    You could use dropbox with this in order to do file sharing and transferring couldn’t you?

    There are some downsides in using LogMeIn. The free version isn’t right for remote technical support, because it costs $129 a month, and this is quite a sum for such a service. I would recommend RHUB remote access. It’s a one time fee product. You need not to pay any monthly fee. It even allows easy, fast, and secure remote access.
