Hi guys,

i have a question about remote connection, but i don't know exactly what kind of solution i'm looking for...

i have a desktop with quad-cpu and much bigger memory, and i have another laptop which is old and slow. My thinking is to make a server on the desktop, so that the laptop could share the cpu time and memory from desktop.

That is to say: there could be two persons in front of both computers, they log in using own username and they should not interrupt each others work, but all the programs should run on the desktop computer.

So Remote Desktop, VNC or TeamViewer etc. don't really match my needs...

I don't really know what we call this technology, but i know that citrix have this kind of business solution, what i wanna know is if there are any usable free or inexpensive solutions for personal/non-commercial use?

Thanks a lot!

Btw., my desktop is running Windows 7 Pro 64bit and Laptop is running Windows XP Pro 32bit.

A:Which Solution: Remote Desktop? Virtual Desktop? Remote Terminal?

There may be alternatives to Citrix, but the concept is basically to access a remote desktop on server where you run applications installed on server. If the performance is adequate you will gain in bandwidth and licensing costs, but the scenario you describe implies that the laptop should somehow share the resources of the server, physically(?)...

I am currently unaware of any inexpensive "citrix" solutions but I would think that is what you are after. Logging on the server, starting an app on server, but managing it on the laptop.

Have you looked in to a HDD and RAM upgrade of the Laptop?

Hello,

I want suggestions for the best free VNC software. I need to have the following :

1. Be able to log in to the remote system, without logging out the local user. So the remote user is able to see the screen and all the mouse movements. The mouse/keyboard control can be with remote/local/both users. (Unlike Microsoft Remote Desktop, in which the local user is logged out when the remote deskop user logs in). Needed for remote tutorials / guidance.

2. Ability to have multiple users log in to the same remote machine with their own defined workspaces/desktops. Just like in giving a server access to multiple remote students. They can have limited rights as not to modify crtical systems settings simultaneously.

Also please suggest that for my intended scenario is it better to have a group of independent virtual machines (maybe running on the same physical machine) in order to have more flexibility and better management.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Hi all,

I am looking for some advice no a remote desktop solution to help me if/when my mum has PC problems (not that uncommon haha).

I am currently running 64bit Windows 7 Home Premium and my mum is still running Windows XP Home edition. This will be done over the Internet as we live about 3 hours drive away from eachother.

I believe there are problems (or it just doesn't work) using Windows Remote Desktop into her PC, so thought I would ask about it here.

Anyone know of a good solution, preferably something that is relatively simple to setup. I want to be able to access her desktop so when a problem comes up and I remote in to fix and show her what to do. Thats a lot easier than trying to talk her through it on the phone, her describing the windows she sees (as I can't recall all the XP stuff from memory) then my trying to explain what to do!

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Hello!
I have Quickbooks Pro on my computer- individual license, downloaded (not CD).
I now need to collaborate with 2 colleagues entering information.
I have no problem with buying a multiple license, but my problem is allowing everyone to enter data without wiping out each others' information (R enters receipts, C enters expenses).
Someone suggested I use LogMeIn and have them enter directly onto my computer...which sounds great but I don't really want them to see EVERYTHING on my computer.

So...here is my question.
a) should I buy a new computer, move QBPro to it, and then get them to use LogMeIn?
(if so, pardon my ignorance, but having downloaded QBPro, is it possible to move it?? I have no CD for QBPro..)
b) is there some other way that buying them their own license I can import data from them without erasing my own?

Thanks. I am very much a beginner and am pretty hesitant to move on this.
 

A:Quickbooks pro- Remote User- Best solution?

Sorry- have another thing to add. One colleague suggested I move the QB files to a website, which she could then access. I have no idea if such a thing would be possible. Sounds like the on-line version of QB which if I am not wrong would end up at $25/mo costing much more than a new computer?

I asked a question in another thread wanting to know if there were any good free alternatives to programs PCAnywhere or GoToMyPC. Boy did I ever get more than I expected in TeamViewer that EAFiedler suggested.

