I'm sure it is good but remember that Teamviewer is free and also excellent.

Just reading up on RealVNC. Looks good, I probably will download a trial of the $30 personal version.

Gregg, that is good to know. Is RealVNC freeware?

I used to use UltraVNC locally over my private network but someone told me that Teamviewer uses the local network vs Internet if it can. Seems to work but it is light on details. Useful though for when I'm at my observatory location which is at our farm. With almost three feet of snow and 200 yards to cross in the dark, nice to not need to strap on snowshoes and traipse out there in the cold and instead use a fast local wireless connection vs my slower Internet signal.

Hi Stuart
I have been using RealVNC for several years with good results.  Response is usually very fast but of course depends on your internet connection.

Clear skies,

Wayne, I use Teamviewer and really like it. It is free.

Wondering how others are doing remote access of their systems? I was able to remotely operate mount, Focuser, and camera from my iPad using GoToMyPC, which mirrors the remote computer screen. Slow response, but it was workable. Are there better/more efficient methods? Thanks!
