    iTalc - Remote Logon an entire Class???

    Hi everyone, have a query and hoping someone may be able to help/offer suggestions.

    I have installed the open-source iTalc in my Computer Lab.
    - allows me to see all computers in lab in thumbnail view,
    - allows me to pull up and put on IWB screen any computer in lab - great for modelling work etc
    - allows my "modelling lesson to appear on every screen in lab as well as on IWB if i want to
    - allows me to "lock" (ie disable) input devices from all computers so no one is distracted and fiddling
    - and at end of lesson / day allows me to SHUT DOWN entire lab via iTalc "master " ...... but ........ here is my query ....

    Q: I would love to be able to log on my entire lab using the Remote Log on feature in italc. The Lower school teachers (who use a generic username for their classes would love to be able to do this - instead of having to log on each workstation manually ...... but at moment I cannot seem to get this feature to work. Is anyone able to successfuly use this Remote Log feature on iTalc "master" to log on all computers in their lab/classroom. Is there some trick to it?

    When I try doing this, I enter the username, the password and the domain - but what else do i need to do?? have spent hours trying to figure this - and am seeking ideas from anyone who has had success with this feature.

    Kind regards

    I have been using iTalk for about a year now and it seemed to work straight out of the box. I haven't had an issue remote logging on an entire room however I have experienced issues when trying to use the support feature. THis is a great piece of software but it does have a few glitches still. However, at that price tag I think I can deal with them!

    Hi Jon, Are we talking about the same app? Wasn't ure if you were referring to iTalc (which was my query) or iTalk a totally different app.

    May have solved my own query ...

    I think I may have worked out what was missing - the MAC address. I had entered the IP address. But thanks to Google have discovered that MAC address is crucial for Remote Logon..which was my query.

    Will test this theory out tomorrow.

    Can you advise us as to if Adding the Mac Address worked or not? I am experiencing the same problem!

    I have the same issue and putting in the MAC Address has not helped the issue. I have to restart the icas service with psservice to the computers and then they might log in. I have to continue to restart the service until all computers are logged in.
