Pimp Your Work

Remote access software. is it worth using?

by Tris Hussey on October 19th, 2006

LifeHacker suggests remote control software to help friends and family with computer problems, which makes some sense.  They point to a new player LogMeIn which offers one free version and several pay options.  The pay options seem a tad steep to me, but let’s think about this from the PYW perspective for a moment.

Should you set up this kind of remote access to your work PC?  We’ve all seen the GoToMyPC ads talking about accessing your machine from home, printing, sending e-mails, etc.  The question is, is this a good thing?  Is this a work pimp or a work punk?  My vote is for the latter.  Why?  Security and network load. I know I’m wussing out, but really I’m not convinced that these are good ideas.  I’m open to suggestions though … what do you think?
