Is there any software that will let me control multiple remote computers?

by on January 14, 2011

Q: I’m looking for a piece of software or hardware and wondered if it was available? I want to control several computers through one computer but here’s the thing, when I move the mouse on one host computer I want the mouse to move exactly the same on the other computers, and when i type something on one computer i want the same thing to be typed on all of them. Is this possible and do you have the answer please?

    Generally this isn’t something you’d want to do, since every computer (even if they’re all running the same hardware) is going to respond a little differently. You’ll have a high level of inaccuracy and wind up wasting more time than you would have saved.

    If you need to apply the same process to multiple PCs the best practice for this kind of this is to some form of scripting or automation, which is quite common.

    What is the probably you’re trying to solve exactly? If you provide the real end goal here I can probably provide you a very workable solution.
