“You can get there from here”

We’ll explore this essential tool for the modern computer helper. We'll start with a brief history of remote access -- before we had it, PC Anywhere and dialup, Highspeed internet and the arrival of realtime remote access.
We'll discuss the current options, with demonstrations of Logmein, RemotePC, Anydesk,, Radmin
We’ll discuss the pros and cons of each, security issues, and business/money issues

Please join us for a spirited exploration and discussion, facilitated by Adam Frost, current president of BNUG and coordinator of Computer Care and Learning, a computer helping company in Boston. To share your ideas in advance of the meeting, please contact Adam at [masked] or by phone[masked].

Schedule: Munchies, Q&A, and general discussion 6:30pm; meeting starts at 7pm and must end by 8:45pm per Microsoft requirements.

We will meet at the new Microsoft Offices, 5 Wayside Rd, Burlington MA. You need to bring your government-issued ID such as a driver's license to enter the building.

GETTING THERE without a car
Need a ride? Adam Frost is providing a mini-bus service to and from the meeting from Forest Hills; call him at[masked] to arrange.
(The link also has info about driving to the site.)

We are continuing our tradition of each of us bringing some potluck food to share. We will provide the plates, glasses, and utensils. Please aim for bringing healthy food, as many of us are struggling to eat healthier stuff (but don't make it so healthy that it doesn't taste good!). Thank you.
And of course we always accept donations to help keep the group running; thanks.