Now I have a technical question about how TeamViewer works. It connects to remote systems across the internet not by an IP number that I enter but rather by an arbitrary nine-digit number assigned to the system when the program is set up. It connects so quickly that I know it cannot be scanning every IP address on the 'net looking for a TeamViewer connection at every one of them. So, I have deduced that there must be a server out there somewhere that stores TeamViewer information.

Does anyone know enough about this to confirm this and/or explain it to me somewhat?

Hello, finally upgraded to Windows 7, bought a Lenovo x230, ultrabase docking, Dell 24" eIPS ((1900x1200), Lenovo Keyboard/mouse and a couple questions have come up related to this new setup and hopefully someone out there has a lot of knowledge/have similar setups...please help with your advice/opinion...

1. It is a bit of an adjustment getting used to the 24" screen, I'm sure eventually I'll get used to it/like this setup more, but something that concerns me is that even on the lowest height adjustment, I am at eye level at about 3/4ths the screen, I've read conflicting reports that it could cause neck strain/potential long term problems by looking up (I spend a lot of the time on the computer and on the internet so usually the browser tabs are on the top row of the screen). I've also read that 3/4ths is actually okay for big monitors like mine because you don't want to look down at too much of an angle, anyone experienced/any advice on this? I am at just about arms length from monitor.

2. I was thinking since I have a docking station, is there a way to turn on my computer with a remote (not talking about waking up from sleep)? Also, a remote would come in handy when I'm eating/watching a video to switch videos/pause/search without opening up keyboard tray/using messy fingers.

I was thinking of keeping my battery unattached until I know I am going to be leaving somewhere. That could cause my computer to shut off if power is lost which might happen a couple times a year, but I was thinking that may be worth not killing the battery, any thoughts/advice?


Leaving the battery in while charging for most of its life will not harm it. The only factor that will cause it harm is heat, but a properly designed battery will not have any issue being constantly charged. Lithium-ion batteries like the one in your laptop, have no memory they don't require discharge cycles like other batteries.

Even still your battery will die in time no matter what you do, it will die that is part of its life, most last around a year or two.

Hey guys, got a question about driver software.

From my experience, most driver update software is a scam, and should be avoided. But a friend showed me DriverPack Solution. He said he uses it at work (in an IT department) and it works well.

This software scans your PC and tells you what drivers need to be updated. I was skeptical at first, but decided to give it a try. It's a large download - 3GBs. On my newly built PC, it found a couple outdated drivers, and successfully updated them. In fact, it solved a problem I had.

Before, for some reason, my PC wouldn't go to Sleep mode. I don't know what drivers changed this, but DriverPack fixed the problem .

That being said, has anybody used this software? Have you had any problems with it?

A:DriverPack Solution - safe?

I know it. I never used the software itself, but I use the DriverPacks, open source packs of drivers that the above uses to do its job, and I use to install stuff without having to hunt for an obscure device driver on the net for hours.
Download, unzip, tell Windows to search the driver for the unknown device in that folder, let it do the leg work of finding the right one and bam! driver loaded.

Doesn't always find the driver (heh nothing is perfect), but does cut down wasted time by a bunch.

I've just spent two days of my life with no sleep pulling my hair out trying to solve this problem. After spending $245 for Microsoft live support, I learned that it was a bug in Vista. I search everywhere on the net to find a solution and never found it, so I felt it was my duty, as a person who has previously benefited from others' postings, to post it here. Anyway, enough introduction.

Problem description:

Microsoft Access any version - EVEN 2007
Operating system is Vista (pretty sure all versions, I tested on two versions)

Create an access application, split the database. Put the front-end on two computers and the back-end on one computer -- link both to the same backend.
ONLY ONE USER CAN OPEN A BOUND FORM AT A TIME in this multiuser environment!

Note that you will notice that the computer that "owns" the backend can open and close forms regardless of what the other computers are doing. But, all other computers are locked out if anyone else is using the database.

This is a BUG in Vista. The current "work around" is to add a registry key and all is well:

Run regedit and find the path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters

add a DWORK (32-bit) key with a value of zero

I resolved my issue of not being able to boot in Safe Mode. A normal full boot was never a problem, only Safe Mode boot. Many threads on the net point to a corrupt file namely Classpnp.sys as the culprit. I'm guessing many people believe this as the BSOD occurs immediately after the loading of this system file. I don't believe Classpnp.sys is the issue but simply a co-incidence because this .sys file is actually the last driver/system file to load before the Safe Mode boot process continues to the next boot stage, ie. BSOD caused by some safe mode boot up action after Classpnp.sys has successfully loaded.

