Default Storage of Antivirus and Other Programs for Remote Support

Hi, just wondering what is the most popular or best way to store programs that you want to run on someone's computer remotely? Do people favour SugarSync or Dropbox or another solution? Thanks in advance!

Hi don, its dropbox for me, all the way.

I have d7 updated and stored in my dropbox, for immediate use. That should be all you really need

We have ScreenConnect and the Toolbox feature in that is great as all your tools are available right there on the remote computer.

I use dropbox or the file share feature of TeamViewer depending on the size of the file.

We use a combination of Dropbox and the ScreenConnect Toolbox feature that seeyabro mentioned. The toolbox is really nice as we can launch many of our tools on the clients machine with just a couple of quick clicks. However, for more of our clients we are using TeamViewer through GFI MAX and therefore cannot use the SC toolbox feature.

Why not? Open up TV through GFI... in TV, go to your site and open up an Attended SC session where you use the Toolbox. On some systems, I prefer a double connection as, once in a while, SC gets buggy and doesn't refresh or just locks up.

She must know her stuff. Her company is "One of the leading online computer support providers".

I mean, who wouldn't dig up a dead thread to post a comment that's not only irrelevant but inaccurate other than someone who on the leading edge of remote support?

Remote work (onsite or over internet) I use my webservers cache of autoupdated installers (shell scripts and wget are awesome).

In Shop? I have that same script running on my office server.
