application for sharing screen among windows and linux stations?

maybe Im not too clear in the topic as to what I mean but its as this...

there is one 'central' computer which will be used in a computer lab with windows 7 installed and 18 workstations with linux mandriva 2010 installed connected by wi-fi net

Id like to be able to see on the central comp what the people are doing on their workstations plus Id like to be able to send files/screens etc from the windows comp to the other comps so that they are able to see the content

could anybody suggest any software/application which would do the job in this situation? plus some tips as to how to configure it to work properly?

any help will be greatly appreciated

by screens do you mean screenshots?

If you want to be able to connect and view their session, you could install vnc (apt-get install realvnc?)

from windows you can use winscp to tranfer files between windows and linux machines

yes I did mean screenshots

basically I want to be able to see what the people are looking at on their machines and vice versa

from the description of realvnc it seems it should do the job -- dU think its enough?

I would suggest something like

iTALC - Intelligent Teaching And Learning with Computers

It allows an interesting control of the remote workstations.

Best regards,

I ran into some problems when installin italc:

- it is not present in the official repositories of mandriva 2010 or I cant find it
- when tryin to install from source I have several issues with qt4 -- now the ./configure command asks me for qt4 libraries though I thought I installed all that was necessary

could anybody help?

maybe there is another application of this kind? -- it seems realvnc is not free

I had the same problem using Ubuntu

I did manage to find through tutorials on the web how to download the tar files and then package them.

then untar them and I used the guide to install it on both the master and clients computers.

It is a great program, you cannot transfer files though like you mentioned that you wanted to do above - I also would like that feature.

I am new to Linux as well, so I only know the directions to get it to work with Ubuntu
