    Re: vnc Vs rdc

    For what it's worth, I use RDP to connect to servers and then VNC onto workstations as required. There are a couple of VNC wrappers which make getting onto PCs easy. One is GenControl, the other is ChrisControl (a very clever compiled AutoIt script).

    ChrisControl gives you the option of using RDP or VNC, and will connect to an existing VNC server if it's installed. If not, it will push UltraVNC onto the PC temporarily.

    I'm connecting from within a broadband consortium grid so I'm not so worried about man-in-the-middle attacks. It works great. Now that 2003 servers are out there, it's even possible to connect to the console. I also use RoyalTS to manage my RDP connections. It's fabulous.

    The other tool I recomend is VNC Neighbourhood as a way of finding PCs running VNC server. You can even modify it to add extra remote management tools.
