    VNC and UAC

    Hi All,

     

    I am looking at an issue selecting a suitable tool for Remote Access to our "Things", historically we have used a re-packaged VNC application but have come up against these issues:

     

    • When run as a service, the remote user always connects to the console terminal, this is ok for physical machines, but for virtual machines that the customer manages via RDP, you do not connect to same terminal as them, so cannot "Screen-Share".

     

    • When run as an application to guarantee both users are sharing the same terminal, UAC protected windows (Server Manager, etc,) cause the VNC session to hang until the "local" user (connected via RDP) accepts the UAC prompt, then the user connected over VNC can continue working.

     

    Does anyone have any advice/solution?
