Monitor selection in a multi-monitor-environment

Hello everybody,

I have several configurations with a mulit-monitor environment in WinXP (2 or 3 monitors). Now I'd like to stream the content of only selected monitors to another PC. So for example in the 3-monitor-environemtn stream only monitor 1+3 to the other PC.

I tested this with TightVNC and a dual-monitor-environment, but I could only stream the content of the whole desktop (monitor 1+2).  Is there a way to  select only one (or two) monitors from the multi-monitor-environment for streaming?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Regards, Markus

v1.3.9 server moves windows that are partially off-screen

Hello,
I have noticed that if any windows are positioned such that they are
partially located off the screen v1.3.9 server will move the windows
so they are within the boundary of the screen. In using v1.2.9
previously this did not happen. Does anyone know if this has been added
as a "feature" or if there is some command line switch or registry entry to
disable this action? The windows are actually moved on the machine running
the server not just displayed as moved in the viewer window. If the windows
are again moved partially off the screen in the viewer they will stay there,
but
disconnecting from the server and connecting again will change the position.

The machine running the server (as a service) is Win2KSp4.

Resizing viewer window

Hello,
In upgrading from v1.2.9 to v1.3.9 I have noticed a strange
change in the way the vncviewer window can be resized.
In v1.2.9 the maximum size of the vncviewer window would be
the full size of the desktop screen from the server. In v1.3.9 the
vncviewer window can be resized larger than the server screen
such that there is a black border around the screen.

I have noticed that minimizing the vncviewer window can cause 
the connection between server and viewer to lock-up, but resizing 
the vncviewer down does not cause this. In v1.2.9 it was easy to 
grab the window edge and size down the vncviewer window when
necessary, then drag it back to full size when needed. In v1.3.9
when dragging the window back to full size, it will extend beyond
the served screen.

Has anyone else noticed this behavior or determined any command
line switches, settings, or registry entries to limit the size of the 
vncviewer window to the size of the server screen?

Command line argument "sharearea"

Hello everybody,

as I got no answer to my last message about selecting single monitor within multi-monitor-environment, I found another possible solution ti fix this problem: The sharearea command line argument.

But unfortunately I arranged my monitors not in the normal way, but switched second and third one to the left. So this order results: 3 - 2 - 1 (from left to rigth).

No when I want to narrow down the server view to monitor 2+3 using the sharearea command line option, I theoretically would use it in this manner: 2560x1024-2560+0.

But the negativ x-value is not recognized by the system. Is there a way to set the share area to a negativ value? This option must be supported by thigthVNC, because I can pull the sharearea on the window manually to the rigth position using the mouse.

Every help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Regards, Markus

how to "hide" the tightvnc server gui from the client?


I need to be able to keep the tightvnc server gui (with some of my additions)
visible on the screen, but not have it displayed on the remote viewer. 

Somehow webex and gotomeeting can do this, but I have no idea how this
works?  Is there a special flag or anything you can use to keep a window
from being included in the RFP stream????

-- Thanks

setting Password for all users

Just wondering can you set the password so that who ever logs onto the machine it wont bring up the server properties asking you to enter a new password, but will just use the same password for any user.

You will have to set up TightVNC Server as a service: take a look at the online help.
