Windows Server 2003 and VNC not quite working

I am trying to use VNC ( http://www.realvnc.com/ ) on Windows Server 2003 and i am having some problems.

I have used this without problems before on several desktops on the network.

I have the Internet Connection Firewall enabelled and ensured that the correct ports are open ( 5800 and 5900 ).

This server does not have a valid password enabled. Util a password is set, incoming connections cannot be accepted.

I have never come across this before. The server currently logs on to the server using the administrators account which does has a password set.

Does anyone know what this message is and what i can do to resolve the problem.

thank you  =)

This message is coming from VNC, not from Windows.

You have to have a valid access password set in the VNC settings before it will allow you to connect to the VNC server component.

You need to set an access password and the run the service helper (if I remember right).  These need to be done at the console.

I ran into the same problem trying to install it via Terminal Services on a 2000 machine once.

Hope this helps.

Why are you using VNC?
Windows 2003 brought in the capability to see the actual console on the system.

Make sure that you have the Windows 2003 version of the RDP client installed, then type the following in the RUN box or command line:

mstsc /console

You could also modify the remote desktop client.
