Access PC remotely with Iperius Remote Desktop
Accessing a PC remotely is one of the most common operations performed in an interconnected world, for multiple reasons: the expansion of networks and global distances, emergencies and lockdowns caused by the Covid 19 pandemic, the widespread presence of multinationals with offices in every corner of the world and all the need for remote support between companies and remote work.
We are constantly witnessing an epochal change in the world of work, with more and more companies adopting different models of remote working to allow their employees to effectively combine personal needs, monthly expenses and productivity .
Furthermore, all those remote support and remote technical assistance services, which were already an integral part of companies with customers in every region of the world, have become even more decisive for the efficiency of multiple processes. Any IT company that produces and sells software through digital-only channels needs to be able to make remote desktop connections to provide customer support quickly and effectively.
Having made these necessary premises, it is clear that the software for remote access of PC, Server and MAC are critical and essential tools for all remote assistance and remote working activities.
Among the best programs to access a PC remotely there is certainly Iperius Remote , which is also available in a free version . We talk about it here, showing with a short tutorial how easy and immediate it is to access a computer remotely, to work on it as if you were physically there.
The first thing to do is download Iperius Remote on your PC or MAC, from the download pages:

You obviously have to get it downloaded and started by the remote user as well. The software will automatically connect at startup and be ready to receive the connection. The remote user will see this window:
The remote user will then has to communicate to you, by telephone or other digital means, his nine-digit ID and his random password (for maximum security, the software generates a new random password at every start).

Unattended remote access
Another aspect to consider is that of unattended remote access, i.e. the situation in which an employee who works remotely or a technician who needs to connect to a server for maintenance must be able to access without user intervention from the other party. To do this, Iperius allows the installation as a service: the program will be started and connected automatically each time the system is booted, in this case with a custom (and therefore fixed) password that must be specified during the installation phase. Anyone who knows the ID and password can connect to the remote device at any time.
To enable the unattended mode just use the related option:
