Remote access is a new feature that lets you connect to your computer, across the Internet, from wherever you are. To use this feature, your computer must be switched on and remote access must be installed and enabled. In this case, and if you have configured remote access correctly, you can access and work with your computer from any other computer on the Internet. You do not need to have remote access installed on the computer from which you are accessing your own. You can access from any computer with an Internet connection, preferably with broadband.
In addition to allowing you to use your computer remotely, remote access also offers other useful features, including:
File transfer: This lets you copy files or folders from the remote computer to your own and vice versa.
File share: This lets you send files which, due to their specific characteristics or size, could be difficult to send via email. Remote access generates a secure link which you can send to other users for them to download files directly from your computer.
Guest invite: This is useful for letting a friend access your computer remotely, for example, to help you resolve a problem. They will be able to see your desktop, control the mouse and keyboard, transfer files...
Communications between both computers with remote access are properly encrypted and include a digital signature to prevent interception by third parties.
The remote access feature has its own detailed Help file with all the information you need to get the most out of this feature.
