Configuring TightVNC Remote Desktop View.

I have downloaded  TightVNC Remote Desktop View form following link

http://www.tightvnc.com/download.php

I have tried all the options stated in the link. But was not able to configure the project. The project is building and generating no error but when I insert the IP address of the Server, server not found message is delivered. I am using Windows 7 and Visual Studio 2008. Can any one help me out in configuring the following project?

Are you positive that you're connecting to the secondary computer?  It looks as though you're getting a repeating image because you've VNC'd into the same machine you're using to view.  Please confirm that you're trying to VNC into a computer OTHER than the one you're using.

You need to install the VNC server on the machine you're trying to connect to as well as the viewer on the machine you're using to connect to it.

Well. I have also checked. you need to install the server first and configure ip address and password. You just try the Self-installing package for Windows. Download it from the link given. See the help file from the help menu, how to configure with everything.

cheers

You should simply download the installer files:

http://www.tightvnc.com/download/1.3.10/tightvnc-1.3.10-setup.exe

Use that on both machines, configure how you want and then you will be able to connect.  Not sure why you are trying to use the source files.

Hi souquetbress&,

Yeh I am trying to connect to local host only. I have windows 7 on my pc tried to connect to other pc in the network which also has windows 7 installed but was not succesfull. I have disable the windows firewall and disable antivirus software on both pc but I was not able to connect to the remote computer.

Yes.  You should:

1. Install the VNC server on ALL machines that you want to connect to remotely
2. Install the VNC viewer on ALL the machines that you may want to use to connect to those machines

Lets say that you have 3 computers on your network.  They are computer A, computer B and computer C.   You want to be able to connect to each of these machines remotely.   You will install VNC server on A, B and C.  You also want to be able to VIEW A, B or C from any computer.  You will install VNC viewer on A, B and C.  

Now, let's say that you want to connect to computer B from computer A.  You will first ensure that the VNC server is running on computer B.  You will then open a connection to computer B from computer A.  From there you should be able to see/control computer B.

However, based on what you have said here it seems that you're trying to connect computer A to computer A and thus you're getting a loop back because you are connecting to the same machine that you're using the viewer on.  Make sense?

Please let me know if you have further questions, we'll get this worked out.

Hi souquetbress&,

I have tested it in the XP machines It is working fine. I am also able to connect to the XP PC which is running the VNC Server through Windows 7 PC. But when I run the VNC server in Windows 7 PC I am not able to connect to the server. I have turn off the windows firewall in windows 7 PC. Thanks for your prompt reply.

Hi souquetbress&,

I have sorted out the windows 7 issue by setting the remote view option from

Strart -> Computer -> Right Click -> Properties -> Remote Settings -> Choose the radio button having tag Allow Connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop.

Thanks very much for you assistance.

No point splitting as your answer came AFTER my original post.  Additionally, you offered no follow up.
