Remote Control applications allow you to remotely access and "take over" a computer from any location on the Internet. Once you've connected to a computer via remote control, it is as if you are on that computer
, able to view and utilize the same resources that you would locally.
Remote Control is most often used to support a remote location or resolve an issue. As opposed to having to travel to the location that requires assistance or explain over the phone how to resolve a problem, simply access the computer over the Internet from any distance and resolve the issue yourself.
Other uses for Remote Control include: monitoring servers or critical applications (e.g., web servers, email servers, etc.) and resolving issues without having to be in front of the server, allowing road warriors access to their office workstations or necessary company resources, and the list goes on and onů
If you have a Dynamic IP address, you are hard to find. When attempting to use Remote Control Software, you need to connect to either an IP address or a domain name to establish communication with. If you don't have a static IP address, you must constantly provide an updated IP address to the person who is attempting to connect via Remote Control, and maintain your separate Remote Control application.
