I have an in house developed inventory tracking system that keeps track of my machines (name, IP address etc) that is php/MYSQL driven.  I have RealVNC installed on all my clients machines.  Right now if a user has an issue they call and in my inventory tracking tool I can look up their computer name or IP and launch vnc viewer paste it in and away I go.  It was be awesome if I could somehow hyperlink the php page of their IP or computer name and click it and automatically launch the vnc viewer with that information in there.  I have tried the <a href="file:\\blah.exe"> but that will only save the exe (which wouldn't be a problem if I could pass the argument of IP or computer name to the exe)

I am not necessarily adverse to using IE7 for this if it won't work in FF.  Any ideas?
