hi all, this will sound a bit odd and its the reverse of what most people want. my kids have a laptop on a wireless link to our main pc and i was wondering if there is a way i can keep an eye on the pages there looking at on my pc, and yes we do have child guard etc but still a few things get through. help please
When my kids were smaller they each had networked PC's. I used to keep an eye on them with a small program that allowed me to call up their screen onto my PC. I could then watch, unbeknown to them, what they were doing. If they were doing anything untoward I was able to close down their machine and/or cut it off from the net. I also came in handy for diagnostics and fixing of remote PC's. I assume this is your requirement. The prog was called Remote administrator from click here. There are any number of similar programmes around
we have 2 teenage boys and we all share a single pc in a fairly public place. They know what they are allowed to do, but some of the time they ignore that. Fell out over their music downloading habits for a while, but now they only d/l free or paid for stuff. Occasionally have a look at their temp internet files to check that the porn browsing is a thing of the past (that was a bit of an eye-opener!)
Children these days tend to know more about computers than their parents, if they want to visit sites that you would rather they didn't they will, and I suspect that failing standing and looking over their shoulder they will find a way of getting round any obstacle you put there. I can remember reading Lady Chatterley's Lover as a schoolboy! Tell them to be sensible and respect your wishes. I don't mean to be impertinent but we all have to grow up and learn from experience
thanks for all your help, its not that I don't trust the kids, its the internet I don't trust with all the popups on the kids games etc and the so called ..you have won.. banners witch is like waving a chocy bar under there noses. the remote admin seems the way to go but with all the threats of people looking at your pc I just thought it was a bit easier than loading in more programs. ok thanks again for all your help
