Yes just install vnc and register it as a service during installation, then turn of your windows and domain firewall in 2008 server.

Hi Santas,

So the VNC service is already part of the OS? Or do i need to Download and Install an after market version?
Sikhumbuzo NtsadaIT AdministrationCommented:
you must download vnc first, it is not part of the OS.
