Logmein Delivers Knockout Blow To Its Free Users

logmein_logo1In a rather low-key blog post this morning, Logmein outlined more changes to its free product offering. Chief among those changes is this passage:

“we will be limiting the number of computers a user can access free of charge to 10”

That’s right, Logmein will now limit the number of computers you can access free, to 10. To gain access to more than 10 computers, you’ll need to pay the $199.00 or more for Logmein Central.  This, I feel, will effectively render the free tool useless for anyone other than a home enthusiast or perhaps anyone with a few computers that need remote access. What tends to happen over time is that users upgrade computers and leave older items inside Logmein’s console – this will likely count against your allotment of 10. Don’t expect them to be forgiving about this limit. 

How to get Remote Desktop full screen without a BREAK key


This one falls under the category of small but serious annoyance. You buy a new Windows PC only to find that the Remote Desktop Connection you use cannot be set to full screen because the computer doesn’t have a BREAK key. As you know, the typical full screen process involves pressing CTRL + ALT + BREAK to make your Remote Desktop Connection go full screen. But, many newer computers and ultra books are missing the all important BREAK key. Is there no way to get the connection full screen? All is not lost. There are ways around this problem.

Logmein On Safari: Solving The Pain

Logmein LogoIf you use Logmein on all the time, you’ll know that working from an Apple OSX machine has always been something of a pain. I have tried a number of things to get around some of the bugs I’ve seen, but few things really help. I found something today that has improved the use of Logmein on a Mac greatly. Let’s take a look at the problem and what you can do to solve it.

The Best Apps To Use For Remote Desktop Support

As the “IT Guy”, you’ll wear many hats. One of those hats involve handling crashed computers or software. Often, there are smaller configuration changes that need to be done and you really would be best served to not go to the customer for these issues. No doubt that if you’ve been in the industry for a while, you know that there are Remote Access options out there – but I’m going to go deeper and give you an idea of what is your best remote access setup.

Over the years I have seen my fair share of these products, no one application or option suits every scenario, but if you want the best, cheapest remote access options available today, here’s what you should be using.

Using Windows VNC On Standard TCP/IP Ports

VNC LogoThe VNC (Virtual Network Computing) application is quite a popular program for use as a remote control application. The program is free, and Open Source and can be used in a wide variety of situations. While you can now control port numbers easily in the interface – you may want to know how port numbers are changed on a Windows system. In this article I will describe how to setup the VNC Server (On Windows) to use ports that are commonly used on the Internet.

There are no more results.
