    An urgent question, please help,

    Hey all,

    I am a network administrator and i want to access my internal PCs remotly, but dont want to use Logmein or teamviewer or VNC, one of my friends told me that there is a software you can use to access all your internal PCs without your users knowing, and you can watch their screens and so on, could anybody tell me how can i do so ??

    regards,

    Well there isnt much other that that can do what you want for free. The majority use the VNC technology. Why do you not want to use VNC?

    As already mentioned, I would use VNC but you could also try something like iTalc

    Why don't you want to use VNC?

    You could use iTalc:

    Link: iTALC [This has a VNC component built in]

    This worked very well for us on XP [32 Bit] but does not work very well for us now that we have moved to Windows 7 [64 Bit]

    What OS are your clients?

    VNC does work with Windows 7. We use TightVNC with windows 7.

    Something to bear in mind with VNC: The icon in the clients notification area changes colour when you connect to the remote session. There is a hack to change this behavior but I can't remember where to find it.

    TightVNC there isnt its an option built into the software. We dont have that displayed.

    There is a deployment guide here: How To Guide: Deploy VNC via Group Policy

    One of the things to be careful of is justifying why you are monitoring the screens of others and ensuring that you have the instruction to do so from your employer. The laws about this vary across the world, but even if you look at it on an ethical level it is a good idea to be open with people about it.

    Also remember that if this is to monitor children ... Act 16 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

    "no child shall be subject to arbitrary or unlawful interference with his or her privacy….or correspondence"

    And the exact interpretation of this will vary ... so be careful. Document what you are going to do and get backing from SLT.

    I wrote a custom launcher for TightVNC to solve just this problem. In a nutshell it will copy the server EXE to the target machine, write the configuration registry keys, register the EXE as a service and start it, and connect the viewer. When the viewer is closed, it'll clean up everything on the target machine by deleting the files and removing the registry keys. This requires you to have local admin to the target computer, the remote registry service started, access to the admin share, and remote management enabled. The source and a compiled version are attached to this post. You'll need .Net 4.0 installed to run it.

    You'll also need to enable Secure Attention Sequence in Group Policy for services on the client machine. Without this you will be unable to send control-alt-delete key sequences to the client to unlock it.

    As GrumbleDook said though, you have to make sure this doesn't violate any expectation of privacy and that your users have signed an acceptable usage policy that states this can be done. Don't use VNC over a public network either without tunneling it through a VPN as only the username/password is encrypted.

    The tray icon can be changed via registry setting. So the user will never know that his PC is being remotely controlled.

    You can use Skeep VNC console to roll out VNC to clients..... You can customize which password to use and also the icon on the taskbar. Brilliant program and it's free.
