RE: [K12OSN] Client Management Software



Bert-

Thanks for the response, but the problem with vnc is that it can't take over an X session that wasn't created by vncserver. Last night I found a little gem called x0rfbserver that allows someone to watch or take control of an X session no matter how it was created. I have yet to try it in a thin client environment, but it looks very promising.

I am still looking for a program that can show you client information if you have any idesas ;)

Happy Memorial Day,

Jesse

Hi Jesse,

K12LTSP release 2 has this utility included.

It's called VNC.

I use it for PC's and my Linux boxes.

Cheers,
Bert
