But it will fail to connect if :
- The VNC server is listening on another port than the default one (5900).
- If the authentication method is more sophisticated :
- By requesting a computer login (user name and password)
- By requesting an encryption method
If a computer login is requested, user name and password are entered as shown on the following image :
Encryption methods are not supported by In-Hand VNC yet.
After having entered the correct Identification parameters, the connection will still fail if the IP address of the remote computer cannot be directly reached due to a firewall or a gateway.
The firewall will have to be configured to accept requests from a VNC client.
In-hand VNC allows a connection to a gateway (proxy) by giving the IP address or the HTTP address of the gateway and its port as shown on the following image :
Click on Network entry. Select either Socks to provide an IP address or HTTP to provide an HTTP address. Fill entries Proxy address and Proxy port.
