    Hey everyone,

    i did some searching for a remote desktop like app and did come across RDM+.

    have a few questions.

    1) does rdm+ work well on the tour?

    2) is there an equally good option for free? (logmein, copernic, etc.)

    3) if so does it work well on the tour?


    Thanks.


    EDIT: Sorry too tired at the moment and forgot the question mark.

    First of all, when asking a question, make sure your thread title has a questionmark in it....

    There are a couple of remote desktop apps. RDM+ is the most commong one. I don't know of any free versions.

    Just got RDM+ in yesterday's deal-of-the-day. For what it does, I like it a lot. Keep in mind a program like this isn't for streaming your audio or video to you, but seeing your entire desktop with full access. That brings with it a moderate bit of lag in terms of the screen refresh.

    So yeah, RDM+ works, and works well, on the Tour. If you want to try to research something free, what you are looking for is a VNC program. You'll need to install a VNC server on the computer(s) you want to access (I use TightVNC). Then you'll need to research to see if you can find free VNC viewer for BlackBerry -- I've no idea if any exist or not.

    VNC probably will not get through any corporate firewalls, and might require port forwarding or some settings on a home router to work. RDM+ does seem to get by all these restrictions no problem.

    Basically you get what you pay for... RDM+ takes a lot of the work out of the setup. VNC would be just about as good, albeit with a little more work to set up, and maybe a tiny bit slower than what RDM+ is. At full price, RDM+ is pretty steep, I wouldn't have purchased it if it wasn't the deal of the day.
