    Details

    I got some feedback on the HTA file I submitted, and I discovered that calling RCConsole for those functions was 'unsupported' by Novell (Shaun Pond's comment here: http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/tip/16680.html).

    That said, I tackled writing the wrapper for the supported solution, that is calling desktop4.exe. The administrator needs only double-click the HTA file to run it, and because it's only a wrapper, the footprint is still super tiny - the file's 4KB in size. With the admin supplied IP address entered into the textbox, it's got support for:

    • File Transfer
    • Diagnostics
    • Remote Control
    • Remote View
    • Remote Execute

    The admin should edit the HTA to reflect his/her treename, and if desired change the authentication mode to password based instead of eDirectory based. Those details are included in the HTML text at the bottom of the file and can all be removed before circulating to his/her help desk.

    Good Luck!
