Installed 126.96.36.199 on a Win7 laptop (client) and an XP system (server). I've established what port it's listening on (5901). I've had a number of different failure modes:
* One time it gave an error something like "service running as application" or something like that -- only saw it once.
* Frequently it immediately rejects the connection, "Your connection has been rejected."
* Other times it connects successfully, and prompts me for the VNC password, but never accepts the password. ("VNC authentication failed!") I see no pattern behind rejections vs. password failures.
* I've tried the browser (http://host:5801
) and I get the same results with IE. In Firefox I can't enter the password.
When I installed the server, the Admin config already showed a VNC password. I don't know what it was. I replaced it with a password that happened to be shorter. When the password failed, I went back to check the Admin panel, and the password had been reset to an 8-char length. I set it to my shorter password (several times) and it keeps resetting to 8 chars. What password is it changing it to? Or is it just displaying 8 splats even if I enter a shorter password? Why can't I get it to accept my password??
The fact that my connections aren't consistent makes me wonder what's going on. These two systems are on a LAN.
