Default Setting up VNC

This is for people WITH routers. If you don't have a router, you will not need to port forward.

First off, get RealVNC.

www.realvnc.com

[you're going to be using User-Mode, not Service-Mode (at least I do)]

Click download now and get the free version. You WANT to have a server running on your computer. Keep all the settings the same (but in the Input tab you may want to un-check them all if you just want people WATCHING you but not controlling you)

Also in the authentication tab turn ON "VNC Password Authentication" and click configure and enter the password you want people to use.

Keep the ports 5800 and 5900 in the connections tab and make sure that Java is enabled.

Also, goto the sharing tab and make sure that it's on "Always," this allows more than one person to connect to you.

Now goto start -> run -> type in command and hit enter. Now type in ipconfig and you should see something like this (NOTE: If command doesn't work, try cmd):
Code:
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\Mark>ipconfig

Windows IP Configuration


Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection 2:

		Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . : hsd1.il.comcast.net.
		IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.100
		Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
		Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1

C:\Documents and Settings\Mark>
You're going to be looking at the default gateway. Goto this URL in your webbrowser:

http://DEFAULTGATEWAYHERE

So for me, this would be http://192.168.0.1

Login to your router using your username and password. If you don't know it, or havent ever messed with it, try using some of these:

Code:
Username: admin
Password: (blank)

Username: admin
Password: admin
You get the idea, mess around with combinations of that.

Now go to http://portforward.com/english/route...outerindex.htm and find your router.

Remember when we did IP config? The IP you're going to be forwarding is going to be this one
Code:
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.100
Forward ports 5800 and 5900 to your IP address. Now that that's all setup, run the server in user-mode and you should be good to go.

To allow others to view you/control you (if you have those options enabled), you need to send them a URL containing your IP address and your Java port. You also need to tell them your password.

Visit www.whatismyip.com and copy your IP. Now you need to make a special URL.

It isn't that hard, just put http:// in front of it and put :5800 after it, so if my IP is 1.1.1.1 (obviously not real), then you would do:

http://1.1.1.1:5800

They will then be prompted with a password/login screen, and voila!


This can be used for MANY different things. Such as what I'm using it for.

Enable every kind of input (mouse, etc.), change the password to something you'll remember. Write down your IP.

Now at school just goto your URL that we made earlier, type in password and you know have full access to your PC from school! If you enable the clipboard options that such then you can easily copy/paste documents over onto the schools PC that you forgot to print, etc.

Also, the internet from your PC is STILL FROM YOUR PC. If your school has blocks on the internet then you can visit them from your PC at home but still be on the school's computers.

Other uses of this may include helping someone with computer problems. You can just send them a link to this guide and get them to set up VNC so you can help them from your PC!
