RE: RE: [K12OSN] Client Management Software

Hi David,

I'll talk about VNC, because tight VNC is derived from it.

VNC has two progs, a server and a viewer. To look at a remote machine you 
launch the server (it seems odd but his is how ORL have done it).

To send your screen to another machine you launch the VIEWER. The other 
machine must have the server running in "listen" mode. On a Win9x /NT  box 
it can be run as a locked down service. The server can be configured to 
accept from a single IP address, or from a range of addresses.

I have configured my Win9x boxes to run the viewer as a locked down 
service, accepting only local network IP addresses, and users cannot shut 
down the service.

So theoretically you would be able to run VNC and display a teacher desktop 
to all classroom machines.

We have found a digital projector connected to the teacher's computer just 
as effective.
