  1. Hi guys

    Need to know whether a peice of software is available that logs say ten machines on a network into the same user account at the same time. so it eliminates having to individually logging each one in. Any one help!?

    Hmm trouble is I didn't want anything to permanant. I visit schools and look after their networks and I'm constantly logging say a suite of 15 PC's into the same network login (my admin login). and I get fed up of doing each PC individually. I'm pretty sure theres a bit of software that you can put on a "host" pc and then run it with the login details so all the rest of the PC's or a select few will login to that account. It's probably a bit over the top actually

    this is commonly referred to as a 'Shared Account'.

    For Admin usage, there are several means to do remote administration, but I
    think you're trying to get all Client systems to share the same Server ID and data. In the corporate world this is a big no no! Loss of accountability,
    version control, as well as backup issues.

    With Windows XP, the Shared Documents folder works well. Can't you use the
    normal Shares?
