VNC Commander Pro Ideas?

I've been working on a project for nearly 6 months somewhat like this.
My program will scan networks for VNC hosts and will create HTML and/or
Shortcuts to them.  I'm adding the more subtle (and confusing:) features
at the moment such as copy and pasting and keeping track of hosts and
scans in INI files.  At the moment, this will run on both Windows and
Linux, however I can't guarantee Linux support in the future, however,
it should be "do-able".  After this project is released, I'm planning on
writing a program that sits on a server and constantly scans (of course
at configurable times) a network updating a DB or HTML file.

	Here is a link to a fairly recent version, however this *IS*
alpha/beta code and will have some bugs and some features may not fully
work, but you can give it a try...

Subject: VNC Commander Pro Ideas?


I was just wondering how many people would be interested in a File
Sharing daemon that would run on Linux for VNC Commander Pro? I have the
ability to easily do this using the same source code. (Thanks to Borland
Kylix http://www.borland.com/kylix).

I would also like to know if a windows help file would be a welcome
addition?

VNC Commander Pro will include the following features.

1. Everything VNC Commander has +
    a. File sharing/Sys Info Agent that will run as a Win9x/NT/2K
service
    b. Port scanner to build a basic list - it will be able to scan a
class b subnet (65,000 addresses) for the port of your choice and add a
icon to the list, you would then be able to customize
        the icons.
    c. A full windows based help system (standard help and html help,
your choice).


If I put all this work into it, I won't be able to give it away for
free.  I just want to cover my costs so I was thinking of a registration
fee of say 29.00 US dollars for unlimited use per company.  So 29 bucks
will allow you to use as many copies as you want.

Another option would be to just charge for the help file?

I will make the decision based on your feedback to this question.  I am
not out to make shitloads of cash on this, I just want to cover my
costs, so I can continue to provide quality software and service.

Thanks,

Tony Caduto
