What is best free remote desktop application?

TeamViewer, TightVNC, VNCFree, etc.

Which one would be the best for home use? Anyone used any of that software?

Is that limited use? A trial?

If all the computers are on the same LAN, I would go with RDP it is built in.

Logmein Free is pretty good.

I personally use Teamviewer, so I can get on my computer from my phone without much a hassle.

One of the companies I worked for (2006-2009) used UltraVNC because it was free. I can confirm that UltraVNC is the worst piece of software that I have ever used in my life.

I much preferred DameWare over UltraVNC.

It depends what you want to use it for. I use VNC quite a bit in my work to access remote servers from my home or office and it works fine for that as I am on the same network (office) or VPN (home). Of course each machine I need to access has been configured with the VNC server running.

For providing remote assistance to friends/family (especially those that are not too computer savvy) I prefer TeamViewer because I just need to have them download it and run it, no setup for them to do. Also, TeamViewer has a chat function so we can talk as I provide remote assistance.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

My next question is, I need to access my home computer when I am on vacation. I wont be able to access Team viewer at home. Is the there a piece of software that will allow me to tap in to my home connection without anyone at that computer?
