TeamViewer is a simple and fast solution for remote control, desktop sharing and file. Connecting to another computer can’t be simpler, just run TeamViewer on both machines without the need of an installation procedure. With the first start automatic partner IDs are generated on both computers. Enter your partner's ID into TeamViewer and the connection is established immediately.

Teamviewer allows two people to do file transfers, remote support (with or without installation), remote administration of unattended servers/pc’s & remote presentation of products. Teamviewer works behind firewalls and Proxies, and uses secure data channels, encoding traffic from both pc’s.

Teamviewer is FREE if used privately, and does it work! You bet!
You need to run on decent bandwidth, 3G, ADSL, Iburst. Both sides need to download the application. One will be the host, the other will connect to the host session. You just share your ID and Password, select which type of session you need (remote support, Presentation or File Transfer) and you connect… it is THAT SIMPLE!

One cool feature of TeamViewer is that you don't need any configuration of IPs, no firewall issues (it has it’s own ‘dyngate’ routing that bypasses firewall security somehow). File transfer ability, SSL security and a host interface are so simple, even my Grandma would know how to use it.
