Houston, TX — July 2nd, 2003 — SilverNetworks today released a
significant update to it’s remote screen capture tool, Spy.
Spy allows you to run a server on your Mac, that when accessed by any
normal web browser, allows people to see a snapshot of your screen, as well
as information about your Macintosh. But it doesn’t stop there – they can
look at a normal static image, or they can look at your screen, live,
continously updated, in real-time! You can also choose which image format
you want to use – JPEG or PNG. Not only that, but the user can choose what
picture quality they want by manually specifying their desired
quality/depth and scale in the picture.jpg or picture.png request.

a detailed “Log Window”, a “Live Connections” manager that lets you see
everyone that is viewing your desktop live as well as disconnect any of
those users, an “External IP” window which displays your true, external IP
address, even if you are behind a router or firewall, and external file
serving via the built-in web server. Best of all, Spy is completely free,
and supports a wide variety of Macs.
