Control a PC remotely from your Mac.

Overview

WinJack is a powerful remote control tool. It allows Mac OS X users to navigate through files and volumes on a Windows based machine, delete, move, rename, remotely open, cut/copy/paste, and show/hide them, even eMail them, as well as browse trough and manipulate the Registry.

The client can also send messages, create folders, open URLs, shut down, restart, log out or allert the Windows machine. It even allows screenshot taking and managing, picture and text-file opening, or picture and text-file sending, process viewing, file uploading and downloading and keyboard+mouse simulating.

WinJack(client) also includes powerful loging capabilities and advanced sound-notification capabilities. What makes WinJack(Server) even more powerFull, is its ability to write it's self into the Registry, so that it will automaticly run on startup.

An innovative feature of WinJack(Server), is that it can store the IP of its "Main Client", to which it will always try to connect. That way, the Main Client(Mac OS X) will always know whether the server(s) are online or not, and of course it's/their [new] IP. That makes WinJack an essential remote administration tool for security experts, business people, IT managers, teachers, or even Mac geeks who just want to see their Windoze friends losing it!

Hi, I have recently decided to check how vunerable my brothers computer is (with his permission of course) it is really easy to get into his computer when mine is connected to the lan, however - the computer goes though a router, and when on the internet in another location - i.e. connecting through a different access point, I can not manage / think of a way to connect through the router to his computer. Anyone have any ideas (maybe a vpn but i dont know how to set one up?) many thanks in advance. Grant

I'm not a computer wiz so don't laugh. Since my remote computer has a dial up connection, can I automatically have it email me it's IP address? Thanks.

Well, that feature is not implemented in WinJack. Though I bet there are other apps out there just for that specific job :)

Give me a brake if someone thinks this is a way to hack a windows box please to let me start, I have seen one to many hacked at companies I have worked for, but then that is the price of using computer this is not a perfect world. Its the newby who almost always talk about hacking, what they don't realize that real hackers lots of times are inside the company not outside.

"Its the newby who almost always talk about hacking". You're right, but also wannabe hackers. Usually, someone whose comment on a piece of software like this is that it can be used to hack is someone who's unable to hack any box at all - not even misuing this app.

if thats the case then everyone should be suing everyone for making MP3 players, Text Editors and so on. Each and every one of WinJack's technologies are the result of months of hard work of the developer and no-one else, and are all Public standarts You expect from a Remote Control Tool (was remote file browsing Apple's Idea?)

IIRC Remote Desktop is a Microsoft product. In any case, the protocols underlying the whole Windows remote desktop thing are technology that originated with Citrix.

Anybody ever hear of VNC (Virtual Network Computing)? They've been doing this, cross-platform, for many years now. This is not a new concept by ANY means.
