Anybody have an opinion on what the best free desktop sharing software is? I like TeamViewer, but it is too expensive. I especially like the way I can upload files in TeamViewer, so this would be a requirement.

Thanks for your time.

As I understand it though, it takes a bit of setting up on the customer PC. Is that still the case?

RDP comes with Windows and the setup would be the same as any other remote Desktop (roughly the same).

With TeamViewer there is no set up. You just aks the host to install TeamViewer, with no technical knowledge, and away we go. Perhaps that why is costs so much!

I agree about Team Viewer all the way. It is not free and if you must have free, then RDP is it. It is a choice you need to make.

Sorry it's been divided down to 100 each, but I can't do anything about that I'm afraid. All help gratefully received!
