VNC on Windows 2000 professional
Wed Apr 16 21:50:00 2003
This sounds like a registry problem
Current user vs local machine (default) vnc settings.
Easiest way to fix if this is the issue.
First make sure vnc is running
See if you have contents here. If so delete the winvnc3 folder.
Next run winvnc -defaultsettings (note the title at the top) or navigate
from start_button, programs, realvnc, vnc server, show default properties.
Set the password.
Next restart winvnc either by service or reboot.
And all should be fine.

I've been wrestling with this too. I tried several things which seemed to
make a difference, only to have the problem reappear. In my case the
machines are always logged in, but I have the login screen saver set to
come up. When that happens, sometimes, I see the behavior you
described. I can't access the machine through VNC until I login again,
then it works like it's supposed to. My machines are always logged in with
admin rights, so I don't think that's it. I can't make the problem happen.
Hopefully someone else has already figured this out!
