Lanschool® Technical Advantages

Low network bandwidth

LanSchool requires between 5% and 20% of the bandwidth used by the competition. While showing the teacher's screen, LanSchool V8.0 uses around 24 KB/sec. Monitoring thumbnails requires less than 10 KB/sec. Because LanSchool uses a broadcast or multicast packet, the bandwidth required for controlling two computers is close to that required by 250 computers. Other product's bandwidth requirements increase with every additional computer that is monitored.


LanSchool thwarts attempts by students to disrupt the class by disabling the software. LanSchool students will re-join the session if the network is unplugged, the service will re-start automatically, and registry keys are protected from change. Savvy students will have the competitive products disabled in minutes.


If you suspect a student is using an unauthorized teacher console, you can quickly identify them with the security monitoring tool. It captures all LanSchool activity to a log file. There is also a "secure" version of LanSchool that requires teachers to enter a password to open the console.

Works with Subnets and VLANS

LanSchool V8.0 functions across subnets and VLANs using Multicast and Directed Broadcast technology. Port 796 is the only port required.

Low processor and memory requirements

LanSchool only requires about 4% of the processor and 8 MB of memory on the client.

Certified Microsoft Mirror Driver

LanSchool certifies the mirror driver with Microsoft. Most of the competitors are using uncertified drivers which are susceptible to "blue screens".

Unbeatable Support Policy

LanSchool V8.0 comes with three years of free telephone and e-mail support.
