This depends on what you're after.  The most reliable connection I can think of is actually not so much reliable, as it is reconnectable - Direct Access from Microsoft will persist a VPN connection - if you're looking strictly for a screen-sharing style of remote connection, it's a crapshoot - because the major component to deal with is the network stability between your origination point and your end point - and at any given period, it could differ in the networks that it traverses, from the moment prior.

a logme in rescue would stay connected for as long as both systems on online/on. if your after a solution that will enable you to reconect with out user intervention also however it is pay for and VNC is free however not nearly as secure.

Darryl, what is the best option you would recommend and that you would use for screen sharing that will last for hours or days (you are logging in into a remote PC)..

If you run run a WordPress, you understand the potential headaches you may face when updating your plugins and themes. Do you choose to update on the fly and risk taking down your site; or do you set up a staging, keep it in sync with your live site and use that to test updates?

I'd suggest Teamviewer.  It's not free for commercial use,but it will traverse most network implementations and is fairly secure, unlike VNC (which is fantastic for connections that remain inside your network).  Staying Connected is generally not going to be something specific to the software you use, as the network circuit is the potential failure point.

Darryl, thanks for your reco. So if you use Teamviewer, does it stay on indefinitely, even with no activity on your part. As an example, can you work on it, and take a break and come back after 6 hours, and the session will still be on?

we use logmein rescue it is a pay for app but we can set it up to stay connected it also will reconnect in a interruption in the connection also it has a tool used for later access mode this enables you to schedule a connection time to do maint with no users involvement. it is costly however.
