Repeater and Query for connection

Postby Holli » 2012-12-19 10:28


I must use a repeater for mobile computer`s. Thats work without problems. But it will be nice if the user must accepted connections from the support personal. But this is at the moment only possbile for new incoming connections.
Can this feature add?

As i understand, the ini Settings
Code: Select all
QueryAccept=0   ( 0=refuse 1=accept  2=refuse)

have no effect in Repeater-Mode Installations.

That is very sad and i would like to see such a feature in the future. This is very important for certain privacy demands, because repeater mode is essential for many vnc configurations.

Isn't there a part in the source, where the server recognizes an incoming data stream during an established repeater connection?
Would it be possible to implement the ini options at exactly this place?
Does it make sense?

Thanks in advance

Using the repeater, both data streams are outgoing.
The repeater cross the streams. The 2 outgoing connections are needed
to bypass the nat translation.

The querysetting part is only implemented on the incoming part. Can't work.

I mean, there is a logic in uvnc that changes Desktop Wallpaper/Aero on connect. At exactly that place in the code wouldn't it be possible to implement a timeout/blackscreen for the connecting user, while there is a popup on the server side, that asks whether you want to be connected to or not?
The logic that can detect a connection is there or is it not?
I do not mean no connection at all, I only talk about not remote control/view without permission.

Yes. This is needed.
The way @hrichter wrote would be most compatible (with current repeaters)
or with custom repeater - if password is forward from viewer to repeater to server checked, why cant flag 'allow' be send to from server to repeater and then repeater would say "OK, viewer you can connect".

This part is a missing link imo, especially after all those "my private/my security" buzz around.

This is the only part that make ultravnc not as good as TeamViewer.
There is already that in uvnc2me right ? but then uvnc2me is missing UAC support.
