It *sounds* like VNC is not running in service mode. Next time this happens,
try telnetting on port 5900 to the machine and see if you get the RFB text.
If you don't, then VNC is probably not running in service mode and you just
need to re-install the service portion. If you *do* get that text, then
there's something else wrong.
On the off chance that's not it, what sort of response do you get when you
attempt to log in? Is it just a timeout error or does it say "connection
refused" or what? Also, any log entries on the Win2k server?

Subject: Sign on problem
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?
