First try if you can connect when server and viewer run on the same PC
1) copy 2 exe vncviewer and winvnc.exe on a usb stick
(only 2 files)
2) Run winvnc.exe from the usb stick
This open the properties to set the password ( ultravnc.ini is created on first run, in the same folder as winvnc.exe, in this case the usb stick)
Set passwd ( make sure to set a different for full and view only)
[v] Allow loopback ( needed to be able to connect server and viewer on the same pc)
3) Run on the same PC vncviewer.exe from the usb stick
connect to localhost ( 127.0.0.1)
This need to work, else all other tests fail.
If this works, the effect is a mirror, unless you have a dual monitor system and can place the viewer on the seond screen.
Anyway, it's only needed to see if you connect and get some image.
Ideal, use a second usb with the vncviewer.exe on.
Plug this usb in your second PC
host= ip address pc running server
(else copy the viewer to the desktop)
** The reason for using a usb stick: If you download a zip and extracted the exe from the zip insite the iexplorer, Vista/win7 mark this file as unsecure and fail to set some permissions. Copy to usb FAT32, remove this bit.
If you get it working from the usb sticks, just overwrite the winvnc.exe and ultravnc.ini in program files with the files from the stick.
