    Looking for powerful remote administration software ...

    Hey, I wonder if someone could recommend some software that would be good for administering remote machines.


    I would like to be able to do the following ...
    • Add/remove user accounts
    • Reset passwords
    • Monitor the user (preferably without alerting them)
    • Edit the registry
    • View, Stop, Restart and disable services.
    • Get information such as time of boot for example.
    I can do all of the following already using SSH, MMC and remote registry but I would like a GUI and to have them all in one piece of software.

    I have used LogMeIn IT Reach which was good but I would like alternatives.

    Any suggestions appreciated

    Hey stoneys-nutz, thanks for the suggestion. I have been testing this product out however I don't really like it that much. Its okay for remote control etc but administration is not really a powerful feature.

    Thanks for suggesting it!

    Yeah, to be perfectly honest I'm not really 100% on what I want. I'm looking for alternatives to what I already use.

    I will be accessing the remote machines via a secure VPN. And I want to do it to manage remote machines? What else what I use remote admin software for?
