    "Webex PCNow is misleading, mobile access it's a joke"

    September 20, 2008   |   By diegozuluaga

    Version: WebEx PCNow 4

    Pros

    30 day trial period.

    Cons

    I tried thinking that I could see my desktop from my iPhone and it's just works an FTP service. Not as a kind of remote desktop control console.

    Summary

    I tried thinking that I could see my desktop from my iPhone and it's just works an FTP service. Not as a kind of remote desktop control console.

    Try gotomypc if you want an excellent product. Mobile service is not available yet. But this product is worth it.

    "Slow, but it works"

    May 19, 2007   |   By Raja Bhat

    Version: WebEx PCNow 3

    Pros

    Easy install, works OK. Stable.

    Cons

    Compared to VPN, its definitely slow. You type in a letter, and only a fraction of a second later it appears on the screen. Tries your patience!

    "Truly Amazing"

    March 13, 2006   |   By LeeT91

    Version: WebEx PCNow 2.0

    Pros

    Brilliant speed is shown to users who use WebEx PCNow is similar to any version of VNC (already stated) but the viewer only needs an ActiveX control, the user does not have to remember their IP address or any other address other than the PCNow's homepage, where the server computer running the software registers itself on, al to be dont is click the name of the maching to remotely administer, then start. I have grown to like this product because it really is one of a kind.

    Cons

    I was first told it was free, but then about a year after having an account they changed to a paid service, however it costs near to nothing.

    "Same general idea as RealVNC, but easier to use and setup. Better than GotoMyPC"

    January 22, 2006   |   By CableguyTK

    Version: WebEx PCNow 2.0

    Pros

    Traffic goes through the web.

    No addition setup required outside of installing the program. Since traffic is through the web there is no port forwarding that needs to be done.

    Very fast program.

    Just sits in the system tray silently.

    If you have an AOL account you get this software for free. Goto AOL Beta (beta.aol.com) and try out the LinkToPC beta. Its WebEx for free.

    Cons

    Its not free.

    It is quite expensive.

    It requires more than one subscription if you intend to use the software on more than one computer.

    Software isn't as responsive as RealVNC. RealVNC allows for faster and more responsive use of the remote computer. This is still the case even if you are using a computer on the home network.

    Better designed for actual REMOTE usage as opposed to usage on a home network since the traffic is through the web and not through the network.
