    I recently installed LogMeIn Free and I'm impressed! Great for working from home.

    ABTutor does this and can allow teachers control of classroom computers too. Logmein isnt really ideal for a school setting. Look in the Network and Classroom Management forum for many different options.

    Logmein is good to go from home to your office PC but not for in and around the school because you want to stay in you network and not go out to the internet and back in again.

    Yeah I've used AB Tutor before. Also used Range Remote Control and NetOp School.

    AB Tutor is good because you only need to buy the Tutor license and have to worry about buying a license for the student machines.

    I support the suggestions for RealVNC. It's simple, easy to setup and very discrete. However like you said, you have to install it on each machine.

    An alternative that I've used is Teamviewer. I suspect it would be better for accessing more remote sites in the same way as logmein does though.

    the reasin i ask is, because we're having a new pa system installed, and i want to giv teachers the options of ringing my office to say my whiteboard has died and i need you now. rather me having to trek half my life across the school, is there a program that let me log in to her pc and help her out???
    LANview. Free, simple, effective.

    No longer developed, but we use it extensively here and it does exactly what we need.

    Can you post a link to the free LANView, the only site I found was a 21 day trial and a few hundred dollars for a site license.

    Not sure it's available for general download anywhere, as MST Software stopped developing it.

    I'll FTP it to my home server, if you PM me an email address, I could put it up on the web for you to download, I'll just need to let you know where to get it from and when.
