Some help please - logging, and using port 443

Heya. Since you're running on Windows, might I suggest
that you try Kaboodle? Via its VNC Service icon, you can turn
on logging, get logging reports, and setup VNC to run on whatever
port you want. It handles all the required registry tweaking,
and works with whatever VNC version you'r comfy with. You can
download it freely here: "www.Kaboodle.org".
PS: Regarding port 443, if you setup that port for the VNC data
connection, I *believe* that VNC's builtin Java server will
listen on port 343 -- always 100 less than the data port. I
don't actually use the Java viewer, so can't confirm this.
