Subject: vnc server running in a citrix connection
I have a friend of mine that works for a work from home company and
she has a concern. I believe I know the answer but she is concerned
server, that they are able to see her laptops desktop as well.
Assuming that the VNC server at your friend's workplace is compiled
from standard code, she need not worry that her employer can see
her desktop. That said, the code is open-source, and there is
nothing to prevent them from modifying the source of vncviewer,
which can already act as a server, to allow the employer to snoop
on her. Were I in her position and worried about it, I would get a
copy of the standard vncviewer and use that instead. If the
employer distributes the standard version, they wouldn't notice
(unless they check timestamps or something should they ever get
access to my computer); since it would be the standard
distribution, they wouldn't be able to snoop. if they complained
that I wasn't using the code they gave me, OTOH, that would pretty
much confirm that what they gave me wasn't standard, and they
*were* snooping on my desktop.
My two cents worth; HTH!
Thx, Phil Long
