Request: Dynamic accept_reject_mesg

Hello,

It would be nice if you can put a dynamic text in accept-reject messagebox before a connection, maybe to give a little explaination why are you connecting, and not get rejected because a generic message like "somebody wants to connect".

Thank you for your time.

Ok, but this text in ultravnc.ini is static and predefined before start the windows service like "Somebody wants to connect". what i'm triying to say is:

Deploy ultravnc in 300 pcs via script. Differents departments can connect via vnc ( it support from barcelona, it support from rumania, system manager from new york, system manager from texas )
Connect to one machine and put in accept-reject messagebox: I am from IT support department, I need to install X software, please call me at 2900.
A partner from another department wants to connect to a different machine and in accept-reject messagebox: I am from System manager department, there are a problem in your antivirus software, please call me at 5060.

Like... custom messages previous a connection to give more confident to a person with no computer knowledge that see a "strange" window in his computer.

sorry for bad english.

Nice ideaa but not simple to implement.

Allowing custom messages would also need an authentication mechanism to prevent unwanted or misleading messages. The be compatible with vnc versions that doesn't have a custom message some protocol negotiation is needed and all need to be done using rfb 3.8 protocol.

For the request list.
