The Menu button

The Menu button provides a number of options that help you to use the product more effectively.

  • Zoom Remote Screen -- Shows the remote screen full-size. This is a view-only mode.Remote Control -- This also shows the remote client at full-size, but is also interactive. Save screenshot -- If you see something particularly interesting on the remote client, use this option to save a copy of the screen. Tools -- I'll talk about this soon.Connect/Disconnect -- If you're connected to a client, disconnect and vice versa. Properties -- Open the Properties page for the client. This is the same window that you see when you choose to add a new computer. Add Computer Group -- If you have a number of monitored computers, it's easier to find a particular system when the entire list is organized. Therefore, you can add a group into which you can place individual monitored clients. Add Computer -- Add another computer to the list of monitored systems. Add Group of LAN Computers -- Add monitored clients en masse. I'll show this to you in a bit. Remove -- Remove the computer from the management console. Note that this does not uninstall the remote computer's client. Remote Agent Installation/Configuration -- Remotely configure this computer's client. You are prompted for a user name and password when you choose this option.

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
