Controlling my NAS remotely. Tags: VPN NAS / RAID Monitors Servers Networking Last response: March 17, 2006 2:22 PM in Networking Share JokerFMJ2 March 17, 2006 6:30:06 AM Hey, all. I have an old tower that i'm going to mess around with and set up as a NAS Server, but I have a problem. I have two desktops, the NAS Tower and a laptop. I only have two monitor's, though. I wanted to control the NAS Server's Tower remotely using my PC. I need to be able to install programs and use the programs as if I was actually using that PC. Are there programs that will enable me to do this? Does anyone know of a way (that doesn't include hooking a monitor up to it)? And if possible, i'd like it to be cost free, heh. =D Thanks, all.
