Hello PCWorld WAN/LAN editors,
I've been waiting for you folks do to a comparison between a couple of remote control software applications for some time. Since I haven't seen it or must have missed it (I don't think so) ... I have done my own comparison and was amazed at what I found. I am not affiliated with any of the following products in any way...
You need to compare the following for speed, reliability, stability, compatibility, ease of use and cost.... etc.
Test over standard modem to modem, LAN, and a PPTP VPN over the WWW Radmin V2.01, PcAnywhere V9.02, LapLink Gold, VNC and Citrix Metaframe. The pricing on these range from $0 (VNC), $35 Shareware (Radmin), to several thousand for a complete Citrix solution.
My comparision was triggered buy the speed and instability of the most well known and widely used product of the group.
I tested all 5 products mentioned above. I won't tell you the overall results of what I came up with..... but .... you really need to include Radmin in your comparison.
I had never heard of Radmin and have never seen it in a major PC magazine. I stumbled onto it while searching the WEB. Your can download the tiny 1.5mb software package and test it for 30 days from http://www.famatech.com/
Once again... I have no affiliation with any of the mentioned products. I was just looking for the best product for my clients daily remote networking needs.
