Have just been using Live Mesh to connect to one of my computers at college and it works a treat :-)
Live Mesh is great for technicians and teachers responsible for looking after school machines. No need to dash across town when something goes wrong with a 'critical' machine. Simply access it from home. Love it!!!
Also, you don't have to worry about disturbing a class, during normal timetabled hours, in order to access a troublesome computer. Simply connect with Live Mesh from another room.
Live Mesh ensures that the screen on the remote computer is blacked out and the machine effectively disabled so that no one can see what you are doing on the machine.
Not only can you access the remote machine's files but you can run any of the programs on that computer, even if they are not installed on your local computer. It is as if you are sitting right in front of the machine itself!
You can also sync and share folders with Live Mesh. Even connect your web-enabled mobile phone and upload photos directly to your 'mesh' folders. 5GB of online storage is allocated for the Live Desktop area.
All you need to start your 'mesh' is a Windows Live ID. Then, simply sign in, download and install the Live Mesh software on each of the computers that you want connected. Finally, add each device to your 'mesh' and you are ready for action.
