We have VNC installed on all our classroom comps, is it possible to have a preview of all these screens at the same.
As VNC can work in the web browser has anyone managed to create a set up where a thumbnail of all the comps in the class are shown?
I'm looking for a free way to do it, we have netop in some rooms but the budget wont stretch to all rooms at the min.
Is there anything that is more flexible that would allow you to see all screens at the same time is a net op esq fashion?Originally Posted by Geoff
Yes just increase how many remote screens appear on screen at once.
I'm slighty concerned about this progs sp2 issues, and the fact that I had it working on a W2K but then the next day it couldnt detect any comps.
For VNC to work on XP SP2, you need to open TCP port 5900. This can easily be done using Group Policy to affect all required computers.
Hes refering to the fact that it has trouble detecting computers through a discover method the program uses. I found that is a problem but you just have to make up a list of your rooms and computers and let DNS do the rest finding them.
Ah, the XP connection limit...?
Yes its something along those lines
If you manually make your lists though it works fine. Bit of a pain but you only need do it once and you can use a script or some excel trickery to help you build your lists if you ahve a sensible naming scheme.But anyway, to the point, Microsoft have recently imposed limitations to the amount of half opened outbound connections a program can make in their latest service pack for Windows XP: SP2. If you are interested in the details then look here: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/pro.../sp2netwk.mspx then scroll to the TCP/IP section and read the section titled "Limited number of simultaneous incomplete outbound TCP connection attempts".
DHCP screws up VNCon - it messes with the comp names etc. To solve that you need static or reserved IP's.
@mark - Why on earth is that? Is your DHCP scope applying DNS suffixes? You should not need that under 2K/XP as the domain suffixe is configured automatically when the domain membership changes. I only ever hand out IP lease, gateway and DNS servers nowadays. Even DNS can be overridden by GP, but I suppose you need an initial setting so PC can connect to DC.
were not painting a very good picture of VNCon here really are we
@ajb - it's something I saw in a forum and it does work for me. maybe VNCon caches the DNS names so causing the problem. You can't search by name I think. And computers are listable/ groupable by IP address. Not much use in a DHCP environment.
I having troublewith authenticing with machines which i do a remote install to
Anyone had this problem?
