Remote Desktop Login

Hello Ranchies,
I want to write an application for remote desktop login, where my application will accept the remote m/c's IP address, read its registry, read its desktop contents, replace my desktop by remote m/c's desktop, and delegate all my keyboard and mouse events to that m/c. Ofcourse i will be installing my application on that remote machine, but it should be working in the background.
My question is, are there any pdfs/online-tutorials/reference material/books which i can refer to? I want to code this on windows platform. Thanks.
Regards,
Ashish Agrawal.

Why write such a thing yourself when VNC exists?
Also note that although you could certainly write a client for this in Java, you'll not be able to write the server without native code.

Or how about Ultra VNC with its file transfer and some encryption as well?

Well, Ultra VNC is Open Source and they provide an Http Java Applet for the Server so you can connect through the web instead of a desktop client app. I would imagine you can get a hold of the source for that applet and see how they have done it.

Tnx gregg, but i need the source code in java for windows platform or even some reference material/tuts will do. Just now i downloaded "UltraVNC-100-RC11b.zip" file, but it is having only the binary files and not the code. Please suggest me how can i proceed. tnx.
