    VNC no longer working...

    I've been using xvnc for years without any problems, today it's suddenly not listing any workstations, and when starting it up, I get the message "Sorry - No Windows NT, 2k, XP Workstations found at the moment."

    I also use NEWT Freeware, and that's not working either...

    I've not made any changes recently, and checked things I can think of, but can't work out what's wrong...

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Workstations: XP Pro
    Server: Windows 2008

    Edit: Just noticed I can't browse the Entire Network either...

    Have you tried using gencontrol? Never fails me and needs only a server install, no clients.
    We also use visionapp remote desktop and occasionally real VNC. But i try and stick to the gencontrol.

    Hiya,

    Thanks for the response... The problem is more serious than first thought, so doing some digging...

    (It won't browse the network as Administrator even on the DC! nightmare) Thinking it's a DNS issue at this stage...

    You tried using nslookup to test your DNS?

    Yep, just rebooted the DCs - it's resolving, still saying server: unknown

    Not given up yet though...
