I am investigating getting this idea of mine underway... having a VW drawing on-screen, ringing a client... getting them to go to a site... selecting my screen... and viewing real time as i guide them through my work... and talk to them 1-1 on the phone.

Anyone currently do anything like this ? I think I have everything I need to get the job done... just want to know if I am ahead or behind some of you.

This will save time, flights, and alot of hassle !

You can choose one of the (free) VNC servers here:


Your client would install a VNC client on his computer. If it is a Macintosh, it could be:


For Windows, your client could use:


Good luck!
