Remote Control/VNC for Windows Server 2008
I have windows Server 2008 running active directory. I am looking for a way to easily remote control the client computers (primarily WinXP with a few Vista Business) associated with this server. I need to be able to take control of the machine without needing user permission. Any ideas?

At present VNC isn't compatible with Vista/2008
For now we have started using System Center Configuration Manager 2007 (newer version of SMS 2003)

How do you use SCCM to remote control?

It should deploy a client package onto all the clients
There is then an option for each computer found in SCCM for starting "remote tools"
(Right Click PC - start - remote tools)
SCCM is a good package, as was SMS, but can be a b**ch to get going..
It can also be used to deploy software, Windows, etc - big package

I turned on Remote Desktop and Remote Assistance with policy and added both of these options the computer object context menus in ADUC (or whatever it's called now).

Yeah, we already use it to deploy applications. I just wasn't aware it could do remote control.

The latest Ultra VNC client works fine with Vista, just make sure you let it download the Vista drivers during install.

We use dameware NT utilities (about £180 per admin console). Works flawlessly with vista/2008. Probably expensive for most but well worth the money and we are a big site.

I second that! I don't really use Utilities just mini control.
