Remote desktop question

Does anyone know if it's possible to use remote desktop in a way that allows
both the person in front of the remote controlled machine and the person
remote controlling the machine to see the screen at the same time instead of
the controlled machine being locked? I'm purely talking about remote
desktop connections here, not remote assistance.

You can use TightVNC. It'll allow that to happen and is free.

You can do this with the /console switch, but only if the host
is a Windows Server.

We use VNC on our LAN to do just that, works very well

I think I should have been more clear and painted some context for my query.
Someone who I have remote desktop'ed say's they could see what I was doing
and I did not think that was possible so was wondering if it was.

As the other respondens said, VNC can do just this.

Hey fellows be careful installing TightVNC because it's defined as
SPYWARE. Don't hesitate and remove this malware. Instructions here:
'remove TightVNC'

That's pretty strange, because TightVNC and other flavors of VNC are
well-regarded programs that have been around for years. I can see how
this remote desktop control software might be used for nefarious
purposes, but it wouldn't be easy to get on someone's machine without
them knowing it. I certainly wouldn't class it as "spyware".

I looked at the website where you got this, but oddly enough there is
nothing about who *wrote* the website. Whenever you read something on a
website, it is a good idea to look for an "About" section so you can
make an informed decision as to whether the people involved are
trustworthy.

Where did you find out about this spyware removal site? The site
registrant is WhoisGuard. If you do a Google search for those people,
they show up on lots of sites as spammers. So I definitely wouldn't
trust them. If you are affiliated with this company and have tried a
cunning plan to seed this site, then you've been outed.

If you are legitimately looking for antispyware information sites, here
are a few good ones:

All flavours of VNC can be used as spyware, because they allow
an ousider to monitor your PC. However, there are a few important
distinctions:
- Spyware gets installed by stealth, without you knowing about it.
VNC gets installed by you.
- Spyware works invisibly. VNC shows an applet in the System
Tray while it is active.
- Spyware is launched automatically. VNC requires the outside
person to enter a password.

Furthermore, VNC lets you select its port number to further
shield your machine against unwelcome intrusion. I often select
port 5967 and tell my firewall to block most other ports.
