Security How To

Setup Step 2

Now we need to load the TightVNC server package onto the PC we wish to control. The package can be downloaded here. Once the download completes, install the application onto your PC. Make sure you allow the installer to install TightVNC as a service so that it can start automatically when the PC boots up. You will also need to set up a password for the server component of TightVNC. The setup tab can be found in the Show current user properties dialog box shown in Figure 10.

The password you set up will be required anytime you wish to connect to your computer and control it from another VNC client (such as the TightVNC custom extension for SSL Explorer). Also be sure to check the allow loopback connections option under the Administration tab (Figure 11).

NOTE: Whereas SSL Explorer uses TCP port 443 for its communication, TightVNC by default will use TCP port 5900. So make sure any firewall software on the PC will allow incoming TCP connections to port 5900.
