Does shuffling between a laptop for travel ease and a desktop PC for functionality have you feeling out of touch when you're on the road? Remote access to your base computer is within reach with 3amLabs' LogMeInFree.

This free utility allows you to log in securely via an SSL gateway to another Internet-connected computer. Setup is simple; download the software to the computer you'd like to connect to and the rest is run through your browser. The user-friendly interface allows you to open remote files, check email and run programs remotely.

LogMeInFree is a fantastic, simple and free remote-access solution. The company also offers a pro version of the software with further functionality at www.logmein.com.
