remote control

Refers to a program's or device's ability to control a computer system from a remote location. Remote-control programs for PCs enable you to access data stored on your home systemeven when you are traveling.

Remote control is different from remote access. In remote control, only keystrokes and screen updates are transmitted between the two machines as all processing originates in the remote-control device. In a remote access setup, the user is logged ontothe network, using the phone line as an extension to the network. Thus, all traffic has to flow over a low-speed telephone line.
