...and thus the reason they are now charging. Well, you and the millions of other people doing it.

The issue with Teamviewer is, if you run Windows Server, it will eventually pick it up as "Commercial use", and you will have to buy a license. I found an alternative though. If you are using Windows

I .... might.     YES. Specifically, the feature/role you are using is called "Remote Desktop Gateway". It requires an SSL certificate, just like your website does (the same one, in fact). And ev

I have been using Logmein free for years for a few of my business clients.. so I can't really complain that they want to get paid... but this short of a notice is crazy..

 

It looks like we are going to be buying the $1500 Teamviewer package.

I agree but unfortunately the pricing is for business and not for individuals (unless maybe that's where you make your money).

Use WHS2011, SBS2011E, WSS2008R2E, WS2012E or WS2012R2E.  All of these products features Remote Desktop Gateway as part of their core functionality. This does RDP via an encrypted and secure channel, and over HTTPS (port 443).  This is secure, and safe (well, as safe as your SSL cert is).

 

This is also my solution for remote access.

Thanks before this i didn't even know what RDP Gateway was. I was just going to open the RDP Port (Forgot the port number) in my router which would probably be bad. Definitely going to investigate

Well guys i think you were right TeamViewer i think is going to meet my needs. I looked into the RDP gateway and i'm sure i could figure it out if i had the time but i couldn't find a good/recent tutorial how to set it up. TeamViewer might actually be better than LogMeIn considering it bundles a VPN (but i haven't tried it out yet).

NCage, if you have any of the OS's that I listed, it's built in. Part of the Remote/Anywhere Access website. Setting that up configures everything you need to run it. That's part of why I love these OS's.

 

But yes, TeamViewer works as well.

 

 

As for setting up RDGateway (which requires a server OS, and a SSL cert which can be self-signed):

Thanks Drashna i'll check it out. I have a question for those that have used teamviewers vpn. Unfortunately, it creates the teamviewer as a "Public Network". Not quite sure how to change it to a "private network" and i think thats whats messing me up. When i vpn to a machine in my network i can browse the files on that specific machine but i can't see any files on any more machines in my internal network. Hopefully this doesn't mean i have to vpn specifically to the machine i want to access.

It's not true that you can only RDP into 1 computer and would then have to RDP from that computer. All you have to do is use different port numbers for each computer you want to RDP into.

 

The way I do it is I have port forwarding entries in my router, one for each computer I want to RDP into. Each of the entries forwards the packets from a specific port to port 3389 on the intended destination computer. For example, from the Internet I might tell RDP to connect to <12345>
