I use a combination of TigtVNC and Remote Desktop Connection (RDP) on my
Windows XP Professional machine. This machine is connected to a TV using
TV-out, put aside in a closet. I have no monitor connected. Every now and
then I want to start my favorite media player, and get output on my TV.
Using TightVNC is perfect for doing this; just connect and start my media
player. But for more ``serious'' work I really like to connect using RDP. It
gives fast response, adapting screen resolution to the connecting client
But, I can only connect, using TightVNC viewer, to the machine as long as I
haven't connected to the machine with RDP. While the RDP session is active
the TV says "Workstation is locked". After a RDP session, I log out the
user. On the TV I can see "Press Ctrl-Alt-Delete to logon". Now I connect
using TightVNC Viewer. The normal password prompt appears, and I'm
authenticates successfully. But now the screen justs goes black, and sending
Ctrl-Alt-Delete does not pop up the logon dialog.
Again, as long as I haven't run a RDP session, TightVNC works really well; I
connect, authenticates with the TightVNC password, sends a Ctrl-Alt-Delete,
and the normal XP logon dialog pops up. I logout from my XP session, and
there is no problem repeating the TightVNC connection.
Anybody having the same problem, or a solution?
