We have multiple devices that we connect to with ultravnc.  I was hoping to create a sinmple html file with links that would laund ultravnc with the host ip of each.  But each hyper link is defualting to my last entry.  For example:


<a href="javascript:LaunchApp()">Inbound KIOSK 1</a>
<script>
function LaunchApp() {
 if (!document.all) {
  alert ("Available only with Internet Explorer.");
  return;
 }
 var ws = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");
 ws.Exec("c:\\Program Files\\UltraVNC\\vncviewer.exe -connect 10.10.79.131");
}

</script>
</br>
<a href="javascript:LaunchApp()">Inbound KIOSK 2</a>
<script>
function LaunchApp() {
 if (!document.all) {
  alert ("Available only with Internet Explorer.");
  return;
 }
 var ws = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");
 ws.Exec("C:\\Program Files\\UltraVNC\\vncviewer.exe -connect 10.10.79.132");
}
</script>
</br>

when I click on the Inbound Kiosk 1 link it launches ultravnc but tries connecting to 10.10.79.132.  is there anyway of correcting this.  I have a dozen Kiosk I need to make entries for.

You have two functions with the same name.  Only one will be found.  Change the name of the second both in the function and in the link.  Maybe LaunchApp2() .
