How can I play fbs files or is there another format I can use from VNC viewer

Hi guys
I have recorded a VNC session with java based VNC viewer. But now I don't know how to view the recorded files, as they have fbs extension ? !

What is that file extension? How can I play them? And is there another format I can save the recorded session to?

Your help is greatly appreciated !!

thx
Daniel

TightVNC 1.3.9, java viewer

I am checking this flex source viewer, but I suppose there is still a way of seeing it with java VNC viewer itself...

According to TightVNC documentation it can only save the sessions and not replay them itself. It states that it can be used with rfbproxy:

Yes i have seen this rfbproxy, but i don't know how to run it.
The sources of it (as far as i know) are not written in Java or C.
If you know where i can found a jar of this rfbproxy it would be great

It is C code, fetch a release here:
http://cyberelk.net/tim/data/rfbproxy/stable/

And compile it in cygwin. Run configure to create the makefile.

To tell you the truth i am a Java developer and my knowledge of C is very limited.
Is there a chance you can tell me in more details how exactly i should compile and configure the necessary settings for it, or just point me to compiled dll.

thx

Downlaod cygwin if you do not have it.
Unzip the source to some folder.
Go there in cygwin.
Type: ./configure
This will create the Makefile for you.
Type: make
This will create rfbproxy.exe. Run it with -p to replay a file.

I have to run configure on another version of this package (rfbproxy -0.6.6)
with same error.

WerrockCommented:
Hmm, that is strange. I will send you the Makefile i got.

I think that something is missing in my sygwin. I am getting
"bash: make: command not found " message when running make.

while it should be part of sygwin installation, as i have seen in
http://cygwin.com/packages/
"make - The GNU version of the 'make' utility"

is it possible that i should download additional packages for cygwin ?

WerrockCommented:
Yes you need to select make when downloading cygwin. Just restart the setup.exe for cygwin and select the make utility and you should be fine, it is located under development.

he misses the gcc toolchain. There is no compiler :)

Try this fbs player, insted: http://www.wizhelp.com/flashlight-vnc/index.html

I tried that flashlight player and couldnt figure it out. I was looking for a plain executable somewhere in the download but never saw one. Run executable -> point to fbs file was what I was looking for but I think it needs more than that.
