Haven't looked for any.

I use Terminal Servers with proper session control and monitoring.
Features not available on the desktop version of Windows, I believe.

Good Luck.

Use Teamviewer. Once setup you can connect without password.

how could that be possible or even desirable (ok, the login can be automated, but it still must occur).
remote desktop software exists, i'm sure it is possible to connect to a windows desktop from a linux machine. if that's what you're asking.

It is free for personal use. I use it daily without paying anything. Time limit is only for active sessions. You can instantly reopen the session if you run out of time, but if you only connect to check on the desktop you will never hit the limit.

I don't think you understand what you mean.
Merely repeating the same unintelligible request with no facts or actionable information about your desired solution.

Well then, define "monitor" exactly?
What does "monitoring Windows clients" mean?
Define "client". Define "server."

Clients where? Off network (Internet) or in house?
Watch every move and keystroke? For what? Monitor Logs? Monitor Disk Space? Spy on Users?
What on Earth do you "want" to do? What are you after?

Wore me out at 6:34 AM.
