The Capital PC User Group's Northern Virginia SIG normally meets on the second Monday of the month at the Patrick Henry Library in Vienna, VA. Meetings are held from 6:45 to 9:00 pm.  Meeting dates and locations may change due to availability of library rooms.

This month our meeting is on Monday,January 9.  Topic

     Remote Desktop Support/Control
 
At this month's meeting fellow Virginia SIG member 
Mark Mabee will give a presentation on software 
that you can use to access or control a remote 
desktop, be it yours, a friend's, a relative's, or 
a client's. Remote access software allows you to 
access files and folders on your computer from 
remote locations. Remote control, or remote 
support, software allows you to control a computer 
that is in another location, launch programs, and 
update configurations.
 
There is a large number of programs which provide 
remote access and/or control. These programs vary 
considerable in the features and operating systems 
supported. While many such programs come with fees 
beyond what users would be willing to pay for 
personal use, there are also many which are free 
for personal use and are quite capable.  There are 
a couple dozen features which a user needs to 
consider before choosing an application which best 
meets his needs for remote access/control.  These 
features and programs will be presented with an 
emphasis on remote control.
