Hi there!

I've tried to launch repeater_SSL.exe from that zip ALL SC III (repeater + test files) but get the error:

Is there a way to fix it?

Thank you!

P.S. I use Windows 8.1 x64 with installed MS Visual C++ 2005 - 2015 Redistributable packages.

SSL is an old experiment.
Discontinued, src is on the same page.

Well, could you tell me please then what's the best way to secure connection? Still use special plugin (MSRC4Plugin.dsm)?

The SSL experiment had a security issue.
To be able to route, the repeater must decrypt and encrypt again.

Using the plugins your data is encrypted between serevr and viewer, the router can only route packages, but can't read the content.

Yes, encryption plugins are more secure...

Could you tell please where can I find the recent secure plugins for the recent UltraVNC pack (Server, viewer, Repater)?

I've downloaded plugin SecureVNCPlugin64.dsm (and other stuff) from here but during connection with this plugin I got the warning that means that my connection is not secured:

Is there a way how to fix it?

I user recent UltraVNC pack btw.

Thank you!

You get this popup when
*viewer has an encryption plugin activated
*server has no encryption plugin

Check if the server has encryption activated.

Yeah, I've not installed the plugin on server side before. Now I've it installed on both sides and.... And when I'm trying to connect I get this error:

I've also generated two pairs of keys (20171016_Server_ClientAuth.pubkey and 20171016_Viewer_ClientAuth.pkey) on either on sewrver and viewer side.

Oh god... Is there a way to make it finally work?... :(

1) just install plugin
2) goto properties and select plugin and [v] Use
3) restart server
* this use the standard vnc passwd as authentication, no need to configure anything

If you need a longer passwd, configure the plugin to use a passphraze ( long password)
if you are realy paranoid, you can create a 1024bit encryption key
In this case you manual need to copy the viewer key in the same folder as the viewer exe.
You create the key pair on the server and copy the viewer key on the viewer pc...

In your case 20171016_Server_ClientAuth.pubkey server pc in same folder as winvnc
20171016_Viewer_ClientAuth.pkey on viewer pc in same folder as vncviewer



You always can erase ultravnc.ini, then a new config file with defaults is created when you start winvnc.exe