I gave up on a quick resolution of the problem & decided to carry out a full re-install of my Windows OS. After re-installing the OS successfully I then went about finding what Windows update, program installation, etc. caused the re-occurance of the Safe Mode BSOD. I installed a couple of programs at a time then re-booted trying Safe Mode. The same thing with the Windows updates. Eventually I found the culprit - EASEUS TO DO BACKUP VERSION 5!!!!!!

So, if you have this program installed try uninstalling it to see if your Safe Mode BSOD dissapears.

Hope this solution works for others. If I recieve positive responses I'll write to Easeus to inform them that their V5 is corrupt (& perhaps tell them hat I think !)

Best of luck!

Hello.

For the last couple of weeks my computer has been having some... interesting problems. It started with the computer freezing roughly one or two minutes after reaching the desktop upon turning on. Sometimes the desktop would be tinted a very light blue, but this wasn't too consistent and didn't seem to appear unless my background was visible.This was typically resolved by going into safe mode and restarting my computer from there. I've tried virus and malware scans several times but neither seems to have resolved the issue. Aside from some stuff in a Chrome folder (which I rarely use) there was nothing out of the ordinary.

Lately, instead of freezing, the computer has been BSoDing. When it attempts to restart automatically from the BSoD windows is incapable of starting normally (and using the windows repair tool doesn't seem to do anything but lead to the freeze/BSoD issue already existing); it cites that Windows is unable to start and BSoDs.

The baffling thing is that starting my computer after having it run in safe mode seems to resolve all issues and cause the computer to start normally. I can't imagine a single issue that could be resolved this way, or even why that would help, but given that the problem is growing steadily worse/does not appear to be abating no matter what I try, I felt I should ask you guys.

Could it be a virus or rootkit? Is my hardware failing? I'm completely lost.

Hello all,
 
To get straight to the point, I have an Asus G74SX-XR1. It's got an Nvidia GeForce 560M video card. I use this computer for my karaoke business. After one night everything was fine, but then I tried to turn on my computer the next day and I got to the "starting windows" screen but then at login I got black screened. Naturally I thought a driver problem, so I went into safe mode (screen works) and tried different drivers but none of them allowed me to see the normal windows startup. 
 
I thought, ok, I just want and need a working computer, So I decided to upgrade and go to an SSD. I installed it and decided to reformat. Well upon reformatting, I still get the same problem!!! No login screen. The backlight is on but as soon as the finish setup screen appears I lose any graphics on the screen. Please help! Urgent!
 
EDIT: External VGA monitor works fine. Only laptop display doesn't. It's not the display/screen because it shows the post and starting windows perfectly.

A:Black screen at login, works in safe mode, done research no solution found

If your laptop display is only working in Safe mode, that means you have a driver issue, or you have it set to only use an external monitor.  You can go into the bios and set it to use only the laptop LCD.  Unhook the second monitor from the unit.  Also when you get into Safe mode, uninstall both the monitor & GPU drivers, along with any associated software for the Graphics chipset and monitor.
 
When windows boots back up, it will find and load the default Microsoft or manufacturer drivers for your machine.  Now of course, you can boot back into Safe mode, and install the drivers downloaded from the manufacturer website for your machine.  NVidia has been having issues with their drivers, both for Windows & Linux, so do not download from their site, the generic drivers for your GPU.

Client notebook (Inspiron 1520, Vista 32 sp 1)- apparently the notebook crashed during a windows update install, now Vista will not install any updates. I was told that initially it wouldn't boot afterwards, but client also stated he "fixed the hard drive and it worked for a day". Then he got a error that prevented logon 'Interactive logon process has failed. Please consult event log for more details'. I fixed that using a Vista boot disc and selecting "Repair". Not exactly sure what the cause was, but likely related to the Update crash.
There's no personal data on the notebook to save, so I decided a factory image restore would fix the errors (already tried SFC, no issues. Don't want to attempt to reload bootsec). Easy peasy, right?

