nam_siddharth
Hello friends. I am running a cyber cafe. Currently all users login in different computer. But in this case, I got many difficulty in managing users activity. I want all users to login in a single computer by different terminals. Operating system may be Windows XP or Windows 2003.
I tried Remote Desktop utility of Windows XP. But when I login in a PC via "Remote Desktop", previous user is out. Crying or Very sad I need yur suggestions.

I work high school as a computer specialist. Our labs we are using SynchronEyes program which is very good. You can download and use it 30 day trial from http://www.smarttech.com

If you just want to watch users' screens remotely, the freeware VNC will work.

You would install the server on each of the users' computers and install the viewer on the one you use to watch with.

You can control the user machines as well as observe them.

Another freeware utility, VNC Neigjborhood (http://www.sysworksoft.net/products/vncnbhood.html), installed on the computer you use to watch with, will scan for the users' machines and create a drop down list so you can choose one to look at.

VNC will work from a location off site, as well, but you would have to know a little about firewalls and portforwarding.

For on site, the set up is quick and easy.

you can try using linux redhat. During startup, you can choose the OS you have installed and wanted to use.

check out their website before choosing.

You may try running a powerfull linux server that is running virtual machines with winXP in them.
Linux allows the kind of logins you want (that's the reason for the whole mount/unmount thing)
User logs into the linux server, server asigns them a virtual machine to use.

I guess you want one computer so you just need to patch that one and install software on that one etc. If you prefer Windows (wich I read in your post) I would suggest a Windows terminalserver. You said you wanted winXP or win2003, I thought there is a terminalserver edition from win2003. On that terminalserver you can create an account for every terminal/user so every user thinks he has his own pc and you can access them with the remote desktop program you mentioned. But be sure to use different users for your different computers, else the fisrt user will logoff when the second user logs on.

This login from terminal method used to be very popular (back when computers filled rooms).
You may get success by researching into these very old systems.

I have one idea for your problem. Leave Micro$oft system for the server and try Linux (one of the distribuition, is equal Very Happy). Install on the server and try to install the NX product (www.nomachine.com).
It is a very fast and reliable service! You may install Windows XP on your client machine and installk the client of NX on its.
This is the presentation of the product:

NoMachine NX is a Terminal Server and Remote Access solution based on a comprising set of enterprise class open source technologies. Thanks to the outstanding compression, session resilience and resource management developed on top of the X-Window system, and the integration with the powerful audio, printing and resource sharing capabilities of the Unix world, NoMachine NX makes it possible to run any graphical application on any operating system across any network connection as if you were sitting in front of your computer.

The client:
The NoMachine's wide range of free NX clients is a lightweight mean to carry with you all the power of your office workstation.
NX speed is really astonishing! If you think that your remote access solution is fast, give NX a try and you'll look at network computing from a different perspective.

The server:
NX Server Enterprise Edition is licensed to you per-host, per-cpu, without limitations on the number of user sessions that can be run on a single server

The cost of the license is:
NX Server Personal Edition
1 user - € 54.50 $ 65.15

NX Server Small Business Edition
5 users - € 144,50 $ 172.13

NX Server Enterprise Edition
Unlimited 1-2 CPU € 494.50 $ 591.71

NX Server Enterprise Edition
Unlimited 4 CPU € 794.50 $ 949.67

NX Server Enterprise Edition
Unlimited 8 CPU € 1294.50 $ 1547.32

NX Server Enterprise Edition
Unlimited 16 CPU € 1994.50 $ 2384.21

If you are sadomasochist there are the free solution. By the source code you try to install the server. The source code is free.
Personally i have to try the free solution and its works very well.

I just want to clarify something here... Are you referring to Thin-client? Or am I missing something here? The first thing that came up to my mind upon reading the title of your post is that you are talking only about one Windows machine. I guess I was wrong. Anyway, am I getting the idea or not? Or are you not referring to Thin-client technology and just want to monitor user activities by having a centralized "User Monitor" in which you could view the list of currently logged users?

I hope I got the idea right. Smile

I know about thin clients. But I want to know, whether it is possible without thin clients or not. I want to do the same thing, what a thin client do. I want to use resourses of Main computer by login in it through different terminals.

I think winxp's built in term svcs will work for you. You should be able to connect multiple sessions to ONE computer using term svcs. Here is an excerpt of capabilities from http://www.windowsecurity.com/articles/Windows_Terminal_Services.html

You can configure the properties of the terminal server’s RDP-TCP connection to provide better protection. For example:

* Restrict the number of client sessions that can remain active on the server (making it easier to keep track of who is connected)
* Set session time limits (helping to ensure that sessions are not left unattended and active for long periods)
* Restrict reconnections of a disconnected session to the client computer from which the user originally connected, if the Citrix ICA client software is used
* Configure encryption levels
* Set permissions for users and groups on the terminal server


Is this what you are after? I would not go with a 3rd party app if this would work for you.[/url]
