NetOp 6.0 - remote access software

This remote access package comprises the usual components for accessing one system from another via a network or through a modem - done on a proper server/client basis. Included are the Host (which must be on each PC), and the Guest (an interface and control mechanism for providing complete control over another PC). The Log Server is the logging mechanism (and includes security information on who has done what), while the NetOp Remote Control Gateway can be set up as a gateway for all incoming and outgoing calls (via modem, ISDN, IPX and TCP/IP, among others).

One feature is a little worrying: silent installation means you can drop NetOp onto workstations without users realising it. Unscrupulous users could make a lot of trouble with this.

NetOp itself is easy both to install and use. It'll work on any Windows version, DOS or OS/2, and the graphical interface makes it simple to use. Setup and configuration is user-friendly and should present no difficulty to any IT staff.

Remote control and file transfer facilities are included. There's also remote reboot, a chat mode (including voice chat) and many security features. Transfer speed via a LAN is high, and although there is some slowing down across a modem/ISDN link, speeds are still good - there is little difference between a keystroke and its appearance on the remote screen.

Above all else, the program has been designed with flexibility in mind. From the single-user scenario of a person needing to access their PC on the road, to remote configuration and network maintenance that larger companies undertake on a regular basis, NetOp is well worth viewing.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
