Hi!

We have developed a remote control application, and it works "fine", so we
can see the remote desktop on our screen, move the cursor, click, write,
etc...

The "problem" is that, we need it to go FASTER!

I know it depends on which components we use, network speed and the source
code used, but...
Which are the best methods to transfer images and info between computers?
UDP or TCP? (we use Indy idTCP components)

To transfer the desktop image...
we capture the screen to a BMP, then save it to JPG, compress it using UCL
compression and save to a Stream, just to send it to the remote computer.
Is this the faster method?

Any ideas to improve the speed of this type of applications?
