This is a question IT Support

Our IT support guy has been in the job since 1979, and never misses an opportunity to pick up a mouse and say "Hello computer" into it, Star Trek-style. Tell us your tales from the IT support cupboard, either from within or without.

Evidently some explanation is in order.
If you don't know where your computer is physically located, but you can interact with it over the network, get it to run a script which continually beeps. Follow the sound of the beep until you find your computer.

That script fragment I posted above will do just that.

Is that helpful enough for you? Good.

I love that quote from Bash, something similar happened to me at university
Places like Logmein.com are pretty good if you're looking to set it up. Anything more complicated, I am unable to help you with.

What did you want to know?


Personally, I use TeamViewer, and have never had any problems with it...

Second vote for logmein.com
Although, you could browse through here: Lifehacker, Remote Access
