im looking into different remote access software, ive tried remote desktop and vnc and found id rather have something thats quicker to deploy. plus, when i am dealing with some of my non-techie relatives---the simpler the better.
ive narrowed it down to a couple webbased programs--gotomypc, mywebexpc and logmein. not sure which one to choose from here. logmein sounds the coolest simply because its free--but is it any good?
I used Logmein for a while, but it was far too unreliable. Often times it just stopped working for extended periods of time, ie 30+ minutes, reporting of connection errors in the log. You're connecting through Logmein, so it's just another point that can fail. So, I evaluated them useless for production server environments, and went back to good old VNC, the $50 Enterprise version from http://www.realvnc.com/download.html -- rock-solid, although I wouldn't necessarily go for the Enterprise version next time, the free one will do the job.
If you're running this on a Windows machine, you could use Remote Administrator. It can install via command line, and it's super easy to use.

Yah, I can't see how RD is hard to deploy. You install the OS, you have remote desktop. It's faster than the others and very secure.
