I'm glad to inform you that new TightVNC 1.2.6 version is available.
It does not include a major new features, its main release focus is to
fix the problems in the Unix part introduced in the previous release.
TightVNC is a VNC distribution with many new features, improvements,
and bugfixes over VNC. It is optimized for faster operation on slow
network links such as modem connections, provides more configuration
options in the server, features automatic SSH tunneling in the Unix
vncviewer, and more. The modified servers and viewers are fully
compatible with the original VNC software.
The sources and binaries are available from this page:
Here is a brief list of changes as compared to the previous release:
- Win32 version: In this version, when WinVNC binds to a local TCP
port, it does not try to check several times if the port is in
use. It just re-uses the port if the display number is not set to
"Auto". One visible effect of this change is that the delay
between starting up and showing the icon is greatly reduced.
- Unix version: Fixed the bug which caused the vncserver script to
fail when the XAUTHORITY environment variable was not set.
- Unix version: Fixed the bug which prevented the vncpasswd utility
from setting correct permissions on the passwd file.
- Unix version: Fixed a repeated challenge replay attack
vulnerability, bugtraq id 5296.
- Unix version: Added files to simplify building of Linux RPMs,
thanks to Peter Astrand.
- Unix version: Improved scrolling in the full-screen mode, modified
patch from Ville Herva.
- Minor cleanups.
With Best Wishes,
