Have you set it to run as a service, installed the default registry settings
and given it a default password all from an administrator login?
I am not an expert on running it on 2000, but I use my 2000 computer to
access 8 data collection computers running NT or 95/98. I always install it
as administrator and give administrative access to the user I plan to have
logged in most of the time. Then I set the password as the user. Then make
the user a user and not an admin. Works slick for the NT boxes. Then I can
log on and off remotely as I desire.
Hope this is of some assistance.
I have some other thoughts if you are interested in contacting me off list.

Subject: [Vantage] OT - Loggin On VNC With Admin Privileges


I could use a little help from the VNC experts. Yesterday I downloaded VNC
to use to control workstations over the LAN - so I'm not real great at it
yet. I want to be able to access the workstations with administrator
privileges. Can't seem to make it do that trick. I'm using W2K Pro with 2
test workstations set up -- server & viewer.

It works fine when I use the default login as "Local System Account". But
when I set up VNC on the server workstation to log on as administrator
account (in the Log On tab in the VNC Service), I lose the VNC icon on the
taskbar tray. And then when I try to access it from the VNC viewer on the
other workstation, I get a "Connection Closed" message. So that tells me
that VNC is not running (but it must be, because the service is turned on).
Then if I try to start the VNC program from the start menu, it says another
version of the program is already running. So it's running, but it's not
making the connection.

Any ideas on how to set this up so that I can use it logged in with admin
privileges? Or point me to a web site that explains it.

Thanks.
