This is not my area of expertise, but I think I can give you some ideas if anything.

A good start would be developing a client/server type application, the server would run on the computer you want controlled, or accessed from the outside, the client would be a standalone app you could use on any internet connected computer to access your server computer.

the server app should wait for a connection attempt and once successfully connected broadcast general information about the system to the client as requested. cursor position, active windows, directory information. there are windows apis you can import that will let you tell the system to click the mouse, release the mouse, ect.

of course the true MS remote desktop logs you in as the user, and lots the local user out, that type of concept I wouldn't know where to begin, but as for controlling the mouse and seeing the screen via a networked computer, it wouldn't bee to amazingly difficult.


exactly ...
As a bigginer i just want to make application that will control screen or desktop of remote pc and mouse of remote pc....

then after i want to move further ...
any one can help in this direction??mainly for controlling screen ....


well I am sorry to say, this isn't exactly beginner type programming. Its a goal to work toward, break it into small pieces, get each part of the concepts working, then bring them together.

but I am sorry, I can't really help you much with it, as I'm not a great network programmer. Best of luck to you and your application.


thnks a lot ..
i said bigginer in sense of this application only, not for network programming.
i have already done 2 application in network programming
and thnks for u response
