So I recently got a new computer running Windows 7, installed the latest version of TightVNC Server (not as a service, just a standalone app that runs on startup).
I'm logging in via an XP box, using the most recent version of the TightVNC client. The login process itself works smoothly, and I can use the computer remotely... for a while. After variable length of time (30 minutes to 2 hours, roughly), the VNC window stops updating, then closes as the computer reboots. Specifically, it drops a socket error message.
After the computer's rebooted, I can connect to the server, but after authentication, VNC freezes in the middle of the initial refresh, then disconnects as the server reboots again.
General advice or suggestions?
After restarting, it does display the 'Windows has encountered an error and had to restart, would you like to let MS know?' window; if I expand the 'More Info' thing on the bottom, I get:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.768.3 Locale ID: 1033
plus a bit more identification data that I just lost.
