Chapter 9. Remote-Control Software for Your PC: GoToMyPC

If you’ve ever left your laptop at home while you’ve been on a business trip and needed to get a file on your hard drive or get on your network, then this next solution may well be for you. There’s a variety of services on the market that now make it easier than ever to access your home or office desktop remotely from any other computer connected to the Internet by simply using a standard Web browser interface.

One of the companies in this space is Expertcity. Their GoToMyPC offering is a hosted service that enables secure, browser-based access to any Internet-connected Windows computer (Figure 9-1; Plate 6). Their functionality includes screen sharing, file transfer, remote printing, guest invite, and chat applications. They also provide a Universal Viewer, which allows you to access a Windows host PC from any Internet browser running on a Windows, Unix, or Macintosh operating system.
