UltraVNC - TreeView

Postby Panarchy » 2009-05-05 01:16

Hello

UltraVNC with a TreeView would be great, one that stores .vnc files.

VNC Address Book is good, but you can't export all your settings (and you can't drag and drop .VNC files into it)

So please suggest something else, or add the feature to UltraVNC.

Thanks in advance,

Before this feature is available, my workaround is embedding all my .vnc files into a MS WORD table, and use it as my .vnc address book.

To do this just simply drag and drop the .VNC files into the WORD file, and you can export back any of them as individal file.

I hate to suggest it, but what about Windows Explorer?

Create your tree of folders somewhere, put your .vnc files in there and view it as normal with Explorer.

This is my original approach.

Somehow I want to have some note/remark/comment to the saved .vnc files, and I consider putting them into a WORD table is more convenient. Just my personal preference.

I see the advantages in both approaches.

Word is good, but perhaps I should use that approach then export it to a website :P

Ah... the good thing about the "VNC Address Book" is that you can very easily create and edit .vnc files.

VNC Address Book would be pretty much perfect, if only I could export my list. I currently export the .VNC files into a folder.

Another feature missing from that program is I that only passwords and IP Addresses/DNS can be embedded within the VNC file.
I need to embed Usernames as well.

Any ideas how I can do this?

Thanks in advance for any advice,

That's good. This is not possible with the .vnc files embedded in a Word doc. I must move it to a normal folder, edit it, and then copy it back to the Word doc.

That's the problem of vncviewer. At this moment the only possible way is to use a batch script, like:
vncviewer.exe /connect xx.xx.xx.xx:5900 /user USERID /password PASSWORD

But this exploses the user_name & password as they are in plain text

That gives me an idea.

Would it be possible, since I already have an encrypted password embedded within a .vnc file, to use VNCviewer.exe or some other executable to launch the .VNC files, in the VNCviewer window with a UserName?

Please tell me if this would be possible.

Thanks in advance,

No! The encrypted password in the .vnc file is the classic VNC password.

To use both User ID & Password, then you are using the MS Logon feature. The vncviewer will not use the native VNC password in this situation.

Is there a VNC program which saves .VNC files which can?

(then I can open the .VNC file in UltraVNC)

(of if it's free, then use the other VNC program... Windows please)

Please tell me if there is.

Thanks in advance,

Panarchy

PS: Or even a plugin for UltraVNC?

I ended up converting that 'script' to C++ and compiling it with the icon. Does make the size 300KB or there abouts, when the .vnc files are under 1KB... but all well.

Please send me a PM once this feature is added to the GUI.

Thanks in advance,