I need internet access at my shop that does not have broadband available in the area. I have verizon phone service and get service there but it is not a very strong signal (like 1 or 2 bars at best of 4g, switches to 3g alot as well). I was wondering if the antenna's that area available actually work for boosting the signal.. and if so what device can I get then that will use Verizon's network for internet access and work with a router, so the devices in the shop will use verizon's internet connection through the router.

thanks!

When I first installed my hp deskjet F4280 all in one printer I had no problem accessing the solution center to get into the settings. I deleted all the other stuff that came along with it and everything was ok. I am running low on the colored ink and wanted to go in to the solution center to set it to print black and white and I keep getting a message that there are no hp devices recognized, so I cant get into the solution center. I uninstalled the printer and everything I could find that was hp related and reinstalled everything again and I still cant get into the solution center. I still keep getting the message that there are no hp devices recognized. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on how I can sort this out.

I can connect to a win 2000 server with remote desktop connection. Is there a way I can reboot into safe mode remotely and can I connect back to the server while it is running in safe mode?

If not, is there another vnc program that would allow me to do this?

thanks!
 

A:safe mode with remote desktop connection?

Actually there is a way to do it through the boot ini.

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=239780

All you have to do is copy the loading add another line with the safe mode switches you desire and then in there make that the default one for the next reboot.

I have never tried to RDC into a safe mode running computer though I don't know if the windows RDC services start in safe mode. As far as a program that does this automatically I have not seen one.

I've been in the hunt to try to find a solution to Verizon's decision late last year to block access to customer's Personal Web Space via File Transfer Protocol (FTP).

I've read through a number of these postings regarding the change in the functionality of FTP, as a means for accessing and/or deleting files from a customer's Personal Web Space, and both the original decision and the subsequent process that only allows customers to delete files from their Personal Web Space, seems totally unsatisfactory.

I've come to the conclusion that maybe Verizon customers should consider banding together and engaging in a little social activism and try to organize an Internet-based petition, to try to get this decision from back in August reversed. This effort at social activism was recently effective both in getting Bank of America to reverse their ill-advised $5 debit card fee, and even more recently in getting Verizon to reverse their even more ill-advised $2 "convenience fee", for customers who pay their bills online directly through Verizon’s web interface. Since reversing this decision is likely a virtually no-expense programming change to unblock the prior FTP account access, I think we should go for it.

To that end, I've already staged an online petition for others to review and sign. Please consider forwarding this link anyone else who you believe might be inclined to endorse this petition request. Thanks!

Hi,I am a parent of a teen who goes to a large school (almost 3000 students). Last year, I started sending out a weekly email to some of the parents with a list of the events at the school.The way I collected this data was time-consuming. I downloaded and printed calendars for each sport and club that I could and put them in a binder. Each week I would find the events for the upcoming event and type it into a word document. Then I would visit the school's website and check the announcements and counselors' web pages for events and add them to the word document. I copied the word document into an email message and sent it out in batches. (I had less than 125 email addresses.) The people who got the email liked it and the school wants to expand the list. We are looking at Constant Contact as an option. (If anyone has an opinion on that, I would like it!)Here is short sample of what I would send out:THIS WEEK?S CALENDAR:Monday, 5/3:-2:45 PM, Student Council Meeting-6:00 PM, Special-called Board Meeting: Spotlight Awards-7:00 PM, Dazzler Booster Club MeetingTuesday, 5/4:-6:30 PM, Auto Tech Awards Night, Commons Wednesday, 5/5:-5:30 PM to 9:30 PM, AFJROTC Pot Luck Dinner and Awards Program...THIS WEEK?S ATHLETICS:BASEBALLThursday, 5/6:-7:00 PM, Varsity vs Georgetown High School at Georgetown (2211 N.

A:Would Access or Excel be a better solution to this problem?

I think I have decided that the best way to do this is through a Word document.

