Free Remote Help Applications

Frequently we get alot of requests for help from customers and friends in the ColdFusion Community. Alot of the time their applications are behind firewalls and the problem cant be recreated our side so remote desktop type applications really are a huge help and time saver.

I used to use MS Messenger Remote Assistance but lately it is so unreliable and for months now I havent been able to connect to a single remote user.

Co-Pilot (www.copilot.com) is good but I found 2 free alternatives today that may help other companies in the same boat as us.

I am sure there are more out there and would love to hear other peoples suggestions and solutions.

I will post up my experiences with both these apps in time.

Logmein.com is by far the best (and free).

Dan - a big thanks from a small team for bringing us to your readers. I wish to make myself available to anyone who has questions.

Also I recommend that you subscribe to our blog (URL against my name) for new releases and updates. I think we are going to delight a lot of people. It will be released initially through a private invitation only.

Thanks

No problem Mrinal, Looking forward to testing your app once I get an invite.
I began to use IRemotePC.com.
This is very good. Thank you for good information.

Automates the VNC process, its free and pretty easy to use, do not have to install anything on either end.
