Hi,
I'm looking to set up a classroom environment where there a single PC is connected to a projector. I want any user with a laptop to be able to connect to this PC via WiFi and stream its desktop to the PC, which will then be displayed through the projector.

For instance, suppose there is one PC (named A) connected to a projector and a laptop named B. I want the laptop B to share its desktop with A, which will then be shown via the projector.

But most desktop sharing software, like TeamViewer requires the desktop PC (A) to send a request to the laptop (B) which the laptop has to accept, upon which its desktop can be seen on A. But, I want the laptop (B) to initiate the request and the PC (A) to approve it. That is, if B wants to show its desktop on A, then a request should be sent by B, which is then approved by A, upon which B's desktop will be available on A.

Is there any software out there which does this function?

Try using gomeetnow www.gomeetnow.com desktop sharing tool. It provides feature wherein, everyone in a meeting can present his desktop. The meeting host can assign any attendee as the current "presenter" of his computer screen to all the meeting's participants.
