UVNC Server randomly stops connecting to repeater

Postby Unit_1000 » 2017-09-07 02:10

Hello,
I'v been using UVNC Server with the repeater (and the -autoconnect option) for about a year now with about a dozen computers using vers 1.2.1.2 and 1.2.1.5
On about half of these computers, UVNC Server will randomly stop connecting to the repeater and I can't really detect any pattern or trigger that causes it to stop. Sometimes it works for days or weeks.
Once I get back in front of a failed UVNC Server machine, I can't find anything wrong. Nothing is hung. UVNC is there and working. All it takes is STOP service / START service and its working again for a random amount of time.

It's done this on Win7 & Win8.1 I only have it running on 1 Win 10 machine and it seems to working ok.

Anyone have some troubleshooting tips for this?
Thanks,

I have exactly the same problem even happens using 1.2.1.7 and 1.2.1.6, not all clients lose the connection, seems to be Windows 10 clients more often than Windows 7, as you said you need to go to the client and stop and start the service and it works again for a while (not very convenient as I am often trying to connect from an office miles away). Has anyone found the answer to this problem?

I am having this problem too even on the latest version of VNC 1.2.1.7 and the latest build (1400) repeater using -autoreconnect in the .ini, as the OP said when you stop the service and start it again on the remote machine and connects to the repeater again for a while but then sometimes loses the connection after a random amount of time (this is a pain as there is not always someone at the machine(s) to do this for me, so kind of defeats the object of VNC).

Has anyone figured out how to stop this yet?
