I have a need to allow multiple users to view the same remote session on a Windows 2008 server. The server is cloud-based and is virtual. I have no physical access to it. I've tried several different combinations (Ultra VNC, Tight VNC, etc..) and tried to run as a service, but also as an application. It appears that installing via RDP somehow screws up how authentication is set up. I've tried various remedies in terms of setting the password after the install, including copying a registry key, also using a freeware tool called vncpwd.exe to no avail. In some variants of this I do get to a ctrl+alt-del login screen, but am thwarted by a cryptic UAC message that never allows me to login.
I'm not wedded to VNC, but I suspect that someone can walk me through setting this up properly.
Am looking for a "free" recipe to doing multiple viewers for same session. I am able to use web-based join.me, but it's not optimal. Running teamviewer on the server is not a "free" option.
