    I work in education. We have a need to provide remote instruction and monitoring to the systems in the labs. On the Mac / OS X side, Apple Remote Desktop does a fine job. On the PC side there are some good but pricey solutions. VNC is free and works well, but I want to connect to it from a Mac.  Chicken of the VNC lists systems through Bonjour advertisements. Despite installing Bonjour on the PCs, these advertisements are not being made.  I am wondering if anybody knows of piece of software that could allow Windows systems to be discovered either by ARD or Chicken of the VNC, complete with machine names. Are there any programmers that perhaps could tackle this? Bonjour Browser lists the service name as "_rfb._tcp" . Thanks in advance for any help.
