Does anybody know of a company that sells software to view, from your BB or mobile phone, what programs your kids are running on their PC at home? Would you buy an application like this?

I recommend Remote Desktop for Mobiles which currently runs $35.00. I use it to monitor both my computer at home and my laptop at work. It works amazingly well considering you are viewing a live computer preview via a Blackberry device. You obviously need an unlimited data plan if you plan on using this type of software as it sends/receives constantly to update the screen. Once you are connected to the machine, you can view the entire screen, zoom in on a portion of the screen (choices are 3x, 2x and 1x), send keyboard commands, mouse commands, type on the screen, etc.

I have attached some screen shots of what it looks like on my Blackberry when posting this response. The first screen is full desktop view, second screen is 3x zoom, third screen is 2x zoom and fourth screen is 1x zoom.

If you need any additional information, feel free to ask.

donthateme13-

Were you able to connect to your desktop or was it the test server provided? If you were able to connect to your desktop, try restarting the "Remote Desktop for Mobiles" service. Also, if using a firewall, you have to open ports, forward them, etc. which is explained at their site. When I was testing it out, I had no problems connecting to the test server which means the problems I was encountering connecting to my desktop were incorrect settings which I eventually resolved and it has worked flawlessly since. Again, the key for me was all the correct firewall settings.

Most people that we have talked to have not had any issues configuring the software. Usually the most common issues are to do with network connectivity (MDS or TCP settings) on the BlackBerry.

Like I mentionned earlier, if you have problems installing please please contact us and let us help you, it's important for us to understand what pains people go through so that we can either improve our product or the documentation, people who contact us are very satisfied with the level of support we provide, we consider making customers happy our #1 priority.

Please feel free to email us anytime at [email address] or call us toll free at 1-888-IT-ADMIN x207 (M-F 8am-6pm EST).
