Projects Secure Technology Group... Your Technology is Our business http://www.securetech.com.au/projects/ Thu, 22 Aug 2013 22:47:15 +0000 Joomla! 1.5 - Open Source Content Management en-gb Version 1.11.4.47 released http://www.securetech.com.au/projects/scprompt/version-111447-released.html http://www.securetech.com.au/projects/scprompt/version-111447-released.html So much has changed in this version that we figured it was about time to move to version #1 ...

http://vnc2me.org/downloads/view-details/scprompt/scprompt-1.11.4.47-roll-your-own-alpha-release.html

New manual version released (We realised this hadn't been updated in a while ... only about 2 years old)

http://vnc2me.org/downloads/view-details/scprompt/scprompt-2011-manual.html

Updates for THIS release

  • Add - All GUI - Disclaimer GUI shows on startup if disclaimer.htm or disclaimer_*language*.htm exists in scprompt dir (examples: disclaimer_english.htm or disclaimer_german.htm)
    Add - All GUI - New tool menu to allow whiteboard writing on screen
    Add - All GUI - New tool menu to Start Beacon GUI to call user back to screen.
    Add - All GUI - Contextual menu to the Main GUI Screens (doesn't work too well on button or automatic GUIs - but otherwise works well)
    Add - Auto GUI - translation are now available for this GUI type
    Add - Auto GUI - Is now an option in GUI_Type within the INI (in addition to the commandline)
    Add - Auto GUI - Option to disable Beeps on timer count-down ([Common] > GUIAUTOSILENT=1)
    Add - Manual GUI - Is now an option in GUI_Type within the INI (will make settings manager easier to setup manual & automatic GUI's).
    Add - Button GUI - Service Mode (untested, and needs refining, but its there)
    Add - Builder - NSIS to Builder (i just made the Batch script into the autoit script ... so now it uses the directory name as the application name)
    Add - Builder - Setting for Pre (Before) & Post (After) when creating the shortcuts in NSIS mode Builder.INI (best i can do at this point)
    Add - Settings Manager - New settings manager (has 4 tabs in it now, to make selections a little easier to understand, and give me room to add more settings as required).
    Add - Settings Manager - a "test it" button (or press "CTRL + T").
    Add - Settings Manager - GUI (Accelerator) shortcut keys for Apply ("CTRL + S") and new test ("CTRL + T")
    UPDATE - Settings Manager - now uses (most of) the latest settings and should be easier and better to use (a few of the minor setting left out, but it is enough for the moment)
    UPDATE - All GUI - Change all Languages to use Seperate Language INI files (including English) to allow better selection of Languages and easier Maintenance into the future.
    UPDATE - All GUI - Translations now all use the LANG_*****.INI files. All OS IDs are now automatic - may add manual override at a later date if required.
    UPDATE - All GUI - Make sure all Translated Languages are in this release
    FIX - Error with Combo GUI and one Predefined Connection + Manual (the Predefined connection would disapear - leaving only manual)
    Removed - All GUI - Dependancy on [Common] > UsePredefined=1 has been removed as it is no longer needed due to setting Manual as a GUI_Type option

 

TO-DO for NEXT release

  • Add - Translator - New App - allows easy selection and addition of languages - which can then be listed for blank translations
  • Add - All GUI - If Admin, shutdown all known other versions of VNC before starting SCPrompt in servicemode, then start them up again on exit (save the services we stopped to a temp .ini to allow for recovery after support finishes, no matter how many reboots later that is)
  • Add - Builder - Allow Setting of Company name and more from INI for NSIS package type
  • Add - Settings Manager - Option to setup your own UVNC Password (and read the current one in if possible
  • UPDATE - All GUI - UVNC version to 1.0.9.5+ (requires above in settings manager)
  • UPDATE - Buttons GUI - Fix when manual button pressed, the manual address, port & ID inputs cannot be clicked (but can tab to them)
  • UPDATE - All GUI - Get all translations updated !!!
  • FIX - Auto GUI - Diagnose why the icon doesn't change on automatic GUI ... (why does it ?)

 

Delayed indefinitely

  • Add - All GUI - Safemode starting of VNC server - The Latest BETA version of UVNC server allows for rebooting to safe mode ... so not needed anymore - just replace winvnc.exe with latest BETA (which is already a to-do for the next release)

Wireless Broadband & Dialup Control Application http://www.securetech.com.au/projects/autodialer/stgautodialer.html http://www.securetech.com.au/projects/autodialer/stgautodialer.html About:

STG_AutoDialer will establish a dialup (RAS) connection, and maintain it ... if connection is dropped, the application automatically redials to selected connection.

The STG_AutoDialer application creates a log file, recording the connection times, when a connection is lost (and thus redialed). The log file is automatically deleted upon each launch of the application (ie on reboot).

