As anyone used remote access software such as pc anywhere on a network?
I'm looking at using an old cyrix 266 machine as a fileserver, and want to be able to control it remotely from another machine on my network.
Anyone have any ideas?

I can think of a few ways:
Windows: use VNC (http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/download.html)
to control it (similar to Terminal Server f/ NT) And standard File & Printer Sharing for file sharing.
Linux/Unix: Use Telnet for a terminal, FTP for file sharing (or even SAMBA, if you can set it up...)

One of the best pieces of software for this in my opinion is NetSupport. I use it at work to take care of 350 computers in 5 counties all on our network. It works great.

Also, "Remote Anything" and "PCAnywhere" are titles to do the same... PC Anywhere is a well-known proggie used by alot of businesses.. If you have Windows NT or 2000 you can use Terminal Services.
