    LanView only works on Windows, true. But it doesn't have to be a Windows Server. It can be Win2000, XP or 2003.

    It's not open source and not released under the GPL. It's freeware.

    Out of interest what is you main reason for finding an alternative to NetSupport School? Is it primarily cost or have you experienced some problems with the software?

    I'm not trying to sell you NSS just curious

    Rob
    NetSupport Ltd
    we bought originally 100 licences at £21.00 each + maintainance

    6 months ago we bought 14 more licences + maintainance.

    We are now told that the maintaince is running out at the end of march.
    Original quote for renewal was just under £500. I wasn't aware about how much it was likly to cost every year. Certainly didn'nt know that we only bought 6months worth of support the last time.

    I have only called them a few times, one time they never called me back like they said they would.

    Ok they have agreed to do the maintainance for £350, its still alot of money to pay every year.

    I've had a look at the one mentioned in a previous post here called abtutor and it looks just as good as netsupport and is cheap.

    Lanview sounds good on paper, but at least for us, did not work that great. It slowed the workstations down and constantly needed reinstallation.

    We have since purchased a program called Netcontrol2. It seems to run better.
