I am trying to finid a really good virtual client software that I can install on my customers pc so when I need to troubleshoot stuff I can do it from home. I use Real VNC at my office, works good. I have yet to see if I can get it to work on my home pc so I can get to it from work and bypass my linksys router, I think all I have to do is open certain ports. I also want to give the client the option to allow me in and not allow me to access their pc anytime I want without permission or a password.

I use tightvnc through a SSH tunnel for connecting to my home computer(s) from work. TightVNC does have an option to 'Query console on incoming connections' where someone sitting at that maching can accept or refuse the connection.

For customer support, Ultra VNC and Single-click are the way to go:


The use downloads a very small preconfigured executable, that installs nothing on their computer, but then reverse connects to you so you can remote control it.

All free.
