Remote Administration Software - Final Year Uni Project Help Advice

My final year project idea is as follows.

Remote Administration Software

The idea is to create a software suite that would enable users to remotely administer computers, perhaps restricted to a Windows environment, or depending on the implementation a multi-os environment, and perform tasks as if the user where physically at the computer. Probably a client/server model?

I would like it to have the functionality to display multiple screens by group. So for example a college could use it and pull up a room and view all the screens and perform tasks on that group, such as turning off monitors, displaying messages etc

This could be expanded to provide general pc to pc remote communication (as in software such as Team Viewer http://www.teamviewer.com/index.aspx and Crossloop http://www.crossloop.com/) and also allow a home user to set up a interface to his/her computer perhaps through the web so their pc is available where ever they are. Also allow automated tasks to be completed such as shutdowns, run the batch file etc. Group computers etc.

Also allow dameware like monitoring etc. Perhaps statistics on users could be collected, web browsing etc.

Any help appreciated. Do I go with VNC or restrict it to Windows Remote Desktop protocol etc. What programming language would be best? How would I go about it.

Thanks for you help

Such application like you describe already exist, you can look at the product features from its brochure to get more ideas...
the application above you its own component to capture the screen and control the remote computer.
Because you mention that multi-os environment is important to you i would advise you to go with VNC, since RDP is restricted to Windows environment only.
You will need to add other services that works in the background beside the VNC server if you want to log users activities, display messages or restart computers

What kind of services would be needed?

So i can use VNC to capture the screen and mouse and keyboard strokes etc

To capture activity what services would I have to use/install.

i guess you need to write your a service that monitor the TASK MANAGER and connect the current active task and the ones that runs in the background...
