CrossLoop (http://www.crossloop.com/) is a new program which works like Radmin and RealVNC, allowing one to host a server and another to connect to that person’s PC and control it (Like Windows’ Remote Assistance, minus fail).
The guys that made the program claim that there is no need in port forwarding, but that’s because they only tested it with useless firewalls.
How can I get it to work with Comodo? It says nowhere what port it needs to be open for hosting a server, I actually think it’s random.
Have you had a look at http://www.useranywhere.com? This is Comodo’s take on remote access and, although it’s still in the alpha stage of development, it’s not too bad at all. Well worth a look.
After quickly looking at the CrossLoop site, I can only suggest that you use CFPs Log as a guide to what you need to open (ie. reviewing the blocks).
I lost all hope when I read the first bit of their FAQ…
[b]I have a firewall installed - Do I need to configure the router?[/b]
Absolutely not - Crossloop does not require configuration of the router. Just click on download and install the software. Click on the CrossLoop Icon and you are ready to connect with anyone securely.
I have a firewall… do I need to configure the router? No? Erm… I do hope that is a typo… it makes no sense… unless you think because you have X you must configure Y. Firewall aside, even a basic router will reject unsolicited connection attempts. I don’t get it. Maybe, Panic’s idea is best. ;D
Heh, I’ll check it out. I liked CrossLoop because it was just like RealVNC/Radmin but VERY simple, so I could help people that don’t know anything about computers or such that don’t know any English.
Of course I can connect to people without forwarding anything because I don’t act as a server, but still, I hoped I could figure it out. I’ll try both of your tips.
UserAnywhere costs money… Thanks but I’m not going to spend money on a software that has so many free replacements (Radmin, RealVNC, heck, even Windows comes with built-in Remote Assistance :p).
I’ll try checking the logs thing.