I just made a long document that is one page per week (inserted page breaks). I had the days of the week written out along the left margin followed by a page break, and copied and pasted it to the bottom of the document about forty times. Went back in and added dates chronologically beginning with next week's dates. Saved that document as a master and then saved again as master athletic schedule. (It is easier to keep the two separate.)

So, instead of searching schedules and websites for info the the upcoming weeks, I'll input the scheduled items onto the master schedule, a sport, club or fine art organization at a time. I hope that won't take too long.

Then, when it comes time to send the email, I'll do a check to see if there is anything new or that has changed, and then copy the info from the master document and paste into the email.

Wanted some advice before I do something that can't be undone...

Client notebook (Inspiron 1520, Vista 32 sp 1)- apparently the notebook crashed during a windows update install, now Vista will not install any updates. I was told that initially it wouldn't boot afterwards, but client also stated he "fixed the hard drive and it worked for a day". Then he got a error that prevented logon 'Interactive logon process has failed. Please consult event log for more details'. I fixed that using a Vista boot disc and selecting "Repair". Not exactly sure what the cause was, but likely related to the Update crash.

There's no personal data on the notebook to save, so I decided a factory image restore would fix the errors (already tried SFC, no issues. Don't want to attempt to reload bootsec). Easy peasy, right? Welllll....The Startup Repair is apparently gone- When I select "Repair your Computer" from the options it boots to the desktop instead, and doing a hard reset to get the Repair or Load Normally option, when I select Repair the screen blinks and goes right back to the Option menu (Repair or Load Normally).

Now, this is a Dell and it has a Recovery partition, and it works, if I could just get to the Recovery Console, which doesn't. It doesn't have Dell Datasafe Local Backup 2.0 installed, or it was removed by the client.

Hi all,

This is just an interesting problem I discovered and resolved that I don't understand--but if someone else has it, perhaps this will help.

For the past few days, I have been unable to access my Home Page, which is www.comcast.net from IE.6.0.28. It appears that the site get's accessed, but then gets redirected--and IE sits there working and working, with lots of fast messages flashing on the screen in the lower left (where the status is displayed)--but eventually I have to STOP the access.

I could access the site from the same computer, using Netscape--or from a different computer on my same home network using IE.

I was going through the instructions to post a HiJack this log, thinking I had some sort of trojan or virus. One of the steps is to run Stinger. When I launched it, I noticed on the Stinger window, Scan initiated on Friday, May 26, 2006. OPPS, it is not May 26--it is March 26. A quick check, and sure enough my computer was on the wrong date. (I had looked at the calendar and accidently reset the time.)

I reset the clock and date, and just for laughs, went back to www.comcast.net. And it now worked!

I can't for the life of me understand why Comcast would care about what date I have set in my 'puter--nor why it only seems to matter when accessing the site from IE.

Any thoughts or comments!

Thanks
Denny from Minnesota

i have access 97 set up, with a simple database (actually, it doesnt matter if i have a dtabase set up, i still get this problem). Its got a few tables in it, and one report.

The problem arises when i try to do anything with the report. I can quite happily design the form, but i can't print preview or preview it.

Whenever you try to print preview anything, access throws the error : "access cant print or preview because the page size is greater than 22.75 inches."

this happens irrespective of the number of rows in the database and the size of the actual report.

the page has been set to A4 standard. Same error.

this is really starting to annoy me (i need these reports dammit!). Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks again to everyone who has given me help.

I need a very simple way to only search a particular year's records in the tables I am working with.

The database is for an event that occurs annually and is used to store the information on the participants. In the past, my boss would copy and paste the previous year's database and then delete the data and start from scratch. I convinced her that she should stop doing this and just keep adding records (I added a new field "year") so that she can do some of the metrics she now has to get by going into each year's databases and dumping the data she needs into Excel.

I was hired because she really doesn't understand Access and she doesn't have time to learn. While I think of myself as a beginner, compared to her, I have a Ph.D. in Access.

Right now we only have 2 years worth of data in the database but even now it's becoming cumbersome to search using the "Find" option. I need something really simple she can do (like running a macro) that would give her only a particular year's worth of records to search through and not the entire table.

