Sound Issues with VNC
Tue Jun 10 18:57:00 2003
I have been looking into this for a while.
Basically, if you have a SSH tunnel open for your VNC connection (which you are doing, right) you can direct the appropriate alert through the tunnel to the client on the other side.
A good place to look, at least for the Linux/Unix side, is NAS:
Here is a website with some other sound server links for *nix:
For Windows, it looks like you only bet is to use a 3rd-party software. You can use something like MessagePopupII 1.5 (check download.com).
Lastly, go to this site to read about how to make a quick batch file that causes PCs to emit a beep sound:
You could use several of the available remote application run scripts:
to force the server to run the beep batch script remotely on the client...again, through the SSH tunnel.
Some ideas to try...
