Does anyone know of any software that will allow you to take control of a PC remotely using a web browser only?

Thanks!

Thanks - but I'm looking for something encrypted...

I found the following article which explains how to do it, but you still need a vnc client.  I figure if you use the method in this article with ultr@vnc it could be achieved, but you'd need to change the config of stunnel - and I haven't really got any idea how...

Have a look at Tight VNC - its free:

http://www.tightvnc.com/

If you are using Windows XP have a look at this:

www.gotomypc.com also works well but is'nt free.

install a reverse proxy, you can found freeware of this software from:
http://hp.vector.co.jp/authors/VA027031/orenosp/index_en.html

on host PC:
- install orenosp service
- configure sproxy.conf
- install tightvnc or remotely anywhere
- if you want  better performance you can activate terminal service on your XP
  (but this is not a web base solution)
- you only need to open one port on your firewall even if you decided to use
  all three of the above software at the same time

on Client PC:
- if you need to access your PC from behind restricted proxy with only https access
  you will need to configure otunnell.conf and run it from command prompt
- for RDP point to 127.0.0.2:port_number as you configure in otunnell.conf

I would recommend to use RDP since this is free, best performance and the only think you need to do is configure client with otunnel.exe
