Real VNC (Unlock Remote PC)

Ibm / THINKPAD

Specs: Windows Vista, 2G
I installed real VNC server on my office PC. I locked my office PC. Now at home, I can remotely connect to my office PC. However, using Alt-Ctr-Del, I cannot unlock my office PC remotely. Using Alt-Ctr-Del will only lock my local home PC. Is that because VNC doesn't support Alt-Ctr-Del? If I want to remotely control my office PC, I cannot lock my office PC. Is that right?

You cannot press control-alt-del, but VNC has a menu option to "send" ctrl-alt-del to the remote computer. Try right-clicking on the taskbar button for VNC viewer to see this menu.

Ryan,

Thanks for your reply. I access remote office
PC from the IE browser
(http://MyPCName:5800/). I am not using
VNCViewer client because of company's
security policy. My company uses Citrix
MetaFrame (Virtual Office). So I need to open
Citrix IE browser to connect to company
network and that is why I am using IE browser
to access remote office PC where I installed
VNC server. So there is no menu option to
send "control-alt-del" from IE browser. Any
solution for this type of VNC access? Thanks!

You might try Shift-Ctrl-Alt-Del. I know one of the VNC Java Viewers has a button to send ctrl-alt-delete. If it's not in the latest version of RealVNC, it might be in UltraVNC or TightVNC.

Shift-Ctrl-Alt-Del doesn't work for me. Real
RNC doesn't have a button to send ctrl-alt-
del. Anyway, thanks for your help!

Ryan,

For the shift-alt-ctrl-del to work, do I need
to run Real VNC server as a service instead
of as an application since my office PC is
windows 2000?

Thanks a lot!

Yes. The VNC server should be running as a service if you want to be able to connect when no user is logged on.
