Wouldn't do much good to send C-A-Del to a '95 machine. That stops all
running programs, including the WinVNC server that would have generated it.
You wouldn't be able to regain control from the task dialog that pops up.

Subject:  CTRL-ALT-DEL ... again




Hi,
     I've read all the FAQs and several e-mails about C-A-D issues.  I
just wanted clarification about one thing:  a VNC client is ONLY able to
send a CTRL-ALT-DEL to a NT machine running the VNC server as a service.
I'm running the VNC server as a service on a Win95 machine and I cannot
send a CTRL-ALT-DEL to it from a client.  Is the VNC server running on a
Win95 box incapable of receiving a C-A-D from a client?  If it is
incapable, could anyone suggest alternative ways to send a CTRL-ALT-DEL
from a client?  (WinTop, a Microsoft Kernel Toy, is able to terminate
Windows processes.  Any other suggestions?)



Thanks,

Paul Burnett
