Default Remote Access Software - 11-25-2008, 02:39 AM

I am buying a Mini for my wife and I would like for her to have remote access to her desktop at home by tethering to her cell phone. She will be primarily using it for school work as she attends online. File transfers, and programs are the main need. My dilemma is fairly up front and simple. I have almost no experience with remote access software at all. I need a straight forward approach where the program does most of it for you.

I would also like to be able to access my moms computer (on DSL, wireless router) 85 miles from the house and her dads computer (don’t laugh, AOL dial up) over 1200 miles away. These need technical assistance. If you have ever had to help someone that says they are at the home screen, but really just clicking away while you try to direct them....then you know my anguish.

I am open minded to open source software as well as licensed software. However most of what I found to be more my speed was web based and had a monthly fee. I would rater not use web based.

Every computer is using XP home except for my work which is XP pro. Any advice would be great.

Thanks in advance.
