Deploy Logmein with Scout on your network

After the former article On how to deploy Logmein in your organisation, I found Logmein Scout.

Logmein Scout enables you to scan your network for computers but with a twist it will also detect what remote administration tools there are installed on them.
It detects most commonly used tools like: UltraVNC, PcAnywhere, Radmin and a bunch other ones. And the best part is it is FREE.

After logmein scout scans the network you will be able to select a computer and remotely install Logmein on it. This is exaclty what I was looking for.
(it assumes your are the domain admin off course)

Logmein also provides in an ADM file to control logmein through grouppolicies.
You can for example disallow access to the Logmein Administration tool.

you can download logmein scout from here
