>From my experience the problem occurs often when using Sevice-mode and
console sessions, I can certainly understand the problems with other TS
sessions, but when disconnecting from the console session why does that
sometimes cause VNC sessions to freeze?
I'd like to understand this problem a little more, at present my company
is planning a major upgrade of our remote management application, and
unfortunately my recommendations will be to move away from the current
total reliance on vnc to rdp largely due to this problem (basically more
and more xp and 2k3 machines means this problem will only get worse).
Unfortunately despite this problem being rather well known very little
detailed info is available and so very little options are available for
working around this.
Ideally I would like to be able to use VNC and RDP console together..

The problem described is only an issue if the session being remoted by
is a TS session - this is often the case with the console session when
User Switching or Remote Desktop are used under XP.
Under 2K3, running a User-Mode VNC Server process inside a TS session
then disconnecting the TS session is the way to see the problem. VNC
in Service-Mode will happily remote the console session of 2K3
whether or not TS is used for other sessions.
