This is already possible in Remote Administrator 2.1. When there are no connections, RAdmin Server tray icon is blue. When connecetion session is active, RAdmin Server tray icon changes to red.
Martin, you misunderstand the issue. He isn't concerned about whether or not some remote machine is secretly connecting in to the machine he is sitting at. He wants to blank the screen on an unattended remote machine that he is connecting to because there is no way of knowing if someone is watching what he is doing on that remote machine.
For instance, I'm at home and want to connect in to an unattended accounting machine at my office. I do not want people walking around in the office to see private HR or accounting information on the screen of the machine being remoted. But there is no way to positively prevent this. Sure, you could try to remember to turn off the screen on the office accounting machine before you come home, but there is no guarantee that it is still off.
Every other remote-access software I use allows blanking of the remote screen as well as disabling keyboard & mouse input from the remote machine.
This capability has been promised by Famatech for, literally, years. Without it, the product has proven to be of limited usefulness. They obviously don't care, but I've been forced to spend more money on other non-Radmin remote access solutions than I ever spent on Radmin (and I own multiple licenses of Radmin).
I check back here every once in awhile to see if Radmin now has this basic, essential functionality that every other remote access product has. Take a look at my post above. Last time I was here was July, 2011. And this capability has been promised by Radmin "in the next version" for at least 3-4 years.
