My company went through some hardware upgrades, in the process we received a few laptops and one of the laptops was placed in a room that required a closed circuit video camera. I did not have the time to route power from a closed cicuit video camera to an additional power source and all the other wiring involved in that project. I purchased a regular USB webcam and did a little research online and found this program called 'Tight VNC' which is a nifty remote desktop program that I hope everyone else finds useful.
