Use GoToMyPC (or Mac) Only After You Have Read This
Although I love GoToMyPC and use it every single day when I am traveling to connect to my home and work PC, there are a couple of things I wish I knew before I started using it!
In all fairness, I still would have ended up using GoToMyPC, every bit as much as I do today, but it’s not something the company or anybody points out to you.
1. You can connect to your home PC anytime 24/7 and use your computer just as if you were sitting in front of it! BUT, if the computer is turned off, or crashes, you are out of luck unless you have access to someone who can reboot it for you. GoToMYPC will not turn your computer on remotely as of this date.
2. While you are working on your home or work PC you can use every piece of software, every file or pictures on the computer you are connecting to. If you have sensitive material you are looking at, there is a function in your GoToMyPC Settings that will black out the screen on the PC you are connected to. Very important if the PC you are connecting to is at your office
Jan 2010 Update: GoToMyPC is now available for Mac. They aren’t going to change the name to GoToMyMac, but this news is great for all you Apple users/junkies. The link above will work for both
