I only know a little about VNC now, but I would like to see the following in addition to extreme ease for the person being helped to run it.
Both parties agree on a password, verbally or through messenger, even email.
The viewer software (helper) asks its user for the password, encrypts it (using self contained software for more portability?), then sends it to the server (helpee). The sever software asks its user for the password, encrypts it, and compares it to the transmitted encryption from the viewer. If they match the server can continue. If not, do not allow a connection. That would remove the possibility of moving forward with an unintended connection.

>>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 preconfiguredexe to that IP? There does not seem to be protection, like a shared secret, to prevent undesired connections.

reverse vnc ftw
