There are multiple versions of VNC out there on the web. I am going to show you examples of UltraVNC which I particularly like. You can download UltraVNC from »ultravnc.sourceforge.net/download.htm after running the normal installation exe file one of the last screens in the install will look like this:
You want to select the "Register Ultr@VNC Server as a system service" and the "Start or restart Ultr@VNC service." The options for icon locations is entirely up to you. Press the "Next >" button and finish up with the install.
After the installation finished. Right click on the Ultr@VNC icon in the tray and select properties. If the icon isn't there than go to your Start Menu -> Programs -> UltraVNC -> Ultr@VNC Server -> Run Service Helper.
When the properties window comes up you want to do the following:•Check the Accept Socket Connections and put a password in the textbox (VERY IMPORTANT!!)
•Select the "AUTO" radio button so that the server will pick the 5900 port.
•Check the "Allow Loopback Connections" checkbox.
•Check the "Remove Desktop Wallpaper" checkbox.
Press Apply and then OK. Try to connect to the server. If actually on the server when trying to connect, the screen will go into a loop and and keep displaying the same thing over and over again like two mirros looking at each other. If everything works this step is complete.
