Constant freeze up

Postby brbubba » 2004-07-13 03:24

Ever since upgrading from RC11 to RC18 I get constant freeze ups. Essentially the freezes occur when I am on the viewer and for one reason or another the connection dies or gets screwed up. When I try to reconnect it seems ok, but gets stuck on "Negotiate Protocol Version" and the viewer locks up and I have to force it to quit.

I am using Win2k for the server side, running as a service. Win2k and XP on the viewer side. I am also using the MSRC4plugin with a 128 bit key.

At this point I am tempted to downgrade to RC11. I have tried a complete reinstall and just about everything else I can think of.

Thanks in advance and sorry if this was already covered elsewhere in the forum.

I should also add that when the freeze up happens and I get home the taskbar icon is highlighted as if someone if someone is connected. Obviously there is no one connected, but somehow it won't disconnect itself even though the viewer is no longer connected.

i am having the same problem... are you using the msrc4 plugin? when i attempt to connect again without the plugin enabled, it doesn't hang returns an error (expected)...

Yes I am using the MSRC4 plugin. It seems to have stopped happening now that I am logging in from a different computer. The computer I was using to log in had a flakey wireless connection so it would drop the signal a lot. I think this is what caused it, but VNC should still drop any old connections for new incoming ones, no?
