I have an adsl connected fast desktop computer behind a belkin wireless g router/ gateway. I want to use PC anywhere or some other software to access my desktop remotely. Ideally I would like to do everything I could do from the desktop except for maybe printing.
With Symantec PC Anywhere host and client 12. 5 would I be able to use say wordperfect installed on the vista desktop to edit documents on the laptop and then save them back to the desktop? If not what can I do with the software? Only gain access to the data which I can then manipulate on the client with whatever software i have on it and then save it back to the desktop? The symantec information doesn't really clarify precisely what can be reasonably accomplished. I assume bandwith also probably plays a part in what one can do?
Are there any security issues I need to be aware of? Thanks ask mefi users.
