Setting Up ReverseVNC Connections
I've been getting quite a few hits on my family web page on how to compile two stand alone files using TightVNC to setup a reversevnc (reverse vnc) connection. I'm impressed with the continuing interest in the approach over the last year and a half. I've found that when the encoding protocol is set to "tight" with 8-bit color, the screen responsiveness is as good as UltraVNC and RealVNC even without DFMirage installed. I've also been able to use the files successfully with Vista Home Edition even though some websites suggest it shouldn't work. If you have any ideas for improving the reversevnc process you would like to share, freshmeat.net is the ideal location to post your suggestions to help others.

Re: More on Stand Alone Reverse VNC Connection File
Yes, I have run into this issue myself but don't have a solution. Since I'm controlling the remote computer, I just close out the application from the tool bar (bottom right) myself which immediately breaks the connection. FYI, I've posted a set of highly detailed and highly simplified instructions on how to create the reversevnc files on my family homepage.
