    running server 2003 with ultravnc. could vnc into it from a pc running ultra vnc, also my macbook running chicken of the vnc

    i tried out a vnc program called crossloop [link]
    it worked out fine, but since then i haven't been able to vnc into my server.

    uninstalled crossloop on server, reinstalled ultravnc on server and pc and chicken of the vnc

    i get a connection refused error whenever i try to connect

    why the fuck would use run 2003 and vnc? That's so stupid. Use RDP.

    worked with RDP, figured out how to do it on my macbook

    vnc is still hosed, oh well. i guess this is a better option. why though?

    RDP is far better than VNC.

    VNC, gotomypc etc should always be alternatives in case RDP has issues
