*Read well before reply. This is a special case* ;)
I can remotely-admin a machine by using VNC software or default Windows Remote Desktop, but what if for security reasons, I cannot connect from outside?
I need something like "reverse" remote connection. See, in a normal case, I am the Client, and the other PC is the server who listens for incoming connections. Is it possible to do it the other way? I.e., the other PC connects to my PC, but I'm still being the Client?
I would like to leave the other PC running at night hours, continuously verifying if my PC is on (thru a Ping or something), and connect to it as soon it be detected and my Client software is started.
I tested UltraVNC previously, which seems to include this feature, but it's not perfect cause: 1) connection had to be established before leaving the remote PC, and 2) it never reconnected when for some reason I had to restart my PC or the connection dropped.
