If you have 2000 server you can use terminal services. If you have XP you can use Desktop Connection. Which is just terminal services.

I use a program called NetSupport. I use it to control 300 computers in 5 counties. It's expensive, but worth it.

I have used VNC but find it too slow over dialup or even poor DSL/cable service.

I tried Radmin, which is a more mature product than VNC. The biggest advantages over VNC was the fact that it was about 10x faster over poor connections it also encrypts the datastream, negating the need for using SSH or the like to log in.

Anyone else want to chime in?

I too am looking for a cheaper remote GUI adminstration tool

Cheers!
