    Assistance using PDA? Both users see screen

    Hi, is there a way i can use a pda to assist (or control) an xp pro pc with both the pda and pc able to view the screen?

    I want to do this over wireless, or possibly bluetooth.

    I know i can remote into the desktop but this logs the user out of the pc, also i need sounds etc to still play on the PC

    Thanks for any help

    I think VNC have a WM version that you can use, allowing presentation and control modes.

    Logmein.com also works on WM but the screen refresh is a bit slow to use on the PDA.

    I have never used the VNC version but im guessing it will work ok, but the Logmein.com route works 100% that i know.

    I think each can be done with activesync or wifi (the PDA just needs a internet connection)

    Let me know if you find a better solution

    There's also a NetSupport client that allows you to control PCs I believe.
