    Hi,

    Simple question really, just wondering if it is possible to allow the user to watch what your doing on their PC when you've connected via a remote session.

    i.e. I'm on PC A and I'm controlling PC B, but I want my colleague on PC B to be able to see what I'm actually doing (rather than just viewing the login screen / logging in and interupting my session).

    If not, is there any FREE (and safe) software that does this.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Regards,

    Nnahrino

    Thanks - Would that be through remote assistance?

    What if no Internet connection is currently available?

    Well, if you're on the local network, that's fine. Obviously, if there's no connection between the machines, it's going to hard to see what's going on! :D

    I use UltraVNC for tasks like this. If you get a request from someone that's not computer literate, you can use Zolved, no installation required, and you can simply email the small EXE file required on the remote end.

    Just did the Windows Remote Assistance (through sending a file over the network - not MSN), which seemed to work.

    Will investigate UltrVNC also.

    Thanks for your help.

    Nags, UltraVNC is the same as TightVNC with some additional capabilities. ;)
