Monitor computer usage with Network LookOut Administrator Professional

Add domain computers

Adding computers individually can quickly become a tedious process. Therefore, if you have a number of computers you want to add, use the "Add Group of LAN Computers" option located at the top of the main console window.

From the Add Group of Computers window, place a checkmark next to each computer that to which you would like to install the LookOut agent. If you want to add all computers in the domain, choose the Select All option. Provide a password for the agent. Every computer will use this password for client agent management. Also choose the color level, bearing in mind that fewer colors results in better overall performance.

Select the checkbox next to "Remotely install agent where possible" to avoid having to walk around to each client to perform a manual installation.

Click the Add Computers button when you're ready to proceed.

Other than the thumbnail feature that lets you monitor multiple computers at the same time, this looks like just another implementation of VNC.

When I tried to get this download, I got a page with the message 404 Not Found. I wonder why? Best regards, Eric

Some people might think this is a strange question. I did come across some programs that would allow me to do everything Network LookOut can do, as well as turning on computers. This is quite handy if I am to provide remote support to the machines and for some reasons the machines are off. laman

You can use the hardware MB/BIOS facility to wake a computer when LAN activity accesses it. I am not aware of any other way to power up a PC which has been switched off by a user
