Let me answer your second question first: VNC4.
Actually, I'd been using VNC 3.3.7 with Win2003 Server for several months but I was always having problem with it (VNC server was causing errors and being shutdown by system). And finally, I switched to VNC4 because others said it's more stable. However, VNC4 still has some problem of "crashing".
OK, back to the word "crash" ...... well, I can't actually describe what it is because I didn't jot down every visible problem. Some instances that I can remember are:
1) I initiate a connection but it failed (forgot which error message)
2) I've got the password dialog and as soon as I enter the password, it failed.
3) I've got the client window and after a very short period, it closed down. And in this situation, I'am sure that the server has "crashed".
I have to mention that the VNC4 is registered as a service. Moreover, the serivce is configured to recover (to restart) 1 minute after every failure.
And when VNC server failed (crashed), there's a dialog on the console. You know, the dialog asking if you want to report the problem back to Microsoft with two buttons: "Send" and "Don't Send".
