Default Remote Control


Just curious what you all have been using for remote control software? My brother suggested I use LogMeIn (he uses it for remote support at work), but I want to know what else is out there.

my mother who's an accountant swears by GoToMyPC, but I hear that it uses a lot of memory, so don't go that way...

VNC is good
but I don't tend to use it very often.

Default use it @ work to connect to people pc's and fix stuff...

it's also got a pretty sweet listener on it that uses port 5500 (that you run on your pc) and then people can d/l a small like ~ 165KB app that they can run and connect so that you can control their pc...use that a lot for support remote pc's that aren't on our network....
