Being able to connect to your home computer from anywhere is becoming more and more popular. There are a number of reasons an individual may want to connect to their home computer, whether it be to access some files on their hard drive or check their e-mails. Whatever your reason, LogMeIn.com offers a free version of their remote access service for personal use.
One of the great benefits of LogMeIn.com is that it uses the hyper-text transfer protocol tunneling (http) on port 80 to remotely access your computer.
