Possible Duplicate:
What’s the best Remote Desktop Application?

What software/ web service can I use (both free and commercial) to allow people to remote desktop into my computer from anywhere as long as there is internet?

Same thing, but reverse: what software/web service can I use to access other people's computer?

It should work through all the firewall, easy to use, simple to setup, intuitive, etc.

I think for the first case, would be easiest if the software creates a link (sent via email) and the person just clicks, enters some access code, and tada he's connected.

Same with the other case.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Many similar questions, just click on your remote desktop tag if you're interested. You also haven't specified an operating system. – John T Nov 19 '09 at 5:54

Fog Creek Copilot does exactly this. Link here

I believe that that is free only on the weekends. – Nathan Fellman Nov 19 '09 at 9:24

I think a recent question on these lines was answered with VNC as the solutions.
You could also look up Opera-Unite for simple needs.

The latest Skype allows you to do that.

You can use VNC to login to a remote machine. It has a Java mode that allows you to connect with a browser.

I believe the latest MSN Messenger allows you to.

Finally, Windows comes with a built-in remote desktop tool.

do i have to install any skype addons to do remote desktop? – sivabudh Nov 19 '09 at 5:57

Citrix makes GoToMyPC which sounds like exactly what you are looking for. Their software is very easy to set up and use, but it is commercial. If you're willing to spend some time setting things up, VNC is a free alternative.
