I have a problem logging onto a Windows 2000 webserver that has VNC
installed. When I am out in the field I will often use VNC and my laptop to
log onto the webserver to troubleshoot things. For some reason a problem has
come up where I can not connect to the webserver using VNC IF the webserver
had not already logged onto. So for example if there is a long power outage
and the webserver reboots inself and it comes to the Windows 2000 log on
screen, I can not use VNC, it will not connect. If someone locally signs
onto the Windows 2000 webserver and the webserver returns to the Log on
screen, then VNC works ok.
I want it to always work on the sign on screen after a reboot. It's a pain
to put in service call to have someone go to faciliti to sign on each time
after a reboot.
It worked ok until I installed a Linksys wirless hub. In the installation I
blocked all ports except those used by the website and the VNC program for
Any know what the problem might be?
