BTW: We install Tight VNC on the users side and having start as a
service.  Then we use what is called Ultra to control the pcs.

        My company is using Citrix more and more from remote locations.
Unfortunately I'm tending to run into PC OS problems more often then not
and talking the users through the simplest tasks in some cases is very


        Does anyone know of a web based remote control program what will
work without any firewall configuration and allow me to easily remote
control remote PCs? I would think it needs to be HTTP based so I can
easily traverse firewalls. Citrix has "go to my PC" but it is
expensive...I need something cheaper.


        Most of the PCs are XP and have RDP but that would require me to
setup port forwarding on the firewalls and I don't want to do that.


        Any suggestions?
