    Radmin 3.3 Remote Control Software

    I use it to be able to see what my clients are doing, then it allows me to take complete control of their computer and gives me a window with their desktop to see exactly what I am doing. You can also open a module that allows for file transfer. It also has several other functions that assist in remote troubleshooting, but this is secure program that will meet your needs. There is a 30 day trial, and after that is is $50 for each computer you want remote access to.

    Well if you want to access data I suggest a FTP...if you want to access everything I suggest VPN...if you want to access it like you were actually on the thing like moving the mouse remotely and such I suggest "Remote Desktop" or VNC. If you need further help what Operating system are you using? Mac, windows, Linux, Unix?
