Free Remote access to your home or work computer

Have you ever wanted to work from home but needed to drive to work because you left an important spreadsheet open on your work computer and you didn’t save it to your jump drive and didn’t email it to yourself?There are many different reasons and occasions where I needed to access one of my computers from different location but didn’t want to pay a use fee or monthly service fee.

The LogMeIn Free software gives you remote access of your PC or Mac from any other computer with internet access.Before you leave work or leave your house simply install LogMeIn on the computer you want to access.(I install LogMeIn on all my computers) When you traveling or away from that computer simply go to www.logmein.comand login with the email/password combination assigned to the computer you want to access and you’re in just as if you were sitting in front of it!

Here are some instructions I wrote up for some colleagues:

Access your work computer from home or on the road

AT WORK
1.    Go to www.logmein.com
2.    Click Try It Free (green button)
3.    Click Access Computers Remotely (green button again)
4.    Create an account using your work email address, choose no for “will you use logmein for IT support)
5.    Name your computer something such as DesktopDell or DesktopHP. I would not use something too descriptive such as SSNSQLDatabase which would make it less secure
6.    Download the logmein tool

WHEN YOU GET HOME OR TO YOUR OTHER REMOTE  LOCATION
1.    Go to www.logmein.com
2.    Login with the same work email address you chose for the work computer
3.    Click the  blue Log Me In button
4.    You will see the name of your work computer and a Green Remote Control button
5.    Click the Green Remote Control button
6.    You will then have to login to your work computer just as if you were sitting in front of it

You’re also able to do just the opposite and access your home computer from work or on the road
AT HOME
1.    Go to www.logmein.com
2.    Click Try It Free (green button)
3.    Click Access Computers Remotely (green button again)
4.    Create an account using your personal email address, choose no for “will you use logmein for IT support)
5.    Name your computer something description like HomeDellPC or HomeOldHP
6.    Download the logmein tool

AT WORK OR TO YOUR OTHER REMOTE LOCATION
1.    Go to www.logmein.com
2.    Login with the personal email and password you chose for your home computer
3.    Click the blue Log Me In button
4.    You will see the name of your home computer and a Green Remote Control button
5.    Click the Green Remote Control button
6.    You will then have access to your home computer just as if you were sitting in front of it
