I don't quite understand.

You're getting help with your computer from a friend through GoToMyPC? Or are you connecting to someone else's PC through GoToMyPC?

I work remotely for my job and my friend connects my pc with gotomypc software and now remotely I connect to my client server. Now my question is will my client knows or can find out that I am using gotomypc software and getting help from my friend or not.

oh, then no. Even with a packet sniffer all traffic will be coming from your PC; GoToMyPC talks to your PC and your PC talks to your client server

The simple answer is no they should not find out.

It should not be possible for them to find out, however you are likely in breach/conflict of the clients nondisclosure agreement, and or other confidentiality agreements. If they do find out your employment would likely be terminated. If we found anyone doing this at our office, no matter who is was, they are fired. Gotomypc can be detected by your client if your client runs a packet sniffer or has an IDS like Snort, and the PC your connecting to using gotomypc is in THEIR lan. If your friend connects to your pc, and then your pc connects to the client via vpn or some other method, you probably won't be detected. Our snort IDS picks up on any gotomypc, letmein, showmypc, pcmobilizer, pcnow, radmin and beanywhere if our users used any of those products, we have signatures for it. Again only if you were to use gotomypc inside my lan could I detect you doing that. I could not detect that your friend was also connected to your PC.

So you mean if my friend connects my pc with gotomypc and now if I connect remotely to my client server than my client can't detect or find about gotopc. Is it what you mean right.

Correct. If you are connecting to your client without gotomypc, they won't be able to tell that your friend is connected to your pc.

Are you 100 percent sure that client can't detect it. Just making sure as don't want to take risk and loose my job because of this simple mistake

It's not 100%, if they use NAC or NAP in their network it's very likely they would detect it.

Don't risk it.
