    UltraVNC has this facility along with AD authentication. It's the version I use at work.

    Install the video driver on the client. You also might need to mess with the update settings. Failing that, you have a network problem.

    You can use the command line options with the vncviewer software and create standard windows shortcuts to do this.

    We use TightVNC and there's a registry key to hide the tray icon.

    You could also try 'VNCon' meaning console, you can carry out remote installs of VNC over the network and tinternet, just google VNCon and best of all it's totally free. A bit of config needed, but it is so easy.

    Enjoy!

    Re: VNC

    You can even try gencontrol by gensortium you don't have to install a vnc client to access workstations on your network. simply run the exe from your desktop and select find hosts.

    You'd need to open the relevant ports and have them forwarding correctly (or a VPN setup) - my guess is you would have issues with your LEA/RBC to get ports opened.

    You can aslso lock down Tight VNC (as well as remove the tray icon) to be doubly secure. (documentation on how to are on the Tight VNC site).

    How can I hide the system tray icon in WinVNC?

    Win32 TightVNC includes code from TridiaVNC distributions, and therefore it should include Tridia's modification to disable the tray icon. Here is a quote from TridiaVNC 1.3.3 announce:

    * Added registry flag to cleanly disable the tray icon on all platforms and in all modes without affecting other settings. The default is "0" and indicates that the tray icon should not be disabled. A value of "1" will suppress the tray icon for all users.

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\ORL\WinVNC3\DisableTrayIcon DWORD "0"
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\ORL\WinVNC3\DisableTrayIcon DWORD "1"

    Thus, to disable the tray icon, you should start the "regedit" utility from the command line, go to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ORL\WinVNC3\ folder, and create a DWORD parameter with the name "DisableTrayIcon" and the value "1". Then, after restarting WinVNC, the icon will not be shown anymore.

    But please note that hiding the icon is usually not a good idea. For example, if you want to restrict users from changing the server Properties, it might be better to use the AllowProperties setting. For more information, see the description of "AllowProperties", "AllowShutdown" and "AllowEditClients" options in the VNC documentation.
    AllowProperties

    If this is set to zero, the user is not allowed to view the properties dialog and hence cannot change any settings, including the password. Note that this stops all global per-user settings. A valid password must therefore be in force before using this setting, generally in the local default-user setting. Local per-user setting.
    AllowShutdown

    If this is set to zero, the user is not allowed to close down WinVNC. Local per-user setting.

    I use lanview 3 with TightVNC from MST Software, download the TightVNC msi file and the system tray icon is hidden automatically.

    Lanview 3 is really good for remote control of pc's on your network.

    Fog Creek Software produce an application called Copilot (see https://www.copilot.com/) that creates VNC connections over HTTP (in a similar way to how Skype works). I don't know if any free versions are available yet.
