It's probably easier to just change the hotkey for switching between windows within Gnome2 to something that doesn't involve "special keys", then uncheck the Pass special keys directly to server checkbox. That way, you can alt-tab and it will ALWAYS (regardless of focus) work on the XP box, and your reassigned hotkey will switch between windows in ...

When in service mode, you should have a task-bar icon: Right click over the task-bar icon; Select "Options..."; If UAC is active, select yes; From the window presented, access the first tab "Connections"; Click on Configure...; Set your VNC Server password, repeat the password and press ok; You're set, you should now be able to ...

I don't know about any hotkey for escaping nor way to define it at RealVNC Viewer. I would really love to know. Meanwhile, I use two workarounds for this: Pressing some hotkey that is defined (say Ctrl+Shift+E for Windows Explorer) for a local program (on the computer running VNC Client), as long as they are prioritized by RealVNC Viewer. This ...

In Windows 10, right click on the shortcut to launch your viewer. Go to properties, click the compatibility tab, click "Change high DPI settings", under High DPI scaling override, check "Override high DPI scaling behavior" and set the drop down to "Application".

Based on this description, it's simply a virtual driver that mirrors the operation of a physical device. It's basically installed as a driver for a virtual graphics card. This means it gets immediate notification of all display updates, allowing the VNC server to react quicker and use less CPU. A regular display adapter doesn't suffice because you aren't ...

Open ~/.vnc/xstartup Change the vncconfig line to include SendPrimary=0 (e.g. vncconfig SendPrimary=0 –nowin &) Restart your VNC sessions How it works: vncconfig is a program that manages shared functionality between the x11 server and your VNC session, most notably shared clipboard functionality. Without this running in the background, you cannot ...

I fixed this by disabling the "send special characters" setting in Real VNC's advanced settings. I use OSX, so now I can command+tab to switch to a different app.

Two solutions: 1) If you feel that there is no security concern (both pcs on a well-protected LAN), then you can simply disable password on the server, just leave the field empty. 2) If instead you wish to leave some security in place, you can save session information from the F8 menu or the menu in the top bar. Make sure that you include your password, ...

Connecting via RealVNC cloud does not necessarily mean that the traffic is routed via the internet - If the machines are on the same network it should automatically figure this out and route the data locally. If you go to connection information in the viewer you can tell if it's falling back to relaying via cloud servers because it will say something like "...

The installation of RealVNC should have installed a system service named "VNC Server". Redo the installation if you cannot find this service in the Services applet. If the service is already there, verify that its Startup type is "Automatic" (set it if not already). Start it if not already started. You probably have already signed-in using your RealVNC ...

Had the same issue using a laptop and an external monitor since the laptop screen is small and high-res. RealVNC was constantly trying to scale no matter what I did or would take on a very small size w/respect to the larger monitor (related to the laptop screen size I expect) when scaling was disabled. I worked around the issue by enabling the external ...

Short answer: use another viewer... I had about the same problem you are facing. I am using a laptop and an external monitor. Since the laptop screen is small and high-res, I use the windows scaling option only on it. But RealVNC applies this "correction" even when using the external monitor. If I set it up to 100% scaling (session resolution being the same ...

Assuming RealVNC is not supported on the platform you are using (which is my case with arm64 Arch) I found the following solution. As root, edit the config file in /root/.vnc/config.d/vncserver-x11 Insert the following at the bottom of the file Authentication=VncAuth Encryption=AlwaysOff Password=e0fd0472492935da Restart RealVNC (or just reboot) Change ...

Using RealVNC As user rodrunner suggested in the comments, one way to get the VNC connection going is by using RealVNC's vncviewer. Make sure to uninstall TigerVNC or any other VNC implementations before proceeding. The package of RealVNC viewer is currently in AUR, you can install it via aura: sudo aura -A realvnc-vnc-viewer Assuming your Raspberry Pi'...

I'm not sure what you mean by locked, but I can log onto a remote computer via Teamviewer as long as I have the p/w. It may be a config on the remote PC that only allows viewing. Teamviewer has a View and Show option (which I have never used) as opposed to full access that may be your issue.

The authentication mechanism depends on the version of VNC Server that you are using. From Authenticating connections to VNC Server: By default, users must authenticate in order to connect to VNC Server. Note this is not the same as logging on to the host computer (though the same credentials may be used for both). By default: • VNC Server (...

First you should try to access it from inside your local network, if it works (probrably will) it means it is something with your router. Did you created the VirtualServer correctly? As far as i know the connections port and the java viewer port shall be different from each other. The java port is used to provide a java viewer client on browsers. Try it

Depends on what you mean by 'using'. If you want multiple users to remotely use the same computer, each have their own screen/keyboard/mouse control, and they don't need to see what each other is doing, then x2go and NX are much better tools for the job. I routinely use them to do even 3D CAD drawings over LAN; VNC would be far too sluggish and bandwidth ...

If your monitor is hooked up via DisplayPort or HDMI then when you turn it off the computer sees it as "disconnected", as if you pulled the cord out from between them. For more info on that, check out this other SU question: Turning DisplayPort monitor off disables monitor completely Since the display is disconnected, Windows and/or your display driver ...

Do not know how to do this when using Windows, but when you use Unix-like OS-es, it is possible to create vnc password file, execute % vncpasswd ~/.vncpassword, enter password, that you use to connect to vnc server, after it is possible to connect "automatically" using % vncviewer -passwd ~/.vncpassword user@X.X.X.X:X without password request.

You need to enable Wake On Lan on your Windows 7 laptop. This will ensure that when it receives a network connection request from your Mac that it will wake up and accept the connection. It's worth noting that WoL doesn't work if your Windows 7 laptop is on wireless, it needs to be a wired connection. Assuming you want to do that, then this document ...

Assuming this fails after you've also tried enabling 5800 and 5900 UDP, you should next define the names of the executables as part of the target XP's firewall profile. If that still fails, you need to ensure Memory Exeuction Prevenetion is also disabled in the target XP's box. Also enable FWQ logging at the target XP system to capture successfula nd ...

If you have set the server to VNC authentication and are being prompted for a username the chances are you have configured the extended VNC authentication for the Admin or ViewOnly account. You can either leave the username blank and just enter your vnc password, or if you don't want the extended authentication, from the Server's options dialog, select the "...

I have narrowed this down to the screen going to sleep (and of course, the computer going to sleep.) If you just enable the screen saver and disable both the screen and computer sleep it works. I posted this on Apple's forum but they haven't done a thing about it. I even tried installing TeamViewer but I get same results. I can wake up my mac mini when I ...
