Hi experts,

It seems that RealVNC connections over 5900 series ports cause Windows XP to ask for Windows Login just after entering VNC password. How do I fix?

Under VNC server mode > vnc user settings > click on Desktop and select "Do Nothing"
under  "When last client disconnect" and check out.

i dont uinderstand.  but you have a password set for the vnc session to connect, AND obviously you need a password to connect to the xp machine.

i don't get it either, there is nothing to 'fix' at all since that behavior is by design.  Since you SHOULD have to enter a windows username/password to access a PC it is simply asking you for that.

VNC should have its own completely seperate authentication, which is asked first........then you log in to windows.

Quick clarification. User is logged in XP machine and typing word document. Now, I want to VNC to machine, so I connect, and authenticate. Then, his word document disappears and Windows asks him to log in, disconnecting my connection to his machine.

When I wrote, "so I connect, and authenticate," I meant VNC authentication only, not windows.

that sounds reminiscent of how desktop RDP sessions work

"VNC will work with Windows XP provided that Fast User Switching and Remote Administration are not used. Windows XP uses the Terminal Services system to implement Fast User Switching and Remote Administration. This is not compatible with releases of VNC prior to Free Edition version 4.1 and Enterprise Edition version 4.1.3. These versions of VNC include a workaround to ensure that session zero is always available, and a more complete solution will be included in a future release"

I'm using 4.1.1, which sounds like the problem, and I have Remote Desktop enabled. I've tried TightVNC 2.2.9, but the computer has two video cards and two monitors, so TightVNC, unlike RealVNC, just shows me 1 black screen, and I cannot do anything. I will try the newest version.
