"Ammyy Admin - Free Remote Desktop Sharing"
Ammyy Admin is a remote access software package that is designed to be used both on computers to connect to and used as connection software to another PC as well. The package is mostly self-configuring and does not even need to be installed to run it.
The software uses direct IP connections and efficient use of bandwidth to ensure a good, secure connection. Both firewalls and NATs typically pose no problem for the making connections through them.
The remote control interface is simplicity itself. A user ID is already set. The ID address for the host computer is displayed in the console. When wanting to connect to another computer that is also running the Ammyy Admin package, the user can set the connection speed and bandwidth capacity so that the software can be configured to use only that much capacity.
Real-time voice chat within the application makes it easy to communicate with the person whose computer the user is connected to. High-level encrypted is used during remote connections to ensure security is kept tight.
Free of charge for non-commercial use. For business use, there is a cost to the software.
The Ammyy Admin downloadable file is an executable file, so it is portable and does not need to be installed. There were subsequently no surprise extras that came with Ammyy Admin.
Ammyy Admin requires Windows 2000 or later.
The interface is remarkably simple. The application can sit on the desktop waiting for an operator-initiated session to occur. There is also the option to create a new session as a client and access another computer with Ammyy Admin software running on it.
Information such as ID, IP address, indicator lights, and connection speeds can be set or come set for the user already, as in the case of the ID number.
Voice chats can be initiated between the user and the person whose computer they are connected to.
