This is a question and also potentially Feature suggest.
Once I worked with UltraVNC, and it had this nice feature called
AutoReconnect. This is the text from the UltraVNC site explaining this
Is used in conjunction with the -connect switch when having a server
"back-connect" to a listening viewer. You can use it in a batch file for
your clients that are behind a firewall that is not under your control. The
batch file looks something like this:
"c:\program files\ultravnc\winvnc" -autoreconnect -connect 184.108.40.206
On the local computer run the viewer in "listening" mode, and have someone
on the server end run the batch file. The -autoreconnect will make the
server end attempt to reconnect to the listening viewer if the connection
drops or is closed. It will immediately reconnect to the listening viewer if
the session is closed. Close the listening viewer altogether in order to
stop the server end from "autoreconnecting" to your computer. The server
attempts to "autoreconnect" for only a few seconds.
So my feature suggest is to add an autoconnect option to the TightVnc.
Meanwhile, I thought to write some script that "ask" the Tight Server if it
connected, and if not, to reconnect it.
My question: is there any way to know (by a command) if the server is
connected to a viewer or?
