Remote Access Program

Could you please reccommend a remote access program that is not blocked by Symantec and that is either free of very inexpensive. I tried using Teamviewer but Symantec programs seem to block it.

Thanks!!

Robert

1) Why do You not want to use windows rdp? - it is included in windows
2) Set Symantec to allow use Teamviewer - it is no problem to exclude application from blocking
2) Free client and server programs: UltraVNC and others *VNC, free client only: Terminals

Check out teamviewer. If it cannot connect using it's default port it uses port 80.

Teamviewer is free for personal use.

RDP requires IIS to work and we had to disable IIS to get our network to function properly. I am trying to access this system from my work computer during my lunch hours and I don't have rights to configure Symantec. The system I want to access is the school where I provide technical support. Having remote access during the day would be very helpful.
When I try to access using teamviewer from my home computer there is no problem. At work we use a proxy server which I have entered into the Teamviewer information and the error message I get when trying to connect is "A connection could not be established. Partner could not be located at the given network address."

That's gonna be tough to do without administrator rights on your PC's firewall...
BTW:  RDP has nothing to do with IIS...

RDP version 5 is included in Windows. New version 6 is available in microsoft site. There is different setup programs for 2003 and XP. What is your problem? - maybe it is IT admins problem?

Teamviewer should work in conjunction with a proxy. Have you tried the setting wherby teamviewer gets the proxy settings from your browser?

Not sure if this is what you mean but I did go to Teamviewer - Extras menu and the options. I went into the Proxy settings and entered the same Proxy IP (proxy.server.com) as is in my LAN settings of IE. That gives me the message - A connection could not be established. Partner could not be contacted at the given network address.

On one computer I have the ID that I would expect - nine characters. In the other my ID is the IP address of this network. I get the same error with both.

try logmein.com. There is a free version that works very well. you would need to install a client on a machine then use RDP to connect to any computer you want to.
