Like other remote access solutions, GoToMyPC works by passing screen information from the host to the client, and mouse movement and keystroke information from the host to the client. It eats up more bandwidth to pass screen information in True Color, so to help ensure optimal performance over any connection, GoToMyPC enables you to adjust its display settings. The Performance slider (shown below) allows you to easily refine the display settings to match your needs and connection speed.
When you run an application remotely, it’s actually run on the host computer as the client computer simply displays the host’s screen information. This means you can run any application that is installed on the host, even when you’re remotely accessing it from a client with a low specification, such as a Pocket PC, or a computer with a different operating system.
Because GoToMyPC’s options and settings can be accessed from either the host-side application or the website, you don't have to be in front of the host computer to alter your preferences.
GoToMyPC enables you to do almost anything that you would be able to do if you were actually in front of your home or office computer. You can install or uninstall software, send email, and work with your documents. But GoToMyPC lets you do much more than simply remotely control your computer. You can also invite another person to remotely access your computer, either with view-only access or with the ability to remote control. This is an excellent way to run an online demo or to obtain technical support.
With GoToMyPC you can copy files from the host to the client computer, or from the client to the host computer. You can also synchronize directories on multiple devices, which is particularly useful if you regularly need to work on more than one computer.
GoToMyPC also supports remote printing. Remote printing allows you to easily and quickly print a document on the host computer.What's Not:
As mentioned earlier in this review, GoToMyPC lacks wake-on-LAN support , a key feature you'll find in other competing products, like NTRconnect.
