What's the Best Way to Give Far-Away Virtual Assistants Access to Software on My Computer? ("Best"= most secure, cheapest, simplest, most hassle-free)
Hi, I'd like to give access to software that I own to other people, preferably at times that I'm asleep and my computer is off. I'm considering renting a VPS, and installing therein the software I want them to use. Of course, the software I'd be sharing with them would be XP-based... is that a problem, given the fact that VPSs are usually Linux? Is WINE adequate for this? While I am also entertaining the possibility of using a desktopsharing app to just give VAs access to specified folders and apps on my machine, I'd rather install the necessary software on a VPS and have them use that. Any suggestions you can give me, including other and better ways of doing this, would be much appreciated... Thanks. :)
