Have you ever wanted to take live screenshots of a group of PCs to see what is going on? I’ve created a PHP script that teams up with a few remote control applications that does it for you!

Features include:

  • Instant screenshots of remote PCs
  • Refresh any PC’s image with 1 click
  • Shows currently logged on username
  • Searches Active Directory for user’s information and displays full name and other custom fields
  • Fully configurable and customizable
