LAN cross-platform software solution for file sharing and RDC

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Hello everyone,

I've been up and down the forum and google\yahoo, ect searches and haven't come across what I'm looking for. I'm hoping you'll bear with me as there seems there'd be an obvious solution.... Unfortunately I haven't been able to find it.

With that said, I'm looking for a software solution for remote desktop control with file sharing across a LAN running 2 XP, 1 Vista, and 2 OS X machines with VM Fusion. Ideally I'd like either a dropbox on desktop or right menu context "send to" for file transfer.

I know it sounds a bit lazy but I've already tried COTVNC, radmin, teamviewer and many other VNC and separate file transfer solutions that are either single platform or don't have all-in-one solution unless I log onto internet.

. I have networked folders on all machines with no problem but digging through Explorer and Finder has become tedious and sharing desktops for file transfers has created a cluttered mess.

I was hoping with all the experience on this site and the excellent solutions I've been provided in past (umm, let me wipe that brown off my nose ;-) that someone has come across a fast, stable software solution.

Any suggestions are majorly appreciated,
