  • After XP SP3 cannot remote to PCs

    We have been rolling out XP Pro service pack3 to some of our desktop PCs. Immediately this is done we are no longer able to use VNC to remote to them. We have VNC as an exception in the Windows firewall rules in the group policy. What changed between SP2 and SP 3 to break this?

    Thanks

    What is the exact error you get when trying to connect with VNC?

      I have to apologise as since I posted that message I am pretty certain that the issue is NOT Hyena/VNC.

      It is most likely the new AV software is at fault This is ESET Smart Security which includes a firewall. Unfortunately I was forced to deploy this at almost the same time as SP3 because of the latest outbreaks.

      I have just checked one of the SP3 PCs that has not yet been updated and I CAN connect via Hyena / VNC without a problem.

      So please ignore me................. :-)

      Thanks

        No problem at all. If you find a resolution to that please post back here in case anyone else using that AV software runs into issues.
