What is Kaboodle all about?
Kaboodle is a free, open-source LAN command-console for Windows.
It can automatically detect your LAN population, help you take remote-control
of what it finds, and can be used to securely connect two LAN's together across
the Internet. It is designed to enable these really cool network capabilities for
the "average" Internet user -- ie, someone who knows their email address but
not their IP address.
The main GUI of Kaboodle displays a visual representation of your
LAN and all of the devices detected within it. You can then take remote
control of many of these devices simply by double-clicking on them. Once
your network is under control, you can use Kaboodle's GetEngaged capability to connect your LAN with another Kaboodle
user's LAN, across the Internet.
When you're connected with your "Personal VPN" partner, or group
of partners, anything you can do with Kaboodle on your local network (remote-control, file-transfer, network discovery, etc.), you can do
with the remote network as well.
