Default Remote desktop question

Please Login to Remove!

Not very technical here and new to BB. My question is this: is there an application that would allow me to navigate my work PC from my blackberry?

My workplace IT dept has restricted wireless handheld devices access to some of these applications. Although, Im able to access these same applications from my home PC, therefore I suspect access is blocked as a result of the
Mac address which alerts the server it is a wireless handheld device.

I have a Verizon Storm and hope that there may be some alternative solutions to accessing my desktop applications strictly from the office.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

RDM+ from Shape, but if you have an IT policy blocking third party apps you can't do anything then talk to manage to remove the policy.

MochaSoft has a VNC Client your can use on a BB, but you must install a VNC server on the PC.

Steve thanks for the recommendation on the RDM. Im not sure if IT actually blocks third party apps or just blocks wireless devices from accessing specific applications. Im hoping that with a product like RDM I can open the applications without it recognizing it as a wireless device....whats your opinion?

Thanks.
