The Screen Snapshot Service is logically composed of three parts:
11 1 Kurt Biery
12 2 Kurt Biery
* Producers that periodically capture snapshots of a specified computer desktop and send the snapshots to a server.
13 2 Kurt Biery
* A server that receives the snapshots from the producers, converts them to image files in an easily accessible format, and serves them to consumers.
14 2 Kurt Biery
* Consumers that periodically fetch updated images from the server and display them to a user.

As mentioned above, the snapshot server runs inside of Tomcat, and the snapshot producer runs using Java Web Start. As such, installation of the snapshot service really boils down to installing Tomcat on your server PC and enabling Java Web Start on your producer hosts. The following links provide some instructions for installing S3, but they don't go into details of Tomcat or Java installation.
