RE: Connection Problem with 4.1.2 and "Too Many Security Failures"

Hi Don,

"Too many security failures" means that too many failed authentication
attempts were made and so the server will not accept further attempts for a
short while (initially ten seconds).  After this period has elapsed, you'll
be permitted another attempt to log in, and if that fails then the server
won't accept further attempts for another twenty seconds and so-on.

Note that if you attempt to connect to a server from separate viewer
computers, all of which are behind the same NAT router, blacklisting will
apply to all those computers, or to none of them.

"Connection timed out" is most normally associated with computers being
switched off, or behind a firewall.

Request - Connection logging

Hello!

Must say that I love VNC; handiest program ever! But I've just recently come
across an idea that could be helpful. I've just had some random attempt to
VNC me.I asked the one person who does know the password and it wasn't him.
Lost as to who it could be (and how the bloody hell he knows what the
password is) and considering that I thought it was one of my friends (didn't
pay attention to the IP address) I would like to suggest that connection
logging be an option in an upcoming version of RealVNC. Just something
simple like recording the IP address, time, denied/accepted, port and
anything else useful into a .txt file.

Thanks in advance!

Jimmy.

There is logging already. VNC server logs in to windows application log.

ControlPanel/Administrative Tools/Event Viewer.
Look in application logs for WinVNC.

error 10061

Hello,

As many other people apparently, i have the 10061 problem. But I tried
everything, and get no result.

I'm using version 4.1.2, on both viewer and server side.

The symptoms are

When I try to connect internally (using the private 10.20.7.1 address of the
server), I can connect, no problem.

When I try to connect (still using a computer on the network), by typing the
public ip address (or the dyndns address), I got the "connection refused
(10061)" error.

When I try to connect from a distant computer, by typing the public ip
address (or the dyndns address), I got the "connection refused (10061)"
error.

When I try to connect to the server, from the server, using it's public ip
address, same error.

I can connect to other servers I got, that runs realvnc (on another
network), with exactly the same settings than this faulty server.

I've read on the net everything I could find to solve the problem, and I
checked the following points :

-          My firewall is disabled, all ports are opened. I also tried to

Using VNC & RemoteDesktop simulatneously

Dear All

    I'm having two networks N1 and N2 and both are interconnected over 
internet.
Two system X & Y are  connected to N1 and both are accessible with VNC to 
the system A which in N2.
System Y is WindowsXP Professional and RemoteDesktop feature is enabled.
System X is connected to System Y using RemoteDesktop.
When I tried to connect to Y from A using VNC, the other running 
RemoteDesktop session is getting disconnected with message
('The Remote session was disconnected because another user has connected to 
the session") and vice versa.
If both systems are trying to connect using VNC,it's perfectly alright.
Can't we simultaneously connect to one system with both VNC & RemoteDesktop 
feature?
What are the changes I need to do so that both can work simultaneously?

Thanks in advance.

RE: Using VNC & RemoteDesktop simulatneously

I haven't been able to get RDC and VNC to live happily on the same box.

It seems to be one or the other.

BTW: I PREFER VNC, but can't get it to work on a 64bit platform. Any
word on 64 bit VNC????

Can you elaborate on "can't get it to work"?
