VNC alternatives that notify users

Hi
We want to integrate something like VNC remote assistance
But Ideally, it would notify the users that someone is watching their screen as people are getting a bit freaked out by the idea

Is there an option in VNC or other free software that notifies users they are being remotely watched/controlled?

Take a look at Splashtop.

It is free for non commercial use and very reasonable for commercial use.

It does what you are asking for plus much more ...

So no option in VNC to notify users they are being remote controlled?

Which VNC are you using? RealVNC will do so by default on the right side (bottom right for Windows, top right for Mac). I forget how notifications from others like TightVNC go these days.

Sadly that really depends on the VNC branch used. As said, RealVNC notifies by default, with other VNCs you might have to enable the confirmation option with a default of "Accept" (if available - UltraVNC and TightVNC do both), or similar stuff.
