    Gone over before. I know. I saw the a couple of threads. All too old to reopen.

    Anyway. I am looking for a Remote Control Option for my Mac clients. I do not want to go through the trouble of opening ports for 50 + clients at multiple locations. Some have DHCP and others don't.

    I currently am using LogMeIn for my Windows Clients and it works like a champ. Any ideas of a similar software for my mac clients? Web based would work best and the controlling machine can be windows or mac based. Like I said, the only limitation is setting them to static IPs and opening ports. VNC and Remote Desktop are out (at least to the best of my knowledge). Most computers will be at multiple different locations. Some laptops (mobile users). Not concerned about cost.

    I use TeamViewer for all my computers. Works on Windows & Mac. Also have viewer for iOS as well as Windows RT (I have a Surface).

    It's free and has a keychain type system (but do not have to use it) that keeps all the computers tied to an account so you can see their status and simply double click on the computer to connect.

    It can also do file transfers between the computers which is handy at work.

    The only thing that's annoying about Teamviewer is that everytime you disconnect it pops up a message about thanks for using, but do you want to buy a license. But the license is only for corporate usage, the program is absolutely free for personal use. So it's annoying, because they are nagging me for something that there is no solution to.
