    I need to connect to my home iMac from my office or when traveling on the road via my MBP. I need to be able to access images and files located on my drives connected to home iMac and view, edit, and/or transfer or email them from my MBP while I am away from home. What would be a solution to use to accomplish this?

    From the top from my mind.....

    can be done in various modes/capabilities with Team Viewer, LogMeIn, Apple´s ARD and Microsoft RD

    I use TeamViewer, which is free for personal use and works with Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Ubuntu, iPhone, iPad, etc. It's very secure and quite simple to set up and use (no messing around with ports), which comes in handy if providing remote support to those who aren't very computer literate. You can talk them through the setup on their end and be connected to them in less than a minute. I prefer it over LogMeIn because it includes free file transfers between computers, a feature I use frequently.
