Odd VNC Issue
I have reimaged most of our classroom computers remotely this weekend. The new image works well on all of the computer, except for one. This machine is the same specifications as the rest, except it has an upgraded video card.
For some reason, on this one system, TightVNC will not allow any keyboard input remotely. Since the school is closed for the holidays, I do not know if the system is allowing physical keyboard input or not. Remote desktop allows normal keyboard input.
Any ideas on things to try? I have re-sent the machine image three times now, reinstalled the video drivers, reinstalled TightVNC, and checked device manager (no issues). The event log shows no errors.
what spec is the machine ( including video / graphics card ) ?
What version of tight vnc are you using ?
Latest version of vnc and the video card drivers ?
Are there any settings in tight vnc you can alter to allow it to use the keyboard?
The machine is 2.4GHz (Celeron), 1gb RAM, 80GB hard drive, Windows XP Professional. The video card is EVGA 7300 GS.

I have not found any settings about keyboard use in TightVNC. I did check and I am not in "view only" mode.
Have you tried another distribution of VNC like RealVNC?
