Micro AmigaOne, Running AmiVNC4 (OS4Depot) being remoted into from my work PC.

- and if I can do it, you can - trust me!

I second that, if Mikey can do it, anyone can.

Mikey could write off a dodgem car (a play on crash! )

Sad, but true.


I recommend TightVNC (Windows) btw, works faster than the official vnc client and faster than the one recommended on the readme file.

Performance wise, don't get excited, all you can really do is run IRC or Simplemail. etc.

Games are a complete no no.

My recommendation
To run: Download/Copy Amivnc4 to C

Open Shell type Amivnc -pPassword (no space between -p switch and your password) - This should confirm that a password has been stored.

exit

Open new shell type Amivnc4 [enter]
this leaves a shell window open (do not close it for as long as you need amivnc4 to run

find out what your IP address is. Go to another machine and enter machine IP address. Note, that if you are on a home network, then it would typically be your machine's local address number. for example 192.168.1.20 etc.

If you want to remote in from Work/somewhere else it is important that..
A) You leave the Amiga on
B) Its connected to the internet.
C) Find out what you're internet IP address is. Log onto OS4Depot it tells you on the top right hand side.

When you get to the other end, run a vnc client like I recommended and type in your internet IP address plus your password when prompted.

If you're sitting behind a firewall router, you may have to configure it to allow traffic through port 5900 (I think, please check port no is correct)

Note: That it is a lot faster over a LAN than it is over the internet. I suppose it depends on your internet connection/traffic I guess.

Thats it

I tried this myself a couple of months ago (lying in bed and accessing the A1 from my laptop seemed like a good idea at the time). It runs for about ten minutes and then (the server) crashes or (the client) loses the connection and won't reconnect without rebooting (the server).

Oddly, I get similar problems with RDesktop, that always crashes after about 10-15 mins of use.

I do wonder if it's because my gfx card refuses to work with interrupts enabled.

I run it all day today from work and I only lost the connection once, when I tried to run Ibrowse (silly thing to do) - However I managed to re-connect.

The only thing you cannot do is R-Amiga Copy/Paste

My question is....

Why do peoples windows install always have messy shortcuts spattered all over the screen ?

Are we nearly there yet ?

It's purely to avoid having to use the Start Menu (at least, that's why I do it. I also use the desktop to save temporary files, whereas I would use RAM: on AmigaOS)

It's also because each time you install a new program, the installer is setup by default to add a shortcut on the desktop...

Yes, and this annoys me. Many don't even give you the option of not adding the short-cut, thus forcing me to delete them post-installation. Even more annoying are those installers that, by default, install browser toolbars, etc. Most annoying are installers that install other additional software that you didn't ask for, e.g., Apple keeps on wanting to install Safari and iTunes on my laptop; I keep on saying NO.

@MikeyC

TightVNC is a pretty good VNC client for windows. I've used it on occasion for viewing my Amigaone screen. One of the other VNC clients (I forget which one) always messed up the colours. AmiVNC4 definitely sends the right data; it was that VNC client that was messing things up.

Hans

EDIT: It's TightVNC, not TwinVNC. Corrected.

That's a gorgeous desktop. My deserted beach/island is rather unspectacular in comparison (It'll probably still be there for 3-Cag Revival if I bring my A1). My Windows one is even more plain - it's just the default blue with a few shortcuts on it (and surprisingly few files - I've managed to restrain myself and put everything on D:, or at least move things there). I did have a picture on it once, but I had to reinstall and I used an image I created before I changed the backdrop.
