    class management for thin clients

    im wondering if anyone can tell me or find me some software for teachers to use,(similar to netop) to manage thier class with internet locking mouse keybards and can monitor etc

    we are running a blade center!!on windows server 2003 and use citrix but we need the software to run over terminal services

    does anyone have any ideas!!! we wuld love the soultion to be free but we doubt that will happen

    we have net op for the desktop machines but teachers struggle to keep control of class using thin clients

    AB Tutor is supposed to handle TS now - we'll find out in a few weeks when we have a go with it.

    NetSupport definately runs over TS. I'm pretty confident that VNC could also be used - I've been toying with using VNC on the terminals (as opposed to the servers) and then some kind of viewer software. This should reduce overhead on the terminals servers and also reduce costs.

    I've tested ABTutor v5 (version 4 doesn't work) on Citrix Presentation server 4.5. It works fine.

    Thanks we have tried vnc but you cant lock all keyboards ad blank screen

    we wanted something like net op where you can view a thumb nail of all desktops so the teachers can keep a eye without to much bother!


    when we spoke to the guys at lan view they said it didnt work over ts?? is this true?

    thanks again

    we used to use syncroneyes from smart technology, but it wasn't over terminal services, not sure if it would work

    iTALC. Free, based on VNC, locks keyboards and screens and provides thumbnail view of user's screens. I believe I've heard it works on thin clients.

    Novus told me that NetSupport performed very badly on Citrix boxes can anyone confirm this as we use Ranger Remote which is rebadged Netsupport and wouldn't mind using it if the Citrix shadowing doesn't provide multiple session viewing.
