Kinda got an ultimatum from my Dr. today..............get off my feet or I might not have them to get off of. Such cheery news on the day after Valentines. Anyway, I would like your advice, opinions, etc., concerning the best remote access software. What I have in mind is running TG on my desktop and controlling it with a laptop. It is either that or give up on my so called art..............not ready to do that right now.  ???


Thanks in advance.............you could throw in a recommendation for a good laptop if you feel like it.  ;)


Or if you know of any cross platform...........iOS to PC.  ::)

I symphatize with you, Richard, but no nothing about this, so can't help you. Take good care of yourself!

Oshyan mentioned in the thread TeamViewer, which is what I've been using lately.  There should be an iOS version as well. I use it both on my tablet and cellphone to access the same computer.

If you're going to use TeamViewer or any other similar approach, you'll want to run the same resolution on the laptop as you do on the desktop and then go fullscreen. That will give you the closest to "native" experience, and over a LAN there should be minimal delay. If you have Professional versions of Windows, the built-in Remote Desktop connection is actually one of the highest quality, closest to "native" experiences you can get...

I used Teamviewer, had those resolution issues Oshyan described, but otherwise a solid product. Windows Remote desktop is probably superior if you have access to that. In either case you will be limited by your bandwith. With a fast connection it should be a decent experience, however. Good luck on your mentioned health issues!

I have had a few issues with TeamViewer, but I'm running on Ipad Pro and trying to control my pc. Some things work correctly others don't. Gonna have to get a laptop I guess. Any recommendations ?

Perhaps cheaper that u install a Windows on your MAC and get a cheaper laptop(cheaper than a MAC Book or something) and go like that?
Dell T5500 with Dual Hexa Xeon CPU 3Ghz, 32Gb ram
Amiga 1200 8Mb ram, 8Gb ssd

Good to know as my time is coming but it may have to be voice activated as well as my hands are giving me the most problems...At least I could keep writing music if my hands go south on me.
