We are doing remote monitoring of some agents who are connected on VPN. We earlier used Go to Assist which is highly resource intensive thus leaving its foot prin. Can you suggest any alternate freeware that would work from internet?. We tried VNC but does not work out of internet

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I use VNC to access remote users via VPN and it does work OK.

Make sure that the VPN allows the network you connect from, to whatever IP subnet their client has. I would first check you can PING them, which means the route is there, and then try VNC. Also check their firewall allows this, probably first worth trying with the two machines on the same LAN, if that is possible, and then try it remotely.

I’ve used both teamviewer (non-hosted) as well as logmein free version (hosted). Either product would suffice for any users.

    Can you better define remote monitoring? The tools you are referring to seem more geared toward remote support. Is this what you are referring to? ShowMyPC is a good alternative in that it does not require installation but just an executable. See the website for more details. It is basically VNC.

    VNC should work. We have used it (Ultra VNC) for years to control remote computers via VPN.

    VNC will work and you may want to check out SpectorSoft's monitoring solutions.

    I use Proxy's remote desktop software without issue. They have a mobile application, it never slows down my laptop, and it has advanced security features to protect network security.
