On a local network (No NATS), I got UltraVNC SC (non encrypted) to work fine. I am running the viewer in Linux with Wine.
I got the non encrypted choice to work just fine. But there is no shared secret to get it going (even if not encrypted). That kind of bothers me, since a user may try and run it again, when the IP address targeting the viewer is no longer mine. Though perhaps a remote possibility, what happens if someone else with that IP has a viewer running and a person wanting help tries to run the preconfigured exe to that IP? There does not seem to be protection, like a shared secret, to prevent undesired connections.
I also tried xvncviewer on Linux, which I don't know well. It accepted the connection, but never showed me a display. That may just be a learning curve for me if it should have worked at all.
I was not able to test the encrypted mode, because there seems to be a problem with Wine and the MSRC4 plugin when using the UltraVNC viewer. Google searches seem to acknowledge that problem when using Wine.
I guess I would need to try two XP's (which is off topic to write about? ) or figure out how to get a viewer in Linux to deal with MSRC4 from UltraVNC SC.
