Benefits of VNC and DameWare®
As a cross-platform solution, VNC software is very robust and functional. With the number of problems that other programs face, having interchangeability is definitely an advantage. Most of the corporate world uses Windows, though some may prefer Mac®, while many IT setups prefer to use either Linux® or UNIX®. This diversity of operating systems normally creates incompatibility, but DameWare Remote Support allows you to connect to Linux, Mac OS® X, or Windows computers from just one console.
DameWare developers realized the value of VNC software and incorporated full VNC support into the DameWare Remote Support console. Within the DameWare software console, users can also choose to connect to remote computers with remote desktop protocol (RDP), the native remote connection tool in all Windows operating systems since Windows XP. DameWare developers have also created their own proprietary connection tool called Mini Remote Control Viewer to make connections to Windows computers.
Regardless of which connection type you choose from the console, you will have access to functions like in-session chat, file-transfer, and one-click screenshots. DameWare Remote support makes managing a mixed-OS environment much easier for help-desk professionals and system administrators.
In addition to these powerful remote control features, DameWare Remote Support includes tools that allow system administrators to perform Windows administration tasks remotely from the same console. From the console, sys admins can view the event logs of computers without having to take full control of them. Similarly, sys admins can restart services, view processes, manage disks and printers, and view the software installed on Windows computers remotely.
