Am totally new to trying to Remote Access a Computer, so I'm hoping someone can assist/recommend!
I have a Win7 (64-bit) PC, at home, that is behind a BT Homehub (which I'm assuming is NOT a fixed IP) & behind software firewall.
I'm often working away & either using my own Laptop (WinXP, latest update) or a Client's Laptop (Win7, 64 bit). For each of them I could be using the Client's Network (which has some limited Firewall functions) or a public/hotel access.
If I'm using the Client's Laptop on public/hotel access, then that would be via Client's VPN.
Basically I would like to access my Home PC remotely (particularly Emails).
Which software/system would you recommend?
Would MS's Remote Desktop be adequate or do I need to route everything via an independent Server?
Etc, etc, etc??
(NB:- the critical combination (the others I can live without) is accessing my Home-PC whilst using the Client's Network (either via Client or my own Laptop). Because of the bizarre Client Firewall rules, I can access one of my Email Accounts, but not the main account - both which are hosted independently of each other & also independently of my ISP).
