Description Jef Spaleta 2004-10-03 13:17:55 EDT
Description of problem:
After turning on desktop sharing there is no visual indication that
desktop sharing is on. I think a notification icon that at a minimum
indicates when desktop sharing is active would aid in users from
engaging in activity they would otherwise refrain from while desktop
sharing was enabled. The goal here is a request to implement a visual
reminder, notification icon was the first thing that came to mind.

Let me take a moment and prioritize a list of features i would like to
see for any mechanism to be adopted as a visual reminder that desktop
sharing is active:

1) indication that sharing is active
2) be able to call up the preference dialog from a right click menu on
the icon
3) number of remote clients access
4) ability to review the ipaddress/hostname of remote connections
5) ability to disconnect/refuse specific remote connections

Yep, its been on the TODO list since the start. No harm having it in
bugzilla, though:
