    Yup, and on large networks that rollout can be done via warehouse deployment to keep net traffic down. Nice bit of kit DNA

    I looked in the reseller list and theres only Ireland there. And I'll say that what they quoted me makes me think you guys are getting it cheaper because no matter how good it is we can't afforde that
    All NetSupport products are available through NetSupport Software

    AFAIK we are running a special offer at the moment where if you purchase NetSupport Manager (which comes with NetSupport School) you get NetSupport DNA Pack 1 for free. Pack 1 covers all inventory modules but doesn't include metering, distribution and alerting modules.

    Check the link above for details

    Re: Net Support manager

    I'm the product manager for SMART's SynchronEyes, and as biased as John.

    We're worth looking into as well- we won an award at BETT last month and just introduced some new security features. Steljes sells Sync in the UK.

    I'm in between sales and the tech guys if you have any issues.

    Re: Net Support manager

    @Dos_Box, John, rdhawkins etc

    Everone says NSM is good but never give the reasons why.

    In another thread there was some specific questions but no answer.
    Now we have a NSM specific thread I'll try again. Does NSM do:

    User account creation including email accounts, home drives etc?
    Disk quotas?
    Print quotas?
    Automated Windows build deployment?
    Application Software packing and deployment?
    Centralised lock down setting?
    Centralised logging of logons and activity?

    From all accounts NSM/NSS does remote session control very well but what about all the other network admin stuff.

    Would you let a newby tech (or even a teacher) use NSM?

    Re: Net Support manager

    I would let a teacher use NetSupport School as thats what its for. NSM is aimed, originally i would assume, at the Corperate environment where as its being aimed at schools now hence the school component being included.

    As far as I know it doesnt do
    User account, disk quotas, print quotas (but you could use NSM to connect to your server / workstation and do them directly on it)
    Automated Windows build deployment? - Nope
    Application Software packing and deployment? - Nope
    Centralised lock down setting? - Nope
    Centralised logging of logons and activity? - Nope

    But some of those appear to be in NS DNA I think (I dont use DNA so don't know for sure).

    NS is a very talented Remote Desktop / Assistance tool, it has a should for help type feature, can remote script things, monitoring, testing, internet connection stuff, screen showing, teaching tool as well as from a techie point of view assistance tool.

    Re: Net Support manager

    The other best thing to do is go to its website and look as its a VERY good site and gives the information quite clearly and simply

    Does NetSupport Manager use the Active Directory User/Password for authentication?

    Has anyone else had problems getting the Wake-On-Lan facility to work correctly? Mine will work once right after the BIOS has been set to WOL and then it refuses to there-on.

    Ive set it to only allow Domain Admins to connect to workstations so it asks me to authenticate and I assume talks nicely to AD and then it goes yup I am.
