thelowlyone Posted October 3, 2006 Share Posted October 3, 2006 I'm running a Windows XP (Home Edition) computer behind a NAT router and I control it remotely using VNC. However, I recently lost control of it. I'm not sure what happened but when I tried connecting to it yesterday it just wouldn't connect. No error message or anything the viewer just opened and then closed. I'm using TightVNC server and I've tried using the TightVNC viewer, UltraVNC viewer and the Java viewer to connect to the computer with no success. The machine is located in my uncle's house and he's out of town for the next 2 weeks or so which means I can't get physical access to it (not to mention he lives ~80 miles from me). I can connect to the router fine (remote management is enabled). I checked all the settings on the router such as port forwarding and such. Is there anyway for me to get shell access to the computer so that I can restart the machine or just the VNC server? Thanks in advance.
