Changing WinVNC service port

Well I figured it out. 5800 is for the web the first connection that is, the
second will connect to 5801 and so on, the same is for the viewer. At least
that's what I think they're talking about. Anyway to change the port go onto
the registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ORL\WinVNC3\Default, then change
the AutoSelectPort from 1 to 0. Next add a new REG_DWORD value named
PortNumber and add the port number you want to use there... be sure to enter
it in decimal. when done stop and restart the VNC Server service. I did it
and it works for the viewer only, the web will no longer function... this is
by design.

Good luck.
Darryl
