My CyberCafe is a powerful program made to permit cybercafe owners and administrators to easily manage the internal structure of their computers for clients as well as employees. The package consists of a server and client, along with handy options and customization preferences.
Server and client tools
The server component has to be installed on the computer where commands will be carried out from and launched with administrative rights, while the client has to be set up on one or multiple machines in the local network, in order to manage user permissions for them.
View client details and organize data
It is possible to password-protect the server module, examine a list with clients found in the network, specify the hourly fees (basic rate and price adjustment) and time interval, as well as run a test to evaluate the settings.
Manage user permissions and schedule automatic tasks
What's more, you can configure access options for the clients by putting together groups and picking the type of data to show on the logon page and workstation, as well as ask My CyberCafe to automatically clear Internet-related info when logging out, such as cookies, history and personal certificates.
The program also lets you schedule the terminal to shut down or restart at a specific time, control and set up a charge for print jobs on local or network printers at your clients, terminate unwanted applications and close windows, intercept Windows-critical key combinations, block the access to CD-ROM drives, prevent Windows configuration modifications and restrict the operating system to any programs, and so on.
Evaluation and conclusion
The tool certainly comes loaded with a bunch of useful features and personalization settings for efficiently managing remote workstations and restricting the access of their users. It runs on minimal CPU and RAM, so it shouldn't put a strain on the computer's overall performance. Thanks to its resourceful skill set, My CyberCafe should meet the requirements of advanced users.
