Project Summary

IntroductionAs a school's lab admin, I've found only a few apps that could fulfill my needs of launching multiple commands in multiple machines at the same time across a network. Even worst, almost all of the usable projects were commercial iniciatives. As of this, I've decided to write my own app that can be used not only inside a network, but is able to control it from everywhere.

One of the most uses for this application is to setup VNC for more than 20 computers in one click and broadcast a single desktop for the entire network. This is particulary useful to broadcast PowerPoint presentations directly to the kids computers while a teacher explains and controls what they see.

LabManager is written in C# and uses the SSH protocol to comunicate with a network server and then a mix of opensource applications to send commands or launch visual connections to the workstations. And all of this through an easy, comprehensible, and beautiful UI interface.

DetailsLabManager was first created as a Java software, but was later shifted to a .Net C# Application with no regrets whatsover. By using C#, LabManager automatically gained a much better and richer UI with desktop and OS integration no Swing app could provide.

And by using existing SSH and RSH applications, I've found it was much easier to build a secure environment to send and receive commands over the net, without having to write my own (and possible bugged) network code, but utilizing well known open-source software widely known for it secureness.

LabManager requires that a few things are set:

A server box with sshd running and nbtstat installed; Valid user credentials for restrictly accessing the server trough SSH; Workstations capable of understanding the rsh protocol.

Currently this software is tested on machines running Rshd (from Zacglen Software) over Windows 98 OS, but every rshd daemon should work. Tested daemons will be listed on Wiki at a later time.

Help or any notification of interest would be highly appreciatted.
