Hi all,

We are currently using Dameware in our company for remote administration. I have been tasked with seeking out an alternative product, paid for or free, the requirement is it being effective.

Anyone with any experience with other products? names of the product?  we need to admin a complete windows network so are looking for a tool with a fairly comprehensive tool set

Thanks
