Connecting to your friends desktop has never been this much easier. No need to go for any pay services (like GoToMeeting, Logmein etc.,) to connect remote computer. Windows Remote Desktop connectivity works perfect only, when we are in LAN or WAN sort of networks. But when it comes to Internet, due to LAN IP addressing it is not possible to establish such connectivity using Remote Desktop tool exist in windows computers. Thats the reason we need to look for some alternative tool to fulfill this requirement. Moreover the tool we select must not have a complex procedure or installation steps. If it is a web based tool to perform such task then it will be better too.
