Hi,

I curenttlu run GoToMyPC to share the desktop at my demo site, but need to attempt to use remote debugging so I can step through the source as my program executes at my demo site.  So I need a NPN for remote debugging to work in Visual Studio, and I think I will still need GoToMyPC to continue to interact with the desktop of the machine at my demo site.

Can anyone recommend a free VPN that has proven it works with GoToMyPC?

Or, does a VPN preclsude my need for GoToMyPC?

Thanks for the help.

Bob

Dear ba272,
Hamachi is a zero-configuration virtual private networking (VPN) application.Hamachi is a program that allows you to arrange multiple computers into their own secure network just as if they were connected by a physical network cable.

To go to Hamachi site refer : www.hamachi.cc

To know more about hamachi and to know it works :http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamachi

Hope it helps

Cheers!

Have you looked at www.hamachi.cc.  Once you have got through to the remote site you wont be able to use gotomypc through the vpn but that will work in the same way directly.  Alternatly access VNC or Remote Desktop onto the remote PC instead through the VPN tunnel.

Doh, too slow.  Really must have some stock answers sitting around rather than all this typing malarky...
