I’ve been the recipient of a couple of tools from vendors in the job I work at. Unfortunately a don’t know much about them but that they worked flawlessly.

  • Web Meeting from AT&T. The is more for presentations than connecting to another computer. I think you can only SHOW your computer to someone else. Springer-Miller Systems is the client that uses this software.
  • WebEx This seems to be about $300/mo. I remember Newmarket International connecting to and controlling a PC I was having trouble with.

Sorry that I don’t have much more info. The AT&T site is especially unhelpful. If you’re serious about it, you might want to call Springer-Miller or Newmarket (Google them for contact info).

Great, I’ll have a good look at both of them. Thank you J.J.

Do a google search for “vnc”. This brings up alot of programs, some free, some open source, some with a pricetag.

I never used one of those programs, so I can’t share hands-on experience or info on how some of the programs operate.

(You could get your hands on a trojan that installs an vnc for optimal ease-of-use, but the client might not like it. ;) )

I have already looked at many of the VNC packages Stefan. Unfortunately they all seem to have one major drawback - software has to be installed on both the server and the client computers.

The really great thing about NetViewer is that the client/trainee/etc doesn’t have to install any software. He simply downloads a small application (280KB) and runs it. This is a major win because many of the people I intend to use this with will balk if they half to install anything (and subsequently configure firewalls and so on).
