1) I would like to build a customized version of the UltraVNC SC program that I can send to other people to use when they would like me to control their computers.

I know I have to edit helpdesk.txt and provide an IP address and a port  number. I've been told to use the IP address that is reported by whatismyipaddress.com (71.245.221.xxx). I also discovered that VNC is a service known to my Westell gateway and uses port 5500 as the primary port, so I will use the following:

71.245.221.xxx:5500

Then all I have to do is create a ZIP file of helpdesk.txt and whatever else -- rc4.key and images -- I want to use, and then use the online creator.

I can send the result to anyone I like. When they want me to look at their computer, they call me to alert me and then run the program I sent them (the program does not have to be installed.)

Am I right so far?


2. If I want to place the Ultra VNC SC program on a computer that is connected to my LAN, the 71.245.221.xxx number is no good, right?

Can I just create a second program with the internal IP address (192.168.1.xxx) of the computer that will run VNC in listen mode in helpdesk.txt?


3. Is there an SC for Linux?

Thanks.
