Limitations are only the effort you want to have to configure it (correctly).

RemotePC is very well suited for remote administration and remote access to own PC's. Larger scale implementations might require integration and gateway server. Mobile access best requires a tablet however without a mouse navigation can be cumbersome. Multiple connections on one PC seems currently not supported so a one on one link for the time being

Cons
Apache
  • We have experienced some stability problems (mostly Tomcat related).
  • The interface could be a little more user-friendly.
  • Certain keyboard shortcuts used by Guacamole GUI are impossible to use in the Firefox browser in out-of-the-box configuration.

  • It would be good if the software can display the status of the remote computer, such as whether it is in an active session, in the login screen.
  • No disable for RemotePC Host without knowing the password.

I still find value in this tool. If I needed to increase computers supported, I would need to revaluate pricing concerns.

Although TeamViewer stands as the top product for remote support, the same goes for its pricing. A small business like ours wouldn't be able to afford software like TeamViewer and we would never be using most of its features. On the other end, Splashtop is an affordable option, but its deployment is a little too complicated. RemotePC was our choice, with an easy deployment process and a pricing program that's easy to understand and within our budget.
