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 v7.7 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 a 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 v7.7 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.

Unbeatable Support Policy

LanSchool v7.7 comes with three years of free telephone and e-mail support. If you have a problem that we cannot resolve quickly over the phone or Internet, we’ll fly an engineer onsite at our expense anywhere in North America.
