Re: VNC server stops responding after a few days

The uncommented line in the hosts file is simply: 127.0.0.1 localhostThe default gateway is setup in the Windows IP properties (along with the other static settings) to be 192.168.0.254, which is our modem/router/DHCP server. The modem has an external static IP that we would be connecting to with VNC. I can connect to it on that address and the internal 192.168.0.99 ... The command line on the VNC Viewer shortcut is just the default vncviewer.exe with no options.
I just woke up one of the VNC servers/desktops that stopped working over the weekend. I opened the web browser and it took a bit to load; was it asking for an IP renewal? Maybe it's just the power saving options that are at fault:

Just the usualbroadcast traffic...I'm not a networking or Windows expert, but this presumably depends on whether the client (XP?) actually has the VNC server's IP address in its hosts file (something like C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts). If it doesn't, then it will send a request to get the address from the DHCP server. If the client ends up using the IP address supplied by the server, then it will eventually expire. I've had exactly this problem on another X server (not VNC).James: what's in your hosts file? And how does the client actually connect to the server? What's the VNC command line?_______________________________________________ VNC-List mailing list VNC-List@xxxxxxxxxxx To remove yourself from the list visit: http://www.realvnc.com/mailman/listinfo/vnc-list
