I am a computer tech for a campus library, and my boss has just given me the challenge of creating a web page on our personal server that will hold links to every computer in the building. By clicking the link you can remotely connect to that specific PC, through either IP address or computer name, so we do not need to wander the entire building to make changes to our computers. I'm on little lost on how to create such a project, therefore any suggestions would be greatly appreciated (such as programming language- hoping java script could do it)
Microsoft uses Remote Desktop (mstsc if you want to type it into the Run command)...as far as launching this in a webapp, good luck. There really isn't a clever way, the HTTP protocol wants to download the file to you (I tried a small example where I even hard linked the file's location in my C: drive). You may want to invest in products like SysAid which is geared towards what you guys want to do.