Thanks again in advance for your help,

My father-in-law lives miles away, and unfortunately is being charged a fortune by a company to simply install the latest version of Mozilla Firefox (he has paid them once, and now the new version is available they have told him he will need to uninstall the old version and install the new version, they tried to talk him through this on the phone (at peak rate) and did such a blinding job that it doesn't work at all now). I was wondering if there is anyway to access his pc remotely (I'm on Vista, he's on XP if that makes any difference), so that I can uninstall and download the newer version. Obviously, i have seen remote access in offices before, but wasn't sure if there was a way I could do this (obviously with his permisssion first)?

Again, apologies if this is in the wrong place and thank you in advance of any advice you may have.

Carla

A:Remote Access

You would need remote access software. It would have to be setup first. If your father in law can't, with support, uninstall and install software, this is something you will need to do personally onsite.

Suggested softwares;

teamviewer
logmein

An elderly friend of mine runs a business out of her house and when she was away, her partner came to her house and installed something on her computer so she could monitor what she was doing from her own computer. I'm assuming it's something like 'Go to my pc' etc.
She's running windows xp and isn't sure what to do. Before I look at her computer I wanted to ask for opinions in case there is some kind of stealth software installed that would be difficult to find and uninstall.

Thanks,

Dave

I'm trying to access my computer at work from home and I'm receiving the following error message:

"The client could not connect to the remote computer. Remote connections might not be enabled or the computer might be too busy to accept new connections. It is also possible that network problems are preventing your connection. Please try your connection again later. If the problem continues to occur, contact your administrator."

When I spoke to my IT person, they said to got to the remote tab and check off both boxes, but no luck. They said they were able to access my work computer from their laptop so the issue was definitely with my computer at home.

Check the firewall settings of the computer you are trying to log into.

I would like to be able to connect to 3 different computers at three different locations remotely to administer some documents. The 3 computers are not networked although they are connected to the internet through a wired router.

Is there free software available that would enable me to do this? If not is there software i can purchase and can anyone provide a recommendation?

I know there are many different ways to have remote access. Right now my remote offices access my unix server through telnet with an emulation software over a hardware vpn connection (two linksys vpn routers). Well, we upgraded our medical software to a windows version and I love it. But now we are ready for the full install. To access the program remotely I just need access to it's executible file through a mapped drive or such. The software manufacturer recomends using terminal server. But why can't I just set up my server (running server 2003 enterprise) as a vpn server and access from my two sattelite offices that way? Can anyone recommend a good tutorial on terminal server set-up? I have two remote offices with two workstations at one office and three workstations at the other. I just want to use the easiest method. Any input would be great.

Hi everyone. I have a friend that has downloaded a rogue anti-virus program and I would like to help her remotely. Our OS are Windows 7. My concern is will the virus latch on to my PC? Any help will be appreciated. deanie44

A:Remote Access

It's possible. But, if you know the name of the virus/trojan and you read up on it and take precautions (antivirus/antitrojan software running and up to date) you should be relatively safe.

Hi you guys. I have a quick question. I work for a company that uses QuickBooks Pro. They are thinking about the possibility of me working from my home, since I too have QB Pro. That sounds great, right? Well, there is a problem. Normally, I would back up the file to a CD, bring it home, work, and then carry it back to the office when I was there and restore it. That sounds good...but that won't work, if during that lapse that I am not in the office, the owner is working on QB too. Following me so far? I have looked into & worked a little bit with GoToMyPC - but that is $19.95 per month, and I am not sure if the owner would be willing to dish out a per month fee. I have also read a few other posts where UltraVNC is recommended. Furthermore, I did a search on my help & support and found that I have "Remote Desktop Connect" - what's that? Could that work? What are my options, so that when we discuss this, I know what I can and cannot do that will work for both of us. I like GoToMyPC, because I can work on their computer, and don't have to worry about saving to a CD and restoring - but again, that monthly cost.

looking for a web based remote access solution. I found one not long ago, but have now forgotten what is was. You send an email with a link and the other party clicks on it and then you can access the other computer. It was free or almost free. anyone know what i am thinking of?

Web based? You are going to have to be more specific as all of them use the internet. If you want a web browser based one you can use UltraVNC using it's client or a web browser on a different port.

