The information comes from the official site of SecureVNC, and also from the posts of this forum.rsutton wrote:Where were you able to find this information?
For the "Generate Client Authentication Key", the SecureVNC official site has this explanation:rsutton wrote:Could you also explain how to use the advanced options of using the Client & Server Generation buttons?
SecureVNC official site wrote:In the configuration dialog on the server, you have the option to generate client authentication keys. The server should have the public key (named *_ClientAuth.pubkey), and the viewer should have the private key (named *_ClientAuth.pkey). By cryptographically signing the communication, this prevents an active man-in-the-middle attack, since the handshake cannot be tampered with without invalidating the signature. This is ideal for remote support / single click situations, since the server can be publicly distributed with the public key for authentication. The viewer's private key must remain protected.
It just opens the browser, and goto the SecureVNC official site.rsutton wrote:what does the Website button do?

Looks like the Pass Phrase is not properly configured.
Please try to enter the Pass Phrase at server again.
You must; at server's Admin Properties;
- check the "use" DSMplugin box,
- Select the "SecureVNCPlugin.dsm" (please use version 22.214.171.124)
- click the "Config." button to goto the Config Window, and then enter the Pass Phrase here.
Don't enter the Pass Phrase at the Admin Properties' VNC password column, which is for the classic VNC password only
That is true, and sorry my previous statement "Don't enter the Pass Phrase at the Admin Properties' VNC password column" is not so clear. What I mean is you must enter your Pass Phrase (128 characters max.) at the SecureVNC Plugin config. window.sandman42 wrote:1) If I don't set any "normal password", I can go on because UltraVNC Says "WARNING: Running WinVNC without setting a passowrd is a dangerous secuity risk! Until you set a password, WinVNC will not accept incoming connection"
Is it the result of disabling the viewer input by mistake?sandman42 wrote:2) If I set a password, my passphrase works, but the system is view only.
You did it correctly. The generated keys: *.pkey is supposed put on the viewer machine, and the *.pubkey should be put on the server machine.rsutton wrote:It really doesn't say how to use the 'Client Generation' button. I tried it anyway and it generated two keys: a *.pkey and a *.pubkey. What are we supposed to do with those keys? I tried copying the *.pkey to the viewers machine in the vnc directory, but that didn't seem to work.
Sorry but I'm not understanding your question .... why have 'Client Generation' button on the viewer's option menu .....rsutton wrote:why have the 'Client Generation' button on the viewer's option menu?
I don't have problem when clicking the Website button on the server. I'm using Win XP Pro Sp2 & FireFox as default browser.rsutton wrote:@redge,
After further testing I have found that on the viewer I can press the SecureVNCPlubin's Website button and it does open up Adam's web site.
However, I get nothing when I press the Website button on the server running as an installed service on XP.

Please check these settings:
1. The server Admin. Properties -- the check box of "Disable Viewers Input"
