Apologies for the tacky cross-posting, but I wanted to
let y'all know of an update to Kaboodle, brought to you by the
same bunch bringing you the GoToMyVNC.com services.
Hope it proves helpful!

Subject: Kaboodle 0.99b released!
Heya Kaboodle users. This email is an announcement of the
version 0.99b release of Kaboodle. You can find it here:
This new version has the following enhancements:
* The VPN engine now exclusively uses Zebedee for both secure
transport and authentication. The GetEngaged website has been
redone to create the required key and id files accordingly
(ie, http://www.GetEngaged.net ).
* The VPN feature now uses only one TCP port (user configurable)
rather than two. It also no longer uses Gnuetlla for partner
auto-discovery -- that feature will be brought back in 1.0 once
KaboodleProxy is fully operational. In the meantime, you'll
need to manually provide the IP or FQDN address of your target
* The remote-control interface has been simplified. An obvious
"Connect" button will automatically activate a remote-control
connection using remote-desktop, VNC, or HTTP web-config,
depending on what the target device supports. It will also
attempt a network-install and auto-activation of VNC if the
OS's on both ends support it.
* If Kaboodle gets confused, you can now force it to cleanly
re-create it's network database. Just hold down the SHIFT key
while Kaboodle is starting up.
* Kaboodle now comes with a folder containing some "helper"
applications that it frequently uses, including Zebedee
* Lotsa bug fixes (thanks to everyone's emails about the hiccups
As always, Kaboodle is free and open-source. You can obtain
the source-code on Echogent's FTP server at "ftp.echogent.com".
Comments or questions welcome. Enjoy!
