If you have a smartphone in your pocket, a data plan, and a few computers that need monitoring, you can set up a convenient PC remote management system that lets you check on your PCs from anywhere, saving you time, money, and (potentially) your business.
A mind-boggling array of remote PC management software is available, but this guide focuses on installing and using an excellent tool called PC Monitor from MMSoft Design Ltd. IPC Monitor is designed to help you administer a few systems from any smartphone or tablet that has a live Internet connection. PC Monitor is available for mobile devices running Apple’s iOS, Google’s Android, or Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating systems. Companion applications for the PC are available for Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux.
PC Monitor is free to use on up to three PCs. MMSoft will sell licenses to end users who want to monitor more than three systems from a single account; the company also markets its PC Monitor Enterprise Server, which can be hosted on an internal network. The free mobile app and its PC counterparts are full-featured and immensely useful, but only on systems that maintain an active connection to the Web; both the PC and the mobile components of PC Monitor require access to MMSoft’s servers in order to interface with each other.
Installing and configuring PC Monitor takes only a few steps—and if you don’t customize the notifications, rules, and monitors, you can complete the installation in minutes. For our description of the process, we use an Android-based tablet and Windows 7-based PCs, but the steps are virtually identical across all platforms.
