Epoptes (Επόπτης - a Greek word for overseer) is an open source computer lab management and monitoring tool. It allows for screen broadcasting and monitoring, remote command execution, message sending, imposing restrictions like screen locking or sound muting the clients and much more!

It can be installed in Ubuntu, Debian, RPM and ArchLinux based computer labs that may contain any combination of the following: LTSP servers, thin and fat clients, non LTSP servers, standalone workstations, FreeRDP or X2Go clients etc. Patches for other distros are welcome.

Epoptes has been translated into more than 40 languages and it’s being used in many installations all around the world. It’s considered mature and periodically new features are added like the recent Python3 / Gtk3 support. It’s maintained by IT teachers that use it in their classrooms, so it should be around for a long time!
