    Computer Availability

    Hi everyone,

    I've just noticed this page Student PCs on Canterbury campus - Information ServicesComputing & IT Services - University of Kent and I would like to see if something similar is possible where I work.

    Anyone have any idea how I might be able to re-create this?

    Regards

    Guessing it's done on the same line as "LimitLogins". If you record everytime a computer is logged on, and off (like for purposes of limiting logins) it's just a quick scan of the database/files.

    Only issue would be defining what computers are in what rooms, and on what floor in the first place. And a hassle if you add more :P

    We recently purchased frog with Secure Gateway for external access, my guess is they have setup their system with the KCC VPN?
    We had several staff here at times who were from KCC and had laptops setup to VPN on to their system, so they must have some thing similar to what we admins can use and Secure gateway?

    We are aiming to have this online in september but does mean PCs have to be left turned on, we have a minor glitch at the moment where more then 1 person can not use remote desktop on to a PC and the logon bar is half missing.

    If you have a AD structure . Say Each room has there OWN OU

    It would be quite easy to do this . I would probally recomend writing a PHP script to use the already created Login Tracker script.

    The login Tracker script already shows you how many people are logged on in each room ( OU )
