Remote Control Agent "Starts by Itself"

Remote Control Agent "Starts by Itself"

Remote Control Agent "Starts by Itself"

SMS 1.2 - Our NT 4.0/SP6 client configurations are set to **not** allow remote access (SMS.INI settings).   I ask because a user called me over to their desktop with the remote control agent up and running. First time I'd seen this dialog box (we use VNC), and before looking at the soruce of the access on the dialog box, terminated it.

Assuming I'm the only one in our subnet that has access to the SMS Administrator app, is there any way possible that a user with enough permissions could somehow start a session via command line or remotely?

If admin permissions are required to use this tool, I'm doubly concerned.
