Control your PC from a Pocket PC phone with GoToMyPC PocketView

If you want remote access to your PC then you'll want to check out GoToMyPC PocketView for Windows Mobile.

Being able to remotely access your PC is a real boon for productivity, and it makes sense to be able to do so from a portable device, as well as from another PC. GoToMyPC runs in a web browser, which makes it inherently more portable than other remote access software packages.

The PocketView version of GoToMyPC runs on Windows Mobile Pocket PC, which means any Windows Mobile phone with a touchscreen. You're won't get the full range of features in GoToMyPC, just remote control of your PC, and you're won't get all the remote control features of the latest version there's no sound, for example. What you do get however is access to your PC when you need it, from anywhere with a cellular data connection.

The power of PocketView isn't in the application itself, which is very simple; it's having access to your own PC, with your own files and applications.

You will need to do some preparation. You have to install GoToMyPC on your PC before you leave it, and you have to leave it turned on. You don't have to do anything to enable GoToMyPC PocketView; if it runs on your device you'll be redirected automatically. But there are some settings you'll want to change on your desktop if you're planning to use PocketView, although you can change them once you're connected with PocketView if necessary.

Think about whether anyone else is likely to be using your PC while you're away; if they are you'll want to have the mouse and keyboard lock while you're logged in. You'll probably want to blank the screen, unless you specifically want to show someone how to use an application on your system.
