    Anyone had problems creating a connection?

    My customer can connect to me and I can accept the connection, but then after about 2 seconds I get thrown off...

    (I'm on XP)

    Was wondering if it's some kind of firewall issue...
    He's ammended it so that his firewall allows incomming connections...

    ...do you know if we need to be more speciic than that - like add the ultravnc via a port or something...

    Cheers

    Vista is a real pain with Vnc, make sure he doesnt have aero running, it messes everything up. Obviously no problem with the firewall or there would be no connection in the first place.

    Do you have to use ultraVNC? RealVNC seems to be ok with Vista. 8)

    Hi Sparky - just noticed this....are you referring to the licensed version...it's just that on the site it claims the free one's not compatible with Vista, but the licenced ones are...

    The free one works for me, perhaps disable the firewall on the PC you are connecting to as a test?

    Hey Leehaa,

    I believe that UltraVNC 1.0.4 RC3 has some support for Vista, I got it to work at work. However its not very stable and sometimes the UAC in vista screws it up.

    Steve could you expand on this please, I am at a loss to understand how a graphics feature can interfere with remote access?

    thanks!

    I think what he means is when the user access another users computer using vnc, do the the desktop graphics of vista, vnc has issues displaying the desktop properly. I had this issue with earlier versions of vnc.
