It would be good if the RADMIN viewer (not the server) could be installed to a USB pen drive for use anywhere.
This would mean all viewer settings and server connection definitions would need to be stored in the program directory (and not elsewhere - like the registry for example).
Obviously connection passwords should never be saved.
I only ask as RADMIN 3 beta viewer is a seperate install and it would save having to install the viewer everywhere the server is installed and duplicate settings (so only required on the server if the server is the gateway to another network not accessible externally).
Hope this make some sense (idea came from using apps at portableapps.com and portablefreeware.com).
You can leave the radmin.exe file from radmin viewer 3 on your pen drive and run it from anywhere. If you want to import your phonebook maybe you could run a quick batch file to import the phonebook and then run the viewer....
Ideally though no files should be created on the computer.
Any changes to your phone book would also need to be copied back to the pen drive. Maybe 2 scripts - import and export.
I guess all that would need to be done is add an optional command switch that tells the viewer which phone book to use (default could still be the one under "application data").
I assume I am right in thinking you cannot connect to the server using a VNC viewer (albeit with limited functionality - never tried it, but I do have tightVNC viewer which works well off a pen drive - not as nice an interface though)
Looks like there is a registry key which controls where to look for the phonebook file. I'm not sure how many workstations you have, but maybe on your next image you could point that key to a network share that your IT staff have mapped.
You could always update the registry key through your login script also without too many headaches.
/connect:xxxxx:nnnn - specify an address and a port of the server. This option is required for a
connection without a phonebook.
/through:xxxxx:nnnn - specify an address and a port of an intermediate server
The default connection mode is 'Full control' (to see the remote screen, send local mouse and keyboard
To specify other connection modes use switches:
/noinput - specify a View only connection mode (view of remote screen).
/shutdown - specify a Shutdown connection mode
/file - specify a File connection mode
/telnet - specify a Telnet connection mode
These switches are used in 'Full control' and 'View only' modes:
/fullscreen - specify the fullscreen view mode
/hicolor - specify a 65536 color format, while transferring via a network.
/locolor - specify a 16 color format, while transferring via a network.
/updates:nn - specify a maximum number of screen updates per second
/encrypt - specify to encrypt the data stream
/unregister - delete an already entered key for Radmin.
/? - shows help screen
Sorry for digging up such an old post, but I thought it should be updated for accuracy.
You can download a portable/stealth version of Radmin Viewer from my site. It has full persistent phonebook support for Radmin Viewer 3.3, and because the portable version uses a wrapper script, both your host-PC registry entries and portable registry entries will be preserved.
