Just to explain and differentiate a little further I believe WebEx and
GotoMyPC are both products that effectively allow you to "break" through a
firewall without having to reconfigure it. I believe they both work by
having both the client and server PC connect to a thrid-party server which
joins them together.
PcAnywhere and VNC, by comparison, are passive in that they sit on the
server waiting for a connection - the client requires direct access to the
server so requires firewall configuration etc.
GotoMyPC is an excellent product out of interest, but is only really useful
for remote diagnostic and perhaps accessing the odd file on a pc. I
wouldn't fancy running a telnet application session in it for roo long!
