WinVNC-Problem??

It's worth noting that if the machine you're running the viewer on is
running Win95 or Win98, the Shift-Ctrl-Alt-Del trick doesn't work.  You have
to use the 'Send Ctrl-Alt-Del' menu option.  Shift-Ctrl-Alt-Del works fine
if you're running the viewer on Windows NT, though.

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.
