Great app

Well designed, intuitive. If you need an instruction manual you really shouldn't be using it!

Only one very minor issue, when I want to restart a client I have to visit it as cannot do ctrl alt end. But this may be a security "feature" so cannot mark it down.

If you are a "home" user you will need a terminal servicer installed on your network and you'll need proper OS "home" versions need not apply!

Doesn't work in windows 8.1

I have tried setting up the Remote Desktop for an hour. Looked at tutorial videos and it appears that it only works with windows 8 or windows 8.1 pro. The problem is when I go to system properties and choose the remote tab. I can select allow remote assistance but there are no further options on Windows 8.1. In 8 and pro, there is another option to allow remote connections. So the app is not working for me. I'd appreciate it if anyone can explain how I can get it to work.

Works perfectly !

Connected to my Windows 7 Ultimate desktop on the same network using the local IP address instead of the computer name and it connected in seconds, I mean literally two seconds at most !

I'm very impressed and I'm a very hard man to please, seriously !!
