Remote access with VNC

I have a Windows 2003 server and all pof the clients are running VNC Viewer 4.1.1 so that we can VPN into thier systems for support and then we use VNC Viewer to go to the specific computer desktop.  All the current clients have XP Pro and I am installing a Win 7 Pro client.  This version of VNC Viewer does not allow access to the Win 7 computer.  Any suggestions on how to get access?

I recommend UltraVNC

This should help you with VNC Viewer:

try teamviewer.com
install TeamViewer Host on your win7 machine and then connect whenever you want. runs on port 80 so no firewall changes needed

Do I have to install either of these on all the computers or just the Win7?
Keep up with what's happening at Experts Exchange!

Both would be the same as how you use VNC Viewer now.  Try the link first, its talking about Vista, but is a workaround for VNC Viewer.
i have only have limited success with anything other than ultra VNC on wnidows 7. You can however connect to it using real vnc client. So it is only the windows 7 machine that need the ultra vnc server installed
Use remote assistance.

You can install VNC Personal Edition, which supports Windows 7... .The only thing is it's a $30.00 license fee for the personal edition...

If you just have one Windows 7 box for now, I would try to keep it under one platform for remote support.

You can still run the free version on all your other machines, and of course the personal edition on the Windows 7 Box.

That would at least buy you the time to maintain one remote control solution, until you so decide to start upgrading your other nodes to Windows 7.
