Ask any small business owner and computer problems will rank very high in the list of stressful things to affect your company. But what do when your computer goes down and your 14-year-old nephew lives to far away to come over and fix it?
Virtual Private Network (VPN) software has
been around for a while and is a great option. It allows you to give explicit
permission to somebody else to take over and control your computer from a
remote location (aka, another computer). It allows them to fix or install the
necessary software just like they were sitting beside you.
In the past VPN software has been difficult
to configure but all of that has changed with the introduction of Crossloop.
Crossloop is a remote desktop application
with an easy to understand interface. You can literally get up and running in
minutes without knowing a thing about ports or protocols.
Even though there are other pieces of
software that allow you to connect computers over the internet, none of them
are as easy to use as Crossloop. The other cool feature of it is that there is
a new social networking site that they have developed for people who have
problems and other people who are interested in helping.
All in all, a cool little piece of software
that you might want to take a look at.
