Remote Admin?

Hey guys...

I am looking for a piece of software, where I can remotely control a Clamshell iBook. It will be running OS 9.2, but i want to control it from a Gigabit running 10.2 (10.3 in the future). I assume I would have to run it in classic mode which is fine by me. I would be really neat if i could keep it as a shared drive on my system as well.

I noticed apple has a piece of optional software which I installed called Network Assistant Client? Sounding like the right avene to persue... Anyother suggestions. I know for a PC there is Remote Admin from Famtech.

that should do the trick ... Wink

but if you want a freeware solution download a VNC server for the iBook and a VNC client for the G4 ... there should be classic and OS X versions available ...

OS X client
OS 9 server

of course there are other clients and servers about ...

Commercial products

Or if you want to go the commercial route, you'll either want Timbuktu or Apple Remote Desktop. But both of those are pretty expensive.

remote desktop is cool. Use

remote desktop is cool. Use it at work all the time. If you have a admin user in a lab environment you can push updates to all the machines at once, then reboot them all at once, sounds sooo cool having all the gongs in sync.
