VNC

Just installed UltraVNC 1.0.8.2.

From the command line you can type in

winvnc -connect the.server.to.connect.to

and you'll basically be initiating a session from the server service.

Appears to NOT work with XP Home.  Is this the case?  Anyway to have a remote session with XP Home?

firewall blocking your app?

vnc is installed on this home xp right?

if you haven't installed anything on the home xp, it wont work.

it would if you use gencontrol.exe. you can find that online

gencontrol only works with XP Pro.

Yes... I installed VNC and firewall off didn't help.

well then you're stuck with either using remote assistance or going in for other software like logmein

best to have UVNC setup as a service and this can be done during install, if you have all 4 boxes ticked during one of the install windows.  you must then set a link password on the Admin Config screen, once this has been accepted, you should have a teal icon with a little eye in it, in the system tray, hover over and it will confirm its local IP address.

you will then need to set your router to have a forwarding rule, so when you connect to the router remotely with VNC (on default port 5900), it knows to push the request to your local system IP.  Then you should have it working.
