RE: WinVNC-Problem??You're quite wrong here.
You can't send ctrl-alt-del keystrokes directly to any windows machine, but
software running on the machine can emulate it.
And the VNC server does.

Simply use 'Shift' at the same time [ie shift-ctrl-alt-del]

This is ignored by the local machine, and intercepted by the VNC server.

Why the cursors are repeated I don't know - try selecting a different polling
method.

  I think it is impossible to 'send' ctrl-alt-del to a Windows 2000 machine.
  It is classed as a hardware event for security. (stops script being able to
  compromise security)

  I tried it here and get the same thing.

  Scenario:
  I a running WinVNC 3.3.3 R2 on a Windows 2000 machine. The machine is set in

  standby mode, configured for Wakeup on LAN. When i'm running the VNC viewer
  to connect to the PC from home, the connection can be established.

  But when sending ctrl-alt-del to get the logon screen, nothing happens. When

  moving the mouse, several mouse cursors are displayed on the screen.

  Question:
  What is happening here? Why can i not get control and work with the PC? Any
  answers are welcome.
