... works like rudi magic.
If there is no 3rd party firewall installed or disabled temporarily, and Windows Firewall is also disabled temporarily, then everything happens super smooth.
vnchooks.dll, schooks.dll passses McAfee Enterprise Anti-Virus guard+scan, on Vista, and on XP,
but 'vnchooks.dll' causes extra warnings from firewall softwares, when it tries to create hook, i guess.
'uvnc_SC_GT.exe' after running, decompresses the 'UltraVnc_GT.exe' (uvGT
), which after connecting to gmail, tries to do local connection on local net with their local IPs for computers 1st (uses icmp, UDP packets as well).
but since i had restriction rules placed on such local connections,
so sc-gt tries to use the external internet ip to connect back to local computers, and connects.
it connects to google at port 5222, 80 and then also tries port 19302, 19295, 19294, etc.
it connects by usin my external internet ip, with random port (at different time) to the computer that is running this.
like Rudi said, uvnc srvr connects to uvGT using port 9999, and uvGT connects to uvnc viewer using port 5500.
on Vista, the UAC ( the
Univeral Annoying Champion
) didnt appear, it was executed from Admin account.
on Vista, a message from 'Windows Firewall' popped up and asked for user's permission to allow it, which i did allow, and 3rd party firewall also asked for permission on each component (uvnc srvr, viewer, uvGT, vnchook) when it ran.
uvGT on XP, once gave some warning about Vista's UAC ! i guess.
on Vista, crashed once, then uvnc viewer was still running, had to exit/close it.
on XP, after 'close', uvnc viewer was still running !
tried to make the same PC, a server once & then a viewer once, so that must have caused such remaining running instances, or a bug?
in neither case, the LED of encrypted tunnel, was not ON, was that bcuz i used same gmail on both side ?
each of this PC had its own Anti-Virus, Firewall installed. One is XP+SP3, another is Vista+SP2. both behind Wireless Router (NAT), DSL (with dynamic internet IP).
I felt its bit faster, than SC srvr & uvnc-Viewer connected via/through 'reflector' solution. Though initially cursor+screen Refresh response was slower, it picked up few moments later.
