ConnectPriority - Registry info

I found the fix, Tracy.  It doesn't make sense, either.

I created the DWORD value under

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/ORL/WinVNC3/

as well as

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/ORL/WinVNC3/Default

And it now disconnects any secondary connection attempts.

I found the following reference in the "History.txt" file accompanying
the Windows source files, which seems to suggest that this value should
be read from the top-level key instead of "Default".


"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/ORL/WinVNC3/ConnectPriority
 setting can take one of three values:
  0 - new, non-shared incoming connections kick off existing ones.
  1 - all incoming connections are treated as shared, regardless of
the -shared viewer option.
  2 - new, non-shared incoming connections will be refused if a current
connection exists."



What this doesn't explain is why setting ConnectPriority to 1 within the
.Default key successfully allows shared connections.

: Just a quick note - I am going to try checking this out on my system,

:
: "AutoPortSelect" - mine was 1 as opposed to your "0" - but see next
item
: "PortNumber" - you had this which I didn't, but yours is set to
0x170c(5900),
: the default
: "IdleTimeout" - Yours is "0"; I didn't have this setting
: "ConnectPriority" - I had this set to "1"from checking your problem
