At work, we have two machines that are constantly being used by 7 people who each also have their own workstation. We will remotely connect to one of the two machines to use Bloomberg. I am looking to create an application that runs on each persons workstation as a client program and a server type program to run on the two machines that are shared.
The purpose of the program is to notify which machine has someone connected to it, and who is connected. Also it will display if it is available(no one is connected).
My question here is, how with java can I detect if someone is remotely logged into a machine, and pull their username?
Also, does anyone know a way to display a notification window on a remote machine. basically I am going to have a request button in the client program where you can notify the current person logged in that you request the machine.
We remote in via windows Remote Desktop Connection, which is using Citrix.
