I agree somehow with "corporate" emotion, although i'am not concerned about it:
I am a very tiny "professionnal", and thus the only client and server on both LANS, office and home, and i am not ashamed of "seeing myself".
But no one seemed to take the problem the other way around.
Let us imagine someone would like to connect to my home's PC, the one i am writing with, via Ramin:
No mattering the icon tray does or does not exist, my firewall would immediately either forbid the incoming connexion or ask for it.
I do not think any software editor should be held responsible of the fact that a lot of people are dumb enough to connect to the Web without an appropriate firewall.
Is is therefore an evidence that Radmin's Tray Icon doesn't have any reasonable utility:
that function belongs to the firewall, not to Radmin.
I'm using Viewer 3.0 and Server 2.1:
I can "tray-close" the viewer as i want, bu that doesn't matter because the viewing part is the "Administrator's Privilege".
I cannot close the Server on the remote side unless i know the command-line syntax for it or i have granted rights on that remote machine for "Ctrl-Alt-Del".
Viewer 3.0 seems to me a progress over 2.x, biut i don't see what is really better in Server 3.0 then in Server 2.X.
Just upgraded my xp pro to Vista and when I connect (to Vista) I see a little black window, about 1 inch by 1 inch, so apparently the mirror driver no longer works after upgrading. I was given a warning that Radmin would need to be upgraded as the current version was in the long list of incompatible items.
Special build of Radmin 3.0 that allows to hide the tray icon of Radmin server is released. This build is available to every registered user on request. Please send your requests for the special build to firstname.lastname@example.org
Well, thanks alot for hide tray icon feature!!!!!!!!
Almost immediately after the release of 3.0 the antivirus deleted all installs of radmin. Adding to the exceptions works until the next update. So now when I need to remotely support a pc, I first have to talk the user through re-installing radmin and adding it to the exceptions. Every time. how convenient.
I can't blame the antivirus, since the ability to hide the tray icon makes radmin a valid threat to network security. How can the AV find a modified spyware radmin instance with the icon hidden if radmin is excepted?????? Radmin is basically unusable in a corporate environment now. How is this supposed to survive a SOX audit??????? And you want $50 a seat for this????????
Thanks for caving to the four guys who demanded you add this feature. What good does it do to make us ask for it????? Anybody could get it.
You think maybe you could release instead a version of radmin 2.2 and radmin 3.0 that will not allow the tray icon to be hidden? and maybe make the executables and dll's different enough so the AV programs could tell them apart????
You know, a corporate grade remote control program that's actually worth the $50.
The other guys could continue to spy on their wives/girlfriends with the hacker/spyware version, while the rest of us manage networks(and manage our users).
i have a question.. please point out if i made any mistake.. i downloaded the radmin 3 server and viewer setups.. installed the server on my client pc and installed the viewer on my server pc.. i went to that site which daniel talked about....
downloaded the ,zip file...
stopped Radmin services on the client pc...
renamed the file.
copied the extracted file to the destination directory.
started the service again..
and rightly so.. no tray icon on the client pc... and r admin services are running..
now the problem which i am facing here is .. when i try to veiw the client screen from my server by running r viewer programe i enter username and password for the client pc... it connects and that little splashscreen appears which usually appears before the start of any session but it doesnt go further.... its like half hour now since i gave the password and still all i can see is the little splashscreen which usually comes before the start of a session..
HELP REQUIRED... IMMEDIATE BASIS ... ESPACIALLY FROM DANIEL
AND ONE MORE THING
when i reversed everything.. as in
stopped the r admin service..
deleted the file from r admin directory which i copied earlier..
renamed FamItrfc2.exe back to famItrfc.exe
started the service again
and tried to veiw the client pc from the server.. it worked as it usually does.. but i am stuck with the tray icon again.. its back in the tray..

It took my 10-year-old kid about 5 minutes to see the icon and disable Radmin. Please explain to me why restricting his ability to access Radmin is a security risk.
Why do you let your 10 year old run as Admin??
Has anyone really tested this thing from a user or power user account? You get the right click menu, and can select "Settings for RAdmin Server" or "Stop Radmin," but these commands are silently ignored, probably because these users don't have the permission to stop the process or to change the registry keys.
