Change my answer


For your own security you should install a firewall before you consider using a remote desktop control product. Click here to view a range of software firewalls.

Reasons Why

Connecting your computer to the internet without the protection of a firewall is dangerous. It means you have no protection against others connecting to your computer without your knowledge and consent. It also means that your computer is open to infection by many viruses, which take advantage of open ports and can infect your pc without you even running anything.
