ThinPATH Desktop Mirror Documentation

  • Supports TCP/IP and WAN networks
  • Multi-level security process protects desktops from unauthorized access

Mirror desktop activity from PCs and Windows-based Terminals to your desktop
Deploying personnel to support and configure individual desktop devices throughout an enterprise is costly and inefficient. I.T. departments need a solution that enables remote, centralized desktop support for Terminal Server Edition installations. NCD ThinPATH Desktop Mirror allows viewing and manipulation of individual desktops through mouse and keyboard input by one or several remote users.

This NCD solution is unique to the market in that the complete desktop can be shared regardless of the type of information being presented. For example, the remote viewer can see ICA and RDP sessions, as well as, the low-level hardware set-up screens on the ThinSTAR Windows-based Terminal. This makes NCD ThinPATH Desktop Mirror the perfect support solution for help-desk, classroom and kiosk environments.

Other shadowing solutions are limited to the display of only remote Windows sessions, not the entire desktop environment.

More network connectivity with minimum network traffic
NCD ThinPATH Desktop Mirror supports Windows 2000, NT Server 4.0, NT Workstation 4.0, and Windows 98/95 PC desktops and ThinSTAR Windows-based Terminals.

While providing robust, remote support for networked desktops for applications such as technical support, training, and remote administration, ThinPATH Desktop Mirror also minimizes incremental network traffic by controlling the transfer of data packets. This ensures that the traffic generated by the mirroring process has minimal impact on the productivity of other networked end users. Controlling the number of screen updates sent from the desktop to the viewer program reduces data traffic, and NCD ThinPATH Desktop Mirror also compresses the data it sends over the network.
