you will get varied responses from different administrators. many of my business clients use symantec for their antivirus and for their remote administration.another network consultant friend of mine uses tight VNC.(freeware) both of us can do what we want. tight vnc uses a web browser to access remotely, pcanywhere uses a client/host type protocol. i am preferring pcanywhere for the comfort level which i have grown accustomed to from working with it. while symantec may not be the absolute best in antivirus protection, i would have to say they (norton and symantec) are the most popular, and updates are done for the both of them at once, cutting down on the update administration. if you should choose to go this route and want some advice with it, e-mail me @ , or leave me a message here. whatever you do, you can get a free dns hosting @ www.no-ip.com , this is nice for all those dhcp users that have to check their ip everytime.
