True that remote desktop does not support passive viewing ?

I want to be able to take over the remote PC BUT allow someone at the other
end
to watch what i am doing (like VNC etc.)

It seems that remote desktop does not support this ?

Is this true ?

Thanks

Remote Desktop.. Well - there is "shadowing" - but that is not meant for the
normal setup.

Remote Assistance is what you are looking for. Check into that instead.
(It will require that the person at the other end invite you, you accept and
use the invitation, they allow you onto their computer and if you want to
control it - you take control and they allow that as well.)

Otherwise.. TightVNC or UltraVNC are your freebie friends.
