I'm looking for a remote desktop application but can't seem to find one that's equal to TeamViewer, but free.
What I'm looking for is something that I can install on my main home PC and then run remotely from a USB flash drive, NOT the web browser! It must also be able to run behind a firewall and not require elevated permissions.
Every other remote desktop application I have found so far runs through a web browser or requires me to install its platform onto the remote PC... thankyou.
They HAVE to be INSTALLED on both machines....otherwise everyone would be hacking from a USB stick....

TeamViewer uses a password and username system to connect, it isn't some auto instant connect boom! It requires login credentials to connect -_-
Also TV supports a portable version of their software that can be installed on a USB flash drive that runs on a platform from the USB drive. The portable console does not require any installment or elevated privileges of the computer to allow it to connect to another. (And that is what I am looking for, but in a free format!) Now the PC that you connect to with the portable software does require the program installed on it in order to make the connection.
I was talking about PC`s .... and so were you in your question....

A portable console as in a program/dashboard! Portable Program that doesn't require installment on the main PC!!! bahh forget it... You will have to try it out for yourself to know what i'm talking about...
USB and web browser:
If you can run things through a browser, but don't want to use the other PC's browser for some reason, why not install the free Firefox version that boots and runs from the thumb drive?
Use TV portable. Extract it in a folder and run the exe. NO INSTALLATION NECESSARY.
Ok then why do I have this trial account thing? I'm only using it for personal use, yet I get a trial account popup saying I need to buy it... I thought that it was 7 days only and after that you cough up the big $$ to use it any further.
Edit: Oh are you talking about the quick support? I didn't think it allowed remote access from another computer.
Why cant it require elevated permissions or firewall ports opened?
if so stop trying to hack your work / school computers.
You are horribly informed sir. If you had to deal with a fat bitch that never updated her computers so we couldn't use them for real college research then you would understand exactly why I want to be able to use my computer! (No I do not have the laptop it is currently broken and I don't have the money nor time to fix it.)
