connecting to PC using IP address??
How do I break into a computer once I have the IP address? I am a tech. doing pc repair, and web design, I want to add network consultant to my services. I know how to find/ crack network securities and get into the network, but once I'm in and have the ip's of the computers. How do I get into the PC's. I realize it's illegal, but my purpose is for use as a consultant. I am a legite owner, and my clients would be signing off, allowing me into their systems.

network securities, and get into the network, but once I'm in, and have the IP's of the computers. How do I get into the PC's? I realize it's illegal without proper authorisation,
but my purpose is for use as a consultant. I am a legitimate

, allowing me into their systems. To keep others from seeing please reply to:

First move? Google "penetration testing"
Secondly, once you are in the network, why are you interested in individual PCs? All you will find there is Micro$haft software and my personal pr0n collection. Fancy your chances with AES512 encryption?.............. and it is really cool pr0n

Learn how networks work.. Get certified, preferably Cisco..

Watch your language. If you're doing legit work for clients, then you're
not "breaking into their systems". It's called "remote access". And it's
not illegal when done with permission. In fact, most OS's make it easy.
MS's built in apps for remote access are RDC (remote desktop connection)
and Netmeeting. There's a slew of 3rd-party apps like VNC and Remote
You're not going to get any work advertising you break into folks' systems.

ok, sorry for all the confusion. It's not my intention to try to sell or advertise here. I just wanted to explain what I wanted to do the easiest way possible, so please excuse my terminology and wording. Second, my goal is to show customers vulnerbility, networks-easy. But why would they be concerned about someone getting into their network, if I can't show them what happens then? that's where I need help. I have everything needed to access networks and software to physically access pc's, but I need to show it remotely to have it do any good for the purpose of network weaknesses. Your help and feedback is appreciated. thanks.

I think that you need to do a lot more study on network architecture and the principles of network security. Once you access a network you go after the server(s) not the connected PCs. If anything, the connected PCs and their users are your way in.
In a networked environment the desktops should not contain anything of importance. Everything should be on the servers to allow centralised, shared, access and backup.
In all civilised parts of the World, the law requires that personal data are protected. Check your local regulations. Otherwise format c:\ may be relied upon as a wakeup call
But why would they be concerned about someone getting into their network
To be honest with you; you are wasting your time if your customers don't even understand why they should secure their systems. What they need is a pencil a pad and an abacus.
The way people make money in this area is by examining and testing a customer's existing security arrangements. If there are none, you really don't have a customer.

thank you for your input, I appreciate it. to be honest, you're probably a little beyond me. I was thinking on a smaller scale. I was just playing on the computer, and found it disturbing how easy it was to get into "secured" wireless networks, so rather than use that negatively I would use it for good and help to make them more secure. I may be in a little over my head here, thanks, I'll probably stick to setting up networks, and computer repair for now.
I couldn't agree with you more, "if you cannot do someone any good, don't do them any harm"
thank you all for your help.
