This is an amazing product, very useful when needed to support or troubleshoot other people’s computer. I have been using this product for the past 2 years when I was working for a well-known Government Agency while back ago. Just follow the easy step instructions and you should be able to get it going in minutes.
The reason we had a chance to use this awesome product was when one of our customers was NOT part of our Domain (network) realm. It was difficult at the time using our current remote access program which required a domain network presence. We needed to figure out how to remote access to their computer without forking out any money.
I google it and I stumbled upon this website http://www.teamviewer.com/en/index.aspx. It was approved by our network team to use because there was no need to reconfigure the firewall or block ports.
