VPN-less Remote Control via VNC Part2 

Part1 Part2 Part3 Part4
Setup VNC Repeater machine:
Install UltraVNC on your VNC Repeater machine. In the properties of the server icon in
the system tray, be sure to check on the Allow Loopback Connections option (see
above graphic).

In the directory where you installed UltraVNC, you will find vnc_repeater.exe.

On your VNC Repeater machine, start the repeater program by running at a command
prompt:
"(path)\vnc_repeater.exe" 5901

Configure public router:
On your router, forward port 5901 to your VNC Repeater machine

ON REMOTE MACHINE:

VNCViewer

Now run VNCViewer.exe:



Enter the local IP address (or DNS name) of the machine you want to control

Check on the Proxy Repeater check box, and enter the public address assigned to your VNC
Repeater (or router from which you are forwarding port 5901)

Press the Options... button to specify your connection options. I've found the best remote control
settings to be checking on the Use 8-bit color and specify Hextile encoding method.
