Great collaboration tool from TeamViewer

Imagine a situation when you are trying to ascertain why your software “doesn’t work as it should” on your client’s computer and your client is located on the other side of the world… What if you could login to that user computer and see the problem yourself?

Or imagine a situation that you are on the other side of the world and do not have access to a specialised software locally but that software happens to be installed on you home PC. What if you could login and use that software remotely?  

TeamViewer is a great tool that allows to “take over” a computer remotely, via the Internet. Host application requires installation but the other end, that runs on remote computer, is just a simple runtime executable. Users at both ends just need to synchronise connection by exchanging a line of digits representing a password. It is so simple and no programming skills or convoluted setup required…
