Hey folks. I have made some improvements to the win32 vnc viewer version
3.3.3r9.

Back in November I hacked 3.3.3r3 so I could get past a socks
firewall. Now I finally spent some time to integrate this as a full
feature and fix a few other things that annoy me on a daily basis.

Here's what I have added:

1,2 
Establishing a connection through a SOCKS 5 compliant firewall.
(very basic though - one that does not require authentication)
Just enter a name like: "vnc.server.com:0 "at" socks5.firewall.com:1080"

3
Load & Save the last used connection options in the registry.

4
Checkbox option to suppress the 
"Here's how you get out of fullscreen" nag box.

5
Run connection files in explorer without the need to register VNC.

6
Configuration file names which contain spaces and/or 
are surrounded by double quotation marks.


Details of these modifications are in a file called
"SDM_Changes_To_Source.txt" in the project directory.

I don't have anything to make nice patch files on my windows box so for
now I have the whole project available for download. Someone give me a
clue and I'll make a patch file.

You can get the .exe and/or the project files here:

This has not had any extensive testing. Use at your own risk. 
It works for me and that's what really matters :)

Please contact me directly if your correspondence is not appropriate for
the vnc list.

Regards,
Sean
