VNC Remote Control Installation
VNC is a remote control program that can allow one computer on a network gain access control of another computer. It is made available to users in order for a technology person in the system to assist a teacher or administrator having problems with a computer by remotely accessing that computer from his own without having to travel to the school location, so that problems may be solved more quickly. In order to gain access to your computer, several things must be done:
*VNC will work with all Windows operating systems.
1. VNC must be installed onto your computer.
2. VNCwill launch automatically when the computer is logged onto the network.
3. A password must be entered to prevent anonymous access to your computer by just anyone.
4. The IP address and password assigned to the machine must be given to the remote administrator.
Please follow the instructions below to install VNC onto your computer:

A white icon will appear near the clock time in the right hand lower system tray. If you place your mouse cursor over the icon the IP address assigned to that computer will appear. Write down the IP address as we will need it in order to access the computer when you have a problem. You can either call or e-mail your question along with the IP address of the computer.
