- PC Anywhere
- Citrix client
- Terminal Services
- Pro Comm / Pro Comm plus..
- etc etc
On occasion, I've gotten into a machine while I'm outside of the USA, to download my mail in outlook on a machine in NY (for example), and to log on to the forums etc. This way, all of my daat is centrally managed, my favorites don't have to travel with me etc etc.
