Need a screenhunting program.

  1. Hey guys.

    At my school they have this thing where teachers can "check up" on you by taking screenshots of your screen over the network, but they can also "watch" you and mess with what you're doing. (I think it's called "screenhunting" but I'm not entirely sure.)

    Just out of curiosity ;) does anyone have any idea what program they may be using to do this?

    There are special suites for classrooms, but these are really just fancy versions of simple remote control software like VNC, Radmin, Remote Desktop, PCAnywhere etc etc.

    i wouldn't recommend messing (uninstalling :slurp:)with it either- you can get suspended (at least at my school) for doing that.

    To Nodsu,
    Thanks for the info. I still don't know what program it is specifically, but that helps a lot.

    To Papercut,
    I don't want to uninstall it or anything, I want to use it myself ;).

    You most certainly need to find out some passwords to use it. Also, if it is a special classroom program, then you would need to install the "teacher" version of the thing on your computer to be able to control other machines.
