Hi everybody!

What is the most secure method to connect to another computer not being on same wi-fi ? Is it by a simple remote desktop connection? If so how to secure such a connection ? Is it better to use a software and if so, which one provide safe remote desktop control?

I kindly ask forum experts to provide a how to guide or recomendation for available secure software .

Thank you very much for your time and support!

So I assume you want to do this over the Internet.

 

Is opening ports on your firewall an option or not?

You can have a look at TeamViewer as mentioned by Kilroy. It's free for personal use, and they claim the connection is encrypted, although I know from my own research that not all traffic is encrypted.

They have howto's.

 

A paid solution is GotoAssist or GotoMyPC. They also say the communication is encrypted. I have not checked these claims.

They also have howto's.

I think you are right, almost all third parties softwares are not 100% reliable!

Thank you much for your advice.

You're welcome.

 

FYI: if I would have this need, I would look into "VNC over SSH". Google will point you to several pages, but know it's very technical, I'm not recommending this as a solution for you.
