To kick off this new Mac Administration forum, Duke Browning (one of the developers at KACE) has created a dashboard widget: the "KBOX Connector"

For you KBOX users out there, this gives you some quick status information about your client KBOX connection:
    Green: Agent is running and connected
    Red: Agent not running
    Orange: Agent is running but not connected via SMMP/AMP
    Grey: Secondary KBOX (no connection)

It allows you to switch between a list of KBOXes you may have in your environment and lets you start an agent if you find it is not running.

This is just the first of a handful of new Mac widgets and helpful tools we plan to contribute to the community. In fact, we intend to make a big effort to post more tools and utilities for both Windows and Mac here at for everyone to share.

any chance you have updated this widget?
Extra useful would be a widget that shows what applications the particular computer can install from the kbox user login site, or lets you submit tickets to the help desk.
