Having only tested this for a short time, the functionality of Autodesk Remote is in line with LogMeIn Free edition. I found the general interaction with software better with Autodesk Remote (plus it includes gesture and keystroke mapping for applications.)If looking at pure performance, if the connection is good then Autodesk Remote feels more fluid, however if the connection speed drops you will notice the graphics streaming more with Autodesk Remote due to the screen starting to pixelate.
Autodesk Remote is currently only localised in English. Are you running a non-english OS? if so it may not currently support the regional settings.
