My client's requirement is:
He wants to access PC1 from PC2, PC3 and PC4.
Whenever he tries to access PC1 from any of the other machines, he should be asked for a username and password. The software should have option of multiple users whose access rights should be configurable.
Upon entering the correct username and password, the software should not require any manual intervention on PC1 to give access to the remote user.
All machines will have Windows XP software.
I need information like Cost of the software per license, speed issues, security issues, user-friendliness issues, etc.
Will the machines need a static IP address ? Will a 256K broadband connection suffice ?
Pls. give information on the various alternatives available in the market, freeware as well as commercial ones.
Thanks a lot.
