I manage around 30 XP desktops at various locations. What is the common practice for managing desktops remotely?

I have used VNC in the past. What are the options (like Remote Assistance) or things I should look out for?

Thanking you. cee

    Accepted Solution

    VNC is great.  But if these are XP Pro systems, then I'd definitely use Remote Desktops.  Much better performance and reliability, and nothing to install, just a small configuration change in the System Control Panel.
