@dwboston : under the "Audio Support" column, check out the Remote Desktop Software Comparison...

p.s.- Google is your friend.

you could also set up a secure remote file transfer link between you and your home computer or use an audio/video streaming server.

for remote file transfer - plenty of options... AFP, SFTP, SMB, etc.

just one thing...

do... not... use... FTP!

it's not secure... at... all.

hit me up at @ pskennedysos@gmail.com if you have any other questions...

I'm a video editor that would love to get access to some of my files on a mac pro. Can the reviewer or anyone else comment on whether audio is accessible once logged into the remote computer?

There is no audio when logging in remotely.

I tried using Logmein and I didn't like it whatsoever. iTeleport, though slightly more expensive, provides better stability, is less complicated, and still provides advanced features once you get used to the app.

iTeleport?
It seems a lot less complicated to set up.

Does the iPhone produce the same sounds that you would hear from the computer? This would be a great way to stream movies or listen to music in my iTunes library!

This isn't anything new really I do appreciate the time you put into it and it's great info but you might want to check out teamviewer it tops this hands down.

A comparison review would be useful. I like that LogMeIn has a free option with iPhone support though. Thanks for the overview!
