Program to Monitor Multiple VNC Sessions on Thin Clients

Does anybody know of a program that will allow multiple VNC sessions to be monitored at once? This is for a school environment, as we would like to monitor about 30 lab PCs. These are Wyse thin clients that have a small VNC server running on them, so it has to be VNC. (I cannot use another classroom management application.)

I've found this program, but it only allows 25 screens to be seen at once, and it takes up the entire screen. It is also somewhat buggy, so I'm looking for something better, preferably free. If you know of a good paid program (that you can actually speak for from prior use) that would be great, too. http://vncon.chronetal.co.uk/

Thanks!

I just gave that program a try. The only problem that I have with it is that it causes the mice on client PCs to jump around teh screen erratically. Its system for saving/loading class lists is also a little clunky, but that I could deal with.

Thanks for your fast response! Any other ideas?

That's a shame. It looked like quite a neat bit of kit too!

How about this one? http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows/tabbed-remote-desktop-vnc-client-for-windows/

I know about http://www.s-code.com/products/vncmanager/ but it's commercial software with many options for managing network.
Have thumbnail view, and can capture screens in specified times.

I sincerely apologize for taking so long to get back to you both. I have tried both programs, and neither is still quite what I'm looking for. Tigermatt's tabbed remote desktop VNC client works somewhat, but it's in tabs, not thumbnails. I was also not able to get the SmartCode VNCManager to work with thumbnail view, and it's commercial.

If either of you know of more solutions, I'd appreciate it. Thank you very much for your help and contributions.
