Ok so I (Windows Vista) and the other computer (XP) both have Real VNC installed and we are attempting to connect. When I try to connect from the Vista to XP it tells me that "No Password configured for VNC Auth"

I already set up the Password on Real VNC Config tool. But that doesn't seem to help out.

When I try to connect from the XP to Vista it says that the connection has been interrupted unexpectedly (I suspect compatibility error).

Any thoughts? I'm still digging around trying stuff.

remote desktop doesnt need VNC. VNC needs VNC.

remote desktop needs remote desktop enabled.

I prefer Remote Desktop to VNC. Its better with little bandwith. Wherever i work i always try to remote desktop my home PC from work for privacy and managing downloads.

In your VNC settings did you select "VNC password" as authentication and not like "Windows password" or the likes?

Else try apply the password again in the VNC server instance.

I can't see the program now at school but the thing I remember is it giving me an option of VNC auth or no auth and at first I put no auth but it told me no auh was set up so I couldn't connect, and when I set up a auth that didn't work either.

Try Logmein. It is idiot proof and very simple (if not a bit slow, but I've never used another remote desktop program so I can't compare it)

Once I get remote desktop reliably working I'm going to start working on getting this computer I have doing nothing and start using it to host a server.

I'd vote for logmein as well. Regarding it being slow, it depends on your connection. At work, we have fairly ****ty bandwidth so if I use it during the day, it's kind of slow. After hours though when I'm the only one around, it's nice and fast (connecting back to home btw, not connecting to other computers in the office).

Forwarded ports for connecting over the internet (though since I'm connecting over our LAN I guess it works the same way). Didn't work though. I'm reading the documentation, I got to get this **** working.

Wrong, those were always enabled on both sides. I got it to work finally, from the Vista computer to the XP computer, but I've yet to be able to do the opposite, never the less, it's awesome. If I can do Vista to XP and XP to XP I'm happy.

With Vista and 7 RD is disabled by default, so not wrong you just didn't tell us you had enabled it :) XP however it's enabled by default.

Few things to look at tho,

Vista ships with a newer version of RD you updated the XP version?
you using anything like Peerblock or Peer guardian on the vista machine?
Any firewalls running on either?

if the XP machine is the server, why do you need RD to the vista machine, just hide the XP machine under your bed, roof and leave it. set the BIOS to turn the machine on in the morning, (and use WOL for them nice crashes) and use Shutdown /s to turn it off if you need to via RD from the Vista machine. (That is if it's not running 24/7)

Update


I'm working on my computers right now, setting up Real VNC between the two and clearing out my HDD on my Dell for my fathers or my use. I also got my hands on a 189GB External HDD that I can use for all the server resources so that I will not have to set it up again if I swap computers.

Uninstalling all my games except Garrys Mod and a few others I want to have just in case.

Planning on doing a Garrys Mod Dedi server and a Minecraft Dedi server (Depending on what I want, I may just run one at a time).

So instead of making a new thread I decided to bump this up to give you progress report.

I have the server running off a Dell XP Pro machine by itself. It has steam installed but no steam games (besides what the server software that installed) and it is never opened or running. I runt he server like normal and try to connect and I get two errors:

If I try to connect through external IP, I time out.
If I try to connect through internal IP, I get the error "Account Used Elsewhere: This Steam Account has been used to log in from another computer. To continue using Steam, you need to login again." And I am not able to play any other games.

I tried putting the server machine into DMZ, I've forwarded the ports needed "27014-27050" TCP "4380" UDP. Still no work.

if the vista machine isn't Ultimate or Professional, it does not allow RDP connections to that machine ( Microsoft deems you not worthy of needing it ).
