We have concrete trucks that we hook laptops up to for monitoring proposes.  They have asked me to provide a way to allow the customers to remotely view these computers.  Ideally the customer would log into a website or software client (should require password) and see a list of all of our concrete trucks.   They could then click on the truck they wanted to view and be able to view the laptop hooked up to that truck in real time.  We do not what them to be able to remote control the computer, just view.  Any ideas would be appreciated.

You can either use teamviewer or log me in. Personally i prefer teamviewer as it has many nice options

I afraid nether will work for my purposes.  They don't allow multiple people to view the trucks at the same time.  In order for Team Viewer to allow multiple people to view you have to create a meeting.  Were wanting have a list of availible trucks and have multiple people be able to view the same truck at the same time.

I found that team viewer will work, but they want $800.00 a truck for the licensing.  It works great but is not price effient. They tell me for each person that logs in it will use up a channel.  They recomended buying a license for each truck.  Thanks for the input