Hello:
I am a retired Telephone guy managing an access database for our members. I currently have two people helping with data input and maintenace by accessing my computer utilizing GoToMyPc. With only two that is no problem. Now we want to add a couple more databases from other groups so now we would need to be able to have more then one access at a time. Is there any relatively inexpensive way of doing that?

Thanks for any input

A:Remote Access

setup up a vpn server and share your databases out over the lan.
your clients could vpn in and access the shares instead of remoting in to the pc.
it would even increase security between databases.

A computer guy friend paid for me to have Malwarebytes (the paid version) on my computer. Awhile later, he fixed my computer. It wouldn't even turn on. He was a huge help. But he decided to end our friendship. One night the mouse had a life of its own: just for 15? secs., but after that my Malwarebytes wasn't working, and I had no protection. It was later I learned to turn off remote access. Remote access could have been open due to me calling a company who did their job via remote acce.ss.

When he fixed my computer, at one point he used a USB to get email working as it was easier than a disc. He showed me it ( to prove he wasn't taking stuff off my computer) and told me it had a program on it he was using for my computer.

I never noticed anything until the night it seemed there was another mouse arrow moving on my computer. My questions:

1) do you think he had remote access?

2) if so, how much of what I did on my computer could he see?

3) if so, could he see the things I internet searched?

The remote desktop would need to be running a professional version of Windows in order to accept remote connections. If so you must open port 3389 on your router to accept the connection and use remote desktop connection which is located in the accessories folder.

We have a very small LAN (12 computers). No servers. (all server work & backups are done remotely) My boss wants to remote access his XP computer at work from his Vista system at home. he wants to control the machine like he was sitting at the keyboard. I have some old XP and Vista books that explain different ways of doing this, but I would like to find out the best and if there are more recent ways of doing this. I have already port forwarded a open port to his internal IP address. All private IP addresses are static as is the wan port on the router. Any ideas or issues you see?
 

A:Remote Access

Well you could certainly port forward port 3389 on the router to his work desktop for Terminal Services but I wouldn't recommend it for a business environment.

If you want security you should setup a VPN to access the network.

Turn it off. Go to Start right click on Computer select Remote uncheck all or select "Windows Vista and up" can only remotely connect or similar to that. I do not know the persis title. Then click Apply then Ok.

Why do you think someone is remotely connected to your pc? By default a Windows XP machine can not connect to a Windows 7 machine, or a Pro Edition can not connect to a Home Edition Windows XP to Windows 7 Home Premium for example.

Which version of Windows xp do they have and which version of Windows 7 do you have?

I have recently stopped seeing my boyfriend of four years. Somehow he knows everything I am doing. He lives 315 miles from me. I joined a dating site - he showed up on that same site as a match. I figured out how to block him from that site, but I do believe he reads everything on this computer. He is a project manager for the installation of hundreds of computers all over the world. He works from home and I believe he has several servers in his home office along with four or five computers. I am sure he is seeing everything I am typing right now. He is stalking me. I am pretty innocent and naive when it comes to computers and really need help.

When I am on the dating site I joined, if I click on a profile I may find interesting, my computer screen dulls and I get the message that the internet is not working.

I am not sure if I am in the right category or not for this question...but I would like to know about setting up other PCs so that I can remotely access them when I am away and help fix problems.

My parents drive me completely batty with their constant over the phone computer questions. It would make my life so much easier if I was able to just tap into their machine and show them what they want to know, or to check and see what the problem is. But I am not really at all familiar with how I can go about doing that...

My own personal PC is running windows 7 pro, and their PCs are running Windows Xp pro, Vista home premium, and windows 7 pro. (three different PCs) Their computers are not on any domains, just a simple basic home network for internet purposes. Nothing fancy.

How difficult or easy would it be for me to set this up? I generally turn off all avenues of remote access (like remote registry etc) so I know I would need to make the various services and such enabled again. I also figure that I may need to set up their router to allow such connections as well (right?) But beyond that, I am kind of clueless. I tried searching online, but a lot of the stuff I found talked about being on a domain, which is not applicable here.

Any help would be fabulous and much appreciated!!
