Network Tools Work

Using Real VNCViewer

This was a busy week at work.  Usually is when you come back from vacation.  Every month we generate a report which displays which PCs are out of our 95% compliance for all Microsoft patches.  Usually we are at or just over the company compliance of 95%, which is amazing considering we have three times as many PCs as other sites in the U.S.

In order to get the PCs up to date and complete my work at my desk, I am using Real VNCViewer to connect to the PCs who need a little manual love for one reason or another.  I am connect to 2 PCs on the production floor using Real VNCViewer and using No Machine for access to my Ubuntu Linux box (which I am using for this entry).  Plus Windows Vista (YIKES!!) is busy doing it’s own stuff such as connecting to the Ticket Monitor System, running Outlook 2007, checking e-mail at home, and a separate Citrix connection that I forgot to disconnect from.

If you have never took advantage of using VNC, No Machine, Terminal Server Client or Remote Desktop Connection, you should try it.  The only thing you need to be careful of is which PC you have displayed.  You don’t want to be deleting something from PC X when you thought you were in PC Y.

Now, if I can only figure out why this Vista image won’t load.
