Re: [K12OSN] Setting up VNC remote support

Open Office, Firefox, Java, Opera 9.27 (for a crappy legacy webside that only works in IE and that version of Opera), rdesktop (with printer redirection)...and I think that's about it.  We have a couple of computers in both of our inpatient units that are set up for family members to use.  I'll likely set up a whole range of games for the kids.

I'm busy setting up K12LTSP to test fl_teachertool.  It looks exactly like what we are looking for.  I'm also very intrigued with iTALC (http://en.opensuse.org/Italc).  I'm setting up another test station with opensuse to play around with it since that package appears to be in their repository and fairly easy to set up.  If I like it I'm going to try and set that up on K12Linux. 

I have about another month before I'm testing this out in production in a couple of our agencies.  Maybe Robert will have a beta version of fl_teachertool ready to go by then and I can help give him some feedback. 

Thanks again for the great feedback.  I was at a dead end and you folks helped point me in the right direction.

What apps will you be using?

If you are using primarily office types of apps, K12LTSP is rock solid.
K12Linux better integrates Firefox/Flash, imho, and can take advantage
of more powerful clients.

If you really need desktop support and monitoring, fl_teachertool is
absolutely mind-blowing. It does way more than simply grabbing a screen

btw, put a freenx server on your LTSP servers if you haven't already.
It's brilliant to come in from a remote location with FreeNX, running
fl_teachertool and getting a user up and running before they've even
finished their call to you.
