Remote access software is a type of software that enables a local user to connect to and access a remote computer, server or network.
It enables connectivity of two or more computers/network nodes that are on separate networks and/or in different geographical locations.
Remote access software is typically installed on local computer or can be deployed over the network/Internet on a remote access server. Remote access software works by creating a connection between a local and remote host over a network or Internet connection.
A user dials in or requests access on the remote computer or server. Once authenticated, the local user can access the entire desktop/server or configured services such as data or file download.
