But the most important factor to consider for any remote access system is how to remotely connect to another computer. As there are three most common consumer operating systems, namely- Windows, Mac and Chrome, the initial setup process is just the same. Firstly one has to setup the admin program on the local computer, then one has to setup a client program on the “remote” computer and then create a network connection between the two systems. As all the three systems have their own process for setting up remote access, so let us have a look at each one of them:

  • Installing remote access on Windows: Windows generally uses a baked-in remote access program that is known as Remote Desktop Connection and you’ll be able to access the programs, files as well as network resources from one on the other with the help of Windows and internet connection. Before getting started, one has to make sure that you are having login access to both the systems.

  • Installing remote access on Mac: There are some of the features that exemplify the differences between the Macs and the Windows along with remote desktop connections. As Window’s RDC works just on some OS editions while requiring the kind of moderate dive into the inner working, there are some of the systems like the Apple Remote Desktop that rally works. For one who is having Mac OS, they just need to install the admin version of the Apple Remote Desktop from the Mac App Store on the local computer. After this, one has to wait for the other enabled computers. As soon as it is installed, the client devices need to appear within the admin program’s main computer list.

  • Installing remote access on Chrome: Google has taken an OS agnostic approach for the remote system controls. The Chrome OS works through the browser from the PC, Mac or the Linux systems along with providing basic screen sharing as well as temporary admin control to its users. As a result, the remote access can be done on the Chrome browser too by having some basic facilities.

Thus, this is how the remote access can be provided to the users working on different types of OS and wants to access their data remotely from various accessible areas. This surely makes data to access easily as one can access their desktop easily by opting the remote access technique. As a result, this technique ultimately leads to the benefit of the company or the organization for which one is working for.
