    I'm trying to help my wife with her online schooling. The problem is I'm stuck at the fire station for a 24 hour shift. Is it possible to screen share like we do at home while I'm at the station? If not are there any alternatives?

    Any help would greatly be appreciated :D
    Thanks in advance.

    found it nevermind

    You can use teamviewer. This requires you to give a different password everytime (unless you set it otherwise) and to install a client on your computer. Or you could use logmein which works through your browser. I use logmein most of the time but teamviewer may be better for a different situation. Logmein is good because you can use any computer without having to install anything to screen-share with a computer you have already set up.
