    Alternative to Net Support Tools

    I am looking for a system to give similar functionality to the Net Support offering.

    Having just had a telephone quote for the software, it is too expensive for us.

    Is anyone aware of any alternative and less expensive products.

    We want to be able to lock screens, display user screens on the IWB, broadcast user screens to the rest of a class, shutdown a PC etc.......

    Comments and suggestions please......

    Did you haggle? NetSupport is very good, and is worth your persevering to drive a good price.

    Thanks to all who have replied, I will have a look at those.

    Hightower - I guess that using a search facility would have given me a list of software packages but asking for advice, on a forum, from experts in the field who have used the software is my preference.

    The only advice you have asked for is this:

    I'd advise haggling with Netsupport. It's a good product, and I know they're always willing to do a deal
