More and more businesses are discovering how useful it can be to add a remote desktop solution to their tech infrastructures. With uses that range from making tech support easier to embracing modern, distributed workforces, implementing a remote desktop client is becoming an integral part of doing business.
Now, more than ever, there are a ton of remote desktop solutions to choose from. With so many options out there, you might be asking yourself, “Why is Netop’s remote desktop client a top choice for users?” We took a look at what differentiates Netop’s solution from the rest of the competition. And what we found might surprise you.
While each of the remote desktop client options out in the market might look the same at first glance, there are some important differences that continually make Netop come out on top.
How Is a Remote Desktop Client Different from a Remote Desktop Server?
First things first. For those of us out there who might not be familiar with the underlying idea behind a remote desktop client, let’s go through the basics of how it works.
Remote desktop services, when installed on a device, allow a user or users to access that device from a separate, remote location – from any platform. One of the most common applications of remote desktop services is desktop screen sharing. In all likelihood, you have already experienced screen sharing in one form or another.
When you initiate a screen sharing session, you are able to view and control the desktop, mouse, and keyboard of a remote computer from your local computer. While viewing the remote computer you can open files, apps, and folders, move and save files, and even update software and system settings.
Remote support software can be extremely useful during a troubleshooting session. It allows a professional, or someone very familiar with your software or product, to tackle an issue directly. This avoids trying to talk through the troubleshooting steps with someone who might be less familiar with the software.
Now for the (slightly) more technical part. There are two main components to remote desktop software. These are the remote desktop client and the remote desktop server. In tech terminology, the word “client” means something slightly different than in the real world, though the meanings are related.
According to TechTerms.com, “In the real world, businesses have clients. In the computer world, servers have clients… The term ‘client software’ is used to refer to the software that acts as the interface between the client computer and the server.” (The Tech Terms Dictionary)
To use Netop as an example, Netop’s remote desktop client is the software that allows you to access a remote device. Let’s say you install Netop’s remote desktop on your computer at work. This device would become the “server” in the client/server relationship. Then, using Netop’s remote desktop client on your laptop, you can access your work computer and the files saved to it locally from anywhere with an internet connection.
