Tight VNC not allowing to log on to 200 pro pc when pc is logged off

When the machine that I'm wanting to log on to with Tight VNC is logged off of Window's it will not accept the password and therefore will not log in.

When Windows is logged in, Tight VNC will log in without a problem.

did you set the password in both option areas

vnc - show user settings
administration - show default settings

make sure they are identical in both

Hi DB_Sol,

you need to install VNC as a service - start - program - tightvnc - admin - then there is an install as service option in there

Cheers!

similar probems i had was if windows firewall and application layer gateway is enabled

other than that, reinstall VNC it is buggy at the best of times so this doesnt surprise me

does it fail authentication or does it not connect

did you change passwords on this VNC server.. ever?
sometimes it gets screwed up when it's password is changed.

Also are you using windows authentication?  That might be the issue.

DB_SolAuthor Commented:
It does fail authentication but it does connect. If the pc is logged in then VNC will connect.

Yes, I did change the passwords on the server however I have uninstalled this and then reinstalled and the behavior is the same.

No, I am not using windows authentication

This is the only computer on the network that displays this behavior.
