TeamViewer 6.0.11656

There are various occasions when it would be useful to be able to take control of a computer in another location. Whether you are at home and need to do something on your work machine, or are in one room of the house and want to control a computer in another. Setting up a virtual private network can be difficult and made more so by the presence of firewall. TeamViewer, however, aims to make things as easy as possible.

The program needs to be installed on the computer which is to be controlled and the one which is going to be used to control it. By providing the relevant security code, it is then possible to establish a connection to the remote computer and control it as if you were sat in front of it. TeamViewer can also be used to hold remote demonstrations, offer remote support and much more.

Unlike other similar software, TeamViewer works through firewalls without complex configuration and all communication is secured using 256-bit encryption. Features such as file transfer and chat make this a hugely versatile tool, and the fact that it is available free of charge mean that there is no reason not to try it out.

TeamViewer is free for personal-use. Commercial users will need to purchase a license.
