That for those reasons. Why anyone would add 3rd party software overhead is beyond me (the only reason I might use something else is for doing this between two machines that aren't in the same domain).

Surely asking for permission is a huge hassle? What if you want to grab a few computers to test something on?
Maybe we need to look at our windows 7 ultraVNC installs as other don't seem to have a problem!
Glennda - sorry for confusion

Moi? RA is RDP with bells & whistles.. you just RDP to a few computers with your RDP-enabled test account and test something.

Can you rdp into an a users session then? Without permission? This is how we do it on our terminal server with ts manager. Can you do this with win7 too?

Don't know - accessing someone's logon session anywhere without them knowing is on the other side on one of *my* personal lines, staff or student it offends my sense of ethics.

Absolutely... Let me read up on including GPL licensing since it'll have a copy of TightVNC rolled up with it. Once I've done that I'll attach it to this thread.

On a whole, I think we are taking about support here not snooping, I doesn't matter if a user knows that we have remoted in or not there will always be a valid reason.

We have ours to remove desktop background when connected and also shows the VNC icon in the bottom corner to indicate a connection has been made. For some reason the background doesn't reappear again so a member of staff knows we have connected on.

Have you got a brief guide / walk through on how you setup VNC whether it be through GPO or an ini file or whatever to only allow domain admins to connect and prompt the staff to allow a connection before it actually initiating the connection etc ?

Only way to remote back on is to make sure said user is not logged on ie computer is at the logon screen in which case it allows you to remote straight on but you can't just remotely log a user off as they may have work they need saving etc.

If you reset their password and they are allowed RDP you can take over their session

If Only, I could try this but they are all on windows 7 and I think by default at work GPO has been set to disable RDP so may be a problem and still would be if I did this as I would get an ear bashing from both the end user and management above me

I created an MSI package following this guide here: How to Deploy VNC using Group Policy | Wayne Zimmerman's Blog

Use Skeep VNC console it's really simple & free, integrates with AD and really easy to setup the VNC on the clients and deploy.

If you're going to use RA...then I would strongly advise you get the latest Microsoft Critical patches rolled out to every device. Microsoft warns of RDP attack within next 30 days ? The Register

RA uses a different protocol to RDP over different ports so is probably not affected, besides those patches were out ages ago so most 'should' already have them installed. It also relies on someone inside your network running this exploit with their credentials to crash the target and that is probably unlikely and traceable.