The STG_AutoDialer only checks for connection status each second, this reduces needless CPU power being consumed.

The application displays as a tray icon only (after setup), and is designed to only display minimal information (except when re/dialing). The Tray Icon looks like a traffic light, and is made up of three different icon files which can be replaced with other icons as needed.

License:

Secure Technology Group is proud to provide above program as a free open source application.

It is provided under the GPL license (version 3 or later).

This application is provided in the hope that it may be useful.
It is provided without warranty, implied or otherwise.

Testing and background:

I have several relatives that are not so good with computers, but like the internet.
I managed to get them to agree to automatically dialing the internet on computer startup.
This means that remote PC support is fairly painless.
After this application was setup for family, i had a need to maintain a RAS connection on a remote system (that took 2 hours drive for the nearest tech to get to). so this application was redeveloped to create a RAS connection, rather then relying on Huwaei modem software (and pressing buttons within it)

Testing has been done on windows 2000 & XP machines, although Vista & 7 should work fine also.

Installing:

This application was originally designed to be used with huwaei wirerless broadband modem software.

As such, we expected the application to be run the the installation directory of your huwaei modem connectivity software.

When run for the first time, it will prompt for the following:

  1. 1) the filename of the huwaei modem software (this is usually customised by your ISP);
  2. 2) the name of the Connection Prompt (when above is started and connect button pressed), while dialing and establishing connection;
  3. 3) the name of the dialup connection to use (application will use this name to dial the internet, so if its wrong, manual editing of the INI may be required;

 

These settings will be saved to the INI for future use.

Running:

A shortcut can be added to this startup folder, to make the application automatically start on Logon.

See customising section for available commandline arguements.

Customising:

Icons

If the following Icons exist in the same directory, application will use them by defualt, else use its internal ones:
   icon.ico (replaces the icon taken from huwaei connection app (used in tray on startup only)
   green.ico (used when successful connection is made and all is good)
   orange.ico (used while connection is being established)
   red.ico (used when disconnection is detected)

Command Line Arguements

Only one commandline arguement exists at present:
   Startup (puts application to sleep for 60 seconds ... this helps with old slower computers, makes sure they have time to start esentual apps).

PC Beacon http://www.securetech.com.au/projects/opensource/pc-beacon.html http://www.securetech.com.au/projects/opensource/pc-beacon.html PC Beacon flashes the screen and speaks "Attention Required" from the speakers of the computer (using text-to-speech processor). It was made for use on customers sites where you are remotely controlling a computer, and either require the users attention again, or need someone to find the appropriate PC quickly and easily.

Download PC Beacon

This is achieved, through changing (toggling) the background colour of a full-screen window (with no borders) from green to red. The colour change rate is easily changeable (set for once per second as standard).

As normal, this application is written in AutoIt Scripting Language, and has the source code included as a resource of the application.

Minor modifications would be needed to allow setting of all variables from an INI, as the whole script is contained within one function (to allow easy importing into existing projects)

Application is licensed under GPL 3 or later.

SCPrompt - Open Source Remote Destop Support Tool http://www.securetech.com.au/projects/scprompt/scprompt-open-source-remote-destop-support-tool.html http://www.securetech.com.au/projects/scprompt/scprompt-open-source-remote-destop-support-tool.html SCPrompt is a versatile Remote Support Application by SecureTech. SCPrompt allows a person to create a customised Remote Support Tool for their company.

The Roll Your Own (RYO) download, allows you to create your own EXE to send to clients (or upload to your website) which when executed, creates a "reverse" VNC connection (Server tries to connect to listening Viewer).

For those that just want to test it before going through the hassle of learning it, try the "Ready To Roll" version, which allows manual entry of address and port details for easy connection.

VNC2Me http://www.securetech.com.au/projects/vnc2me/vnc2me.html http://www.securetech.com.au/projects/vnc2me/vnc2me.html Some years ago, we created JDsVNC, which essentually created a SSH tunnel, and ran UltraVNC SC through that tunnel. After several redevelopments, we reached a conclusion that there was better choices available in the open source world.

When the best of those choices changed from being open source to closed source and offering a commercial product, we decided to create our own. VNC2Me was born out of this need.

VNC2Me was originally started several years ago, and went through rapid development for some time, until a stable release was created.

VNC2Me Development is an ongoing commitment from Secure Technology Group, and we are currently looking at ways to increase the availability of this product to the public (as many users comment it is the easiest remote support application they have used).

UltraVNC Website Redevelopment http://www.securetech.com.au/projects/uvnc/uvnc.html http://www.securetech.com.au/projects/uvnc/uvnc.html The UltraVNC Website was developed by the core developer of UltraVNC over several years. It served its purpose at the time, and is a credit to its creator. The problem is, that the website is outdated, and is rather confusing. It needed a way of being updated quickly, easily and remotely. A CMS (Content Management System) was decided as the best option.
