To understand the term remote access, let’s put it down in simple away. Access by remote (location). Imagine you’re planning to take a long holiday to relax and rejuvenate by spending some time alone or with family on a nice beach with or a hilltop area but as you know we live in a capitalist society where your worth is determined by the amount of money you make for the organization you work for.
Obviously you’re not allowed to take so many leaves. Your boss is going to be mad if you go away without telling. What can be done in such a situation? This is the point where remote access comes to your rescue.
Remote access means you can access your computer even when you’re far away from it, be it your personal laptop or the office computer assigned to you for work. There are two kinds of network that can help you to access your computer even when you’re far away from it.
Local Area Network (LAN) – this network is connected with either a computer or a remote LAN. Even though a remote LAN is preferred over a single connected computer, it costs more than the former and should be avoided if you don’t have much use of remote access or your budget is small.
Virtual Private Network (VPN) – by tunneling and encryption, VPN establishes a connection between remote devices and users and provides access to the network or device you need. Though a reliable service for small businesses, VPN is said to be the least used of all the networks for remote access due to the alleged poor service it provides in this area. VPNs are used for remote access on Wide Area Networks (WAN).
To Remote desktop, you need to establish a client/server model first. The client would be the Virtual Network Computing (VNC) viewer. This VNC viewer is installed on the computer to be accessed and a server component is installed on the remote computer (from which you’re going). The VNC viewer and the server component is connected to a common network.
All the movements of the keys and button pressed on keyboards and mouse used is registered in the network. Perhaps the most advantageous thing about the remote desktop is that you can save the expenses of additional mouses and keyboards by accessing the computers by this service which is reliable. In the future, a more advanced version of this will be available.
