Re: Problems with XP

Hi William,
I tried to switch off "FUS" and Remote Desktop
support.
Still does not work ... :-(
Any ideas ?
Shall I use VNC 4 or an older version as 3.3.7 ?

RE: Pushing Out a new registry key - using fastpush

Just add something like these lines to the machine.ini file:

\registry\machine\software\orl\winvnc3
	AuthHosts = REG_SZ +/-/? theipaddressyouwant

They can go at the begining or the end of the file, doesn't matter.

  Beau

Kool.  Ok.  I got it working but I have one problem.  How do I get the AuthHosts registry entry to go over.  The
machine.ini file just seems to have everything below default.

The only other thing I can think of to check is that your "per-user"
settings are the same as your "per-machine" settings.  The "per-machine"
settings are used when no one is logged on or the workstation is locked. 
Use the "Show Default Properties" shortcut (assuming you are using 3.3.7)
to verify that the "per-machine" password and settings are correct.

> Shall I use VNC 4 or an older version as 3.3.7 ?

I've used both.  The version 4 beta seems stable to me, but verify that no
features you need to use are on the "not yet implemented" list.

changing resolution

Hi,

i had a look through the archives cause im sure this has been answered many
times but i couldn't find a solution. i am tring to change the size
(resolution) of the terminal, i tried changing the -geometry option in my
xstart and all i sucessfully changed was the size on the shell that is
initially opened in my terminal, the actual terminal size remains unchanged.

i tried creating a couple of different profiles in my xstart, not sure if
that is my problem. ive pasted my xstart below, both options '-name home' &
'-name other'  give the same screen size result

    [ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
    xsetroot -solid grey

    case "$VNCDESKTOP" in
    home)
            xterm -geometry 100x100+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
            startkde &
            ;;
    other)
            xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
            startkde &
            ;;
    esac

thanks

Is this an xterm question or a VNC question?  You seem to be asking about
shells and terminal sizes and your examples only mention xterm.

If you are confused and are asking how to change the size of VNC's desktop
(the "resolution" in a sense), then you need to do a man vncserver:

-geometry widthxheight
Specify the size of the desktop to be created. Default is 1024x768.

As an example

$ vncserver :2 -geometry 800x600

Listening Viewer and possibly XP

    I am unable to get VNC Servers to add me as a client when I'm running in
Listening Viewer mode on my XP machine.  I have had this option working in the
past, just last week actually, but no longer.  I normally shut down my
firewall before starting Listening Viewer.  I then obtain my internet IP
address from myipaddress.com and provide that to the person running VNC
Server.  On none of the 6 or so Servers (running various Windows OS) that I
have tried can they connect to me or even ping my internet IP.  I have
disabled Fast User Switching and the Welcome screen.  I have seen instructions
to disable Remote Desktop as well, but am not sure how.  But since other pc's
can not even ping my machine I'm not sure that is the problem
    Any help would be appreciated.

Server status

Hi,

I'm trying to write a web page that displays all the servers that can be
accessed by realVNC.  Is there anyway to check the status of a server so it
can be display whether or not the server is in use on the page?
