Create a Desktop Icon for Reverse Connection

Postby Fred » 2004-05-04 00:37

is it possible to have an option to create a Desktop Icon for Reverse Connection during Setup Process, i.e. an advance setting button from setup to check an option to create desktop icon, custom setting, ....etc ?


Thanks
Fred
 

Create a Desktop Icon for Reverse Connection

Yes, I agree!
Can we have an executable just like the winvnc.exe to launch the reverse connect?
Also would need it to have a check box or something to call the ecryption plugin. That would be great.
Maybe also hold previous entries that are entered in the add new client box.

Indeed, reverse connections are not that easy and have to be made
be the user that need support.

If i made something like it, it will be a dedicated revers server
without registry setting and password.
All options are " branded in the exe" by a server creator, the user only
get one button, connect... and even for some of them that would be difficult.

It can have an advance option button from the setup script to enter the reverse server ip/dns name, since it need no password for the viewer to listen therefore, it just create a shortcut icon on the desktop with "winvnc -connet <entered viewer address>"

Thanks

Will not work.
winvnc -connect require the winvnc is already running

You need to create a bat file that start
winvnc.exe
Sleep
winvnc.exe -connect %.......

But some people don't want the incoming connect open,
some users are realy paranoid that the boss is spying on
them.

Even this causes a problem.
I need to start the winvnc.exe outside of the batch file. I have my setup program start it, then call a batch file like this:

Doze 5
winvnc.exe -connect %.......

For some reason the winvnc.exe process in the same batch as the connect, even with the sleep or doze command seems to hang the batch file. It's like winvnc.exe doesn't return a finished starting up command or something.
Not complaining, just not sure why it doesn't play nice in the same batch file.

oh yeah,
I would love that feature.
Right now, I usually get them on the phone, telling them:
winvnc start
enter any pass and then ok
add new client (thats the hard part, to get a simple user to find the symbol)

It would be good, If I could even "produce" an exe.
which means, I can embed already the address.

I have a dyndns address, which the user can use.

Kind Regards

Create a batch file to call the add new client command and put the icon on the desktop. Have them start the server like you normally due then have them click this batch file:

winvnc.exe -connect

This makes that box popup. Make sure the batch file is in the ultra directory. 8)

not that easy.
usually i send them the stuff first.
so I have no access to the computer.
Thats why one .exe which comes in a mail for them would be great :-)

I can't create a windows shortcut that will execute:
winvnc -connect 192.192.192.0
Do you mean create a batch file? I've done that. I would like a windows icon to call the -connect 192.192.192.0

ShortCut

Postby Fred » 2004-05-09 04:27

O, all my client is running winvnc at startup therefore, it need only a shotcut on the desktop to run "winvnc -connect <support.call.com> "


thanks

I'm not sure how you can create a shortcut on the desktop that will call that command.
You can create a shortcut to winvnc.exe but how are you running a shortcut with the -connect switch? If you do that it gives me an error about not being able to find the program.
I can only get it to work in a batch file.
Can you put exactly how you are setting the icon up?
