PC as a Server?

Greetings Internet,

I own two computers: a stationary with a lot of power, and a notebook with barely any power. Basically, I want to have my stationary do all of the thinking at home and just send my notebook audio and video of what's going on while allowing me to control it, at a low latency. I'd love to know how I could go about setting this up.

Thanks in advance,

  1. The frame rates on that are horrible, I'd like to know if there's something with a very low latency.

    This may be wishful thinking, but I'd just like to know.

    I'm not sure how global this brand is but in England, £11 a month - about sixteen dollars - buys you the service of Go To My PC and it seems to be quite speedy. Go Google - see if it's available where you are.
  3. I'll give it a shot, I'll let y'all know how it goes!
  4. http://www.radmin.com/ has`a program that is inexpensive but has a free 30 day trial period. I've seen this recommended in forums before, but haven't tried it myself. Claims were that it is fast.

    Might be worth a look.

    Cheers!
  5. Thanks for all the help!
  6. Your welcome. Hope it works well for you. If you get a chance after using it (or find something else that is better), post an evaluation of the software back here for other people if you get a chance.

    Happy Computing!
