    Remotely controlling/viewing networked computers

    Okay,

    So I can remotely access another computer in the school to install software/make changes, however I've been asked by my boss to find a way to be able to remotely view pupils sessions.

    I have looked on the Forum, and found software like RM Tutor, and a few others - made a big mistake of installing one on the server - which then had a hissy fit, so I had to uh, restart that. I think we don't have the rights to actually change anything on our server.

    Anyway, I have no idea how I could go about managing this without installing anything! Any help would be wonderful~

    Many Thanks~

    Synchroneyes is good and very easy to install. It can be rolled out via GP as an MSI and goes on really easily.

    Same for the teacher install, once its on there its easy to use also!

    There is a product called MST Lanview which we use and is very good. You have to install the client on each machine and then the server on your machine. If you want, PM me and I shall send you the install files as i dont think you can download it anymore. We are using TightVNC version 2 on an WinXP Environment. I have however, installed it on Win7 and some of the features dont work at the mo, but i have heard that the writers are coming back later this year.

    Wow, thank you for the quick responses!

    I'm going to try Skeep first, and I'm familiar with UltraVNC!
