Windows only: Free application Gbridge sets up a virtual private network between any computer over the internet using your Google account as a starting point. Once set up, Gbridge allows you to share files, connect to and remotely control a computer using VNC, sync folders, and back up files to another computer. If you’ve got Google Talk/Gmail chat friends using Gbridge, the app provides the same functionality between your computer and theirs. It provides a great remote desktop share solution for any situation whether it be personal or business. For companies that already use the Google Apps platform this integrates nicely with the infrastructure since everyones email is technically a Google account. This is a great business resource for users to gain remote access to their work computer on the go. It all sounds a little convoluted, but in effect it’s a painless way for anyone to set up a VPN between computers, and assuming you’ve already got a Google account, it doesn’t require you to sign up for anything else. The application could be a bit more intuitive in practice, but in terms of what it accomplishes, it’s a winner. Gbridge is freeware, Windows only. Despite the name, it’s not associated with Google.
