How to install UltraVNC with remote desktop (RDP) ?
installing remotely via MS remote
desktop - set password??
install any VNC flavor by remote desktop Terminal Service
and prevent VNC default password not set
|1. I did a RDP connection to my server
(which is HEADLESS)
2. I installed ultravnc. At this point I was having all the problems as everybody else
3. With registry editor, I browsed to HKEY_LOCAL_HACHINE\SOFTWARE and then created some the"ORL\WinVNC3\Default" keys (which are case-sensitive and without quotes):
a) created a key named ORL
b) under ORL I created another key called WinVNC3
c) under WinVNC3 I created on last key called Default
4. I then proceeded to install VNC as a service through the start menu, and nothing else (don't fiddle with any more ultraVNC icons for the moment).
5. Download the vncpwd application which you can find at http://www.sysworksoft.net/products/vncpwd.html and unpack it somewhere you can use (or you might just keep it somewhere like c:\windows\system32
6. run vncpwd from the command prompt as follows:
(where <password> is ther password of your choise
7. Restart the computer. This is very, VERY important. Restarding the service didn't worked for me and I was still getting the "no password" error. Only after I restarted the server that things worked out.
|DO NOT connect to the local console with
RDP/TS! That is, DO NOT use mstsc /CONSOLE /V:server ! VNC
is not compatible with servers who "have suffered" RDP/TS
connect to local console.
I have no problems installing Ultravnc as service (and mirror driver) from remote desktop/TS - if I first populate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/ORL/WinVNC3 with the Password entry copied from another installation.
I have first installed Ultravnc as service on my local PC and configured default password. Then I export HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/ORL/WinVNC3 from regedit to a flat file. This file can be copied to the RDP/TS server and imported with regedit. Once this is done, UltraVNC can be installed normally as service, and it will be ready to connect to with VNCviewer and the same default password as the original local PC. Then you can change password/auth.
|create the registry value AuthRequired under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ORL\WinVNC3 and set it to 0 (a DWORD value). That enabled "passwordless" VNC access, which isn't that bad in my case since I limited it to loopback only anyway (and I can keep the VNC service stopped when not needed). Also, MSLogon seems to work when I enabled that in the registry as well.|
|Immediately log in with VNC and start it
as a service.
Now since VNC is hooking video as if we were sitting in front of a console rather than RDP's session stuff, we can attach to the newly started vnc service. Go to start->program files->Ultra VNC->Ultra VNC Server [folder]->Show Default Settings (Assuming everything is in the default places/names at least...)
Now set your password. Do a save and get outta there. Exit VNC client locally, and reconnect - now it prompts for password. Remove the authrequired key.
UltraVNC as a service via RDP will not prompt to set default password no matter what options are chosen. UltraVNC as a service must be installed locally for it to work properly.
