Is there a way to use Remote desktop or RWW and let user see what you are doing / access their desktop?

I like 3rd party apps for remote access to a desktop rather than remote desktop because users can see what you are doing, you can leave a note on the desktop for the user if they aren't there,etc.

is there a way to do this with remote desktop  or RWW? (same thing, right?)

Have you used Remote Assistance?

Also, in a terminal server, you can share a session by having both users log into a session and having one use Terminal Services Manager to connect to the other.

Hello babaganoosh,

With RDP - No you cant "Shadow" - you need a product like VNC or Dameware which means you need to install something on the client - Well not for dameware you just point it at the Target PC's name/ip address and give it a usernam and password.

For helping users I prefer UtraVNC SC as you can remote anything even behind a firewall - as long as the target has TCP port 80 and TCP5900 outbound see my website for details on how cool it is

Thanks guys.  I am familiar with SC.  I was hoping you could do this natively.  Wow Pete - I have to check out your website.

Kinda another question, but, on your home page you talk about  the benefits of authenticated e-mail and the SPF record.  it's actually mandatory, not just a benefit anymore when emailing people on aol and hotmail and maybe others, right?

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

You can certainly shadow a session using Remote Assistance - however, you will be shadowing the console session so things will need to be run elevated using Run As.

As long as RDP and Remote Assistance is turned on and you are a member of the Administrator (local group) or Remote Desktop Users group then you can shadow the session easily.

If this is an XP management station then create a shortcut on your desktop with the following as a target:

"hcp://CN=Microsoft%20Corporation,L=Redmond,S=Washington,C=US/Remote%20Assistance/Escalation/Unsolicited/Unsolicitedrcui.htm"

It pretty straightforward from there.
