    We use it here on our citrix/thin client setups (approx 90), a few teething problems at first but have been rectified resonably easily

    Thanks for the reply Steve. Am I right that if you fix the IP of the thin client devices that they appear in the control console as the client name rather than the name of the logged on user?

    Were the initial problems easy to sort?

    Cheers.

    We use it here too for thin clients, and it works flawlessly. The way it works is you define the Terminal servers in the program settings, then it connects to those and opens the list of connected people, presenting each machine as it would any other.

    No messing with IP addresses etc...

    Excellent i'm downloading the trial now

    EDIT:

    I'd actually heard that you had to set static IP's to group them into rooms, is this not the case?

    No, you setup ABTutor on one machine. Then you can either group PCs together manually or use AD Groups/OUs as a basis for groups. You then save your configuration off to a network location and point all the other ABTutor installs at it using a command line option. Thus you get centralised configuration of your groups.

    AB Tutor Control Knowledgebase :: Version 5 - do we need to recreate a set of policies for each tutor workstation, or is there a file which can be created / copied to quickly put a base set of policies into place?

    Thanks Steve for your earlier replies to Grant.

    Grant works with me and I've been trying to get V 6.3 working with thin clients. I have an issue where:
    1. I installed tutor on my PC setting the connection password
    2. Ran up ABT
    3. Set a Administrator password (different to the connection one)
    5. Closed ABT then re-opened without putting in a password i.e. as a Tutor
    6. Tried to connect to clients and they failed with 10061 errors
    7. Closed ABT re-opened as Administrator
    8. I can connect to the clients OK

    Does this ring any bells with you or have you any ideas on what may be wrong?

    Thanks

    Are there any ADM templates for this software?

    for installing it you can create a mst that deals with the password
    AB Tutor Control Knowledgebase :: How to automate the installation of AB Tutor Control

    for the internal settings, policies etc, it's all stored in a .dat file.

    I'll take a look at the mst link thanks, where is the .dat file installed? I've installed a trial of the tutor console and added settings but I can't find the .dat file.
