     Have you looked at Novel Zen? It has all the features that you are looking
    for and works great.

    The last place I worked we used Symantec's PC Anywhere. That worked well
    for us and it is easy to use. Just thought I would mention them since it
    seems no one else has. Just my two cents

    Hi,

    My client's help desk requests for support is growing, with more than 1,000
    users its understandable.

    We need to find a software (not an outsourced
    service) that will permit the technicians to take control of the user's
    desktop for support purposes. The user MUST agree to the technician taking
    control or even «peeking» at his desktop.

    We've looked at a few but my concern is with overall security.

    We used to have VNC installed on a few machines a couple of years ago but we
    removed it.

    Is the latest version of VNC sufficient (security wise)?

    Can you share your experience with us please?
    Suggestions or comments welcomed.

    Thanks!

    Marty
