Try VNC, the client sees everything the host does. Just make sure you
disable his mouse and keyboard in the connection first though ;)

> There is a student taking a computer programming class that has a vison
disability. He has a school provided Win2K Pro laptop that has been locked
down very tightly... This laptop was provided to him to make learning
easier for him. However, there is one problem... In order for him to
funtion effectively in class he will need to be able to see a remote display
of what his teacher is doing on her PC (which is hooked up to an LCD
projector) on the screen of his PC. Is there a secure way of accomplishing
this feat without using any of a number of trojan horse programs?
