TightVNC - Firewall : Limmited success!

Post by oldman » Sat May 24, 2014 4:40 pm

Neither of these are an 'Epic Win', but I have had a little success with them.

TightVNC 1.3.10 (it's not the latest version) - http://www.tightvnc.com/download-old.php
I have been able to install this software on two computers. I have been able to log into computer 1 from computer 2. The desktop cleared, then displayed it's icons again (viewed on computer 1's screen). On computer 2, a window opened and displayed computer 1's desktop. I was able to open computer 1's explorer from computer 2, but the Explorer had a transparent main window (viewed on computer 1 screen). When I closed down TightVNC on computer 2, Explorer on computer 1 filled in the window and displayed it's icons.

Don't get excited, it's a long way from being fully functional and it is very slow.

dcfirewall 1.3.113 - http://sourceforge.net/projects/dcfirewall/
This does not work as a firewall, but it installs and runs, showing a window, It ended up locking the computer when I clicked on a button!
Please keep the Windows classic (9x/2000) look and feel.
The layman's guides to - debugging - bug reporting - compiling - with some complementary scripts.
They may help you with a problem, so do have a look at them.

Please provide a revision number of ROS image You tested.
Also, If You have debug logs, then make a JIRA bug report, it will help us greatly :)
