Many months to make this database so probably many many months to convert it
to a web-based application using SQL Server.
I would end up with a different product that might be better in some ways
and worse in others.
I would use .net if I was going that route. I would use SQL Server (not
just to make you happy).

I think I'll just recommend the user signs up at and spends 15
minutes setting it up so they can run my existing product
over the web. No $10,000 spend.

What would you recommend if I needed more than 1 user logged in per machine?

I can see scenarios will my clients will need that.

Thanks in advance,

Sorry - outside my realm of expertise. I use LogMeIn as an
administrative function, so a single user (me) isn't a problem.

Arvin Meyer has recommended WinConnect. I've not used it because I
haven't needed to, but his recommendation would be quite sufficient
to cause me to try it as the first choice were I to need it.

None of the VNCs will be as good as LogMeIn, because VNC pushes
pixel maps, while LogMeIn (and GoToMyPC, etc.) use the Windows
graphics primitives directly, instead of shipping bitmaps (this is
also what the Remote Desktop Client does). This makes them orders of
magnitude more responsive.

These days, I only use VNC on local networks, never across the
