    "Works most of the time"

    February 18, 2012  |   By djenvz

    Pros

    Pretty simple, does what it suppose to, feels like you'e really working on that pc machine remotely. Make sure to launch in full screen mode, had some issues working in other size window sessions.

    Cons

    Hangs up - sometimes from the very start of the remote session and you have to disconnect and reconnect again. For me only works on my Mac Air in 32 bit mode - can't work it on 64 bit mode. Have had it crash when disconnecting from the machine prompting the mac to do a 'report crash' window thing.

    Summary

    Overall, works great when it does work, wish it worked in 64 bit mode so I don't have to restart to 32 bit when ever I want to use it to get to my work laptop remotely.
