PocketCloud Windows Companion 2.5.13 has builtin TightVNC server on port 28790?

Question PocketCloud Windows Companion 2.5.13 has builtin TightVNC server on port 28790?

How come Wyse doesn't tell us that Wyseremoteaccess.exe service is actually a TightVNC server and you can setup a Remote Shadowing VNC session using Windows user name/password?
The PC even show up in Discovered Connections list.
No need for 3rd party VNC server.

I read the article but the Remote shadowing (VNC) is not available as Discovered Connections AS IS after installations, only RDP.
If you check the box for 3rd party VNC then you see the Remote shadowing (VNC) at Discovered Connections but will ask you for a password...

That is correct, remote shadowing is not available AS IS with non Home versions of Windows (that do not have RDP capability). You will be asked for a password if the 3rd party VNC option is enabled within the companion. What you will need to do is install the TightVNC client to set a VNC password so you can connect.

Download TightVNC here:
http://tightvnc.com/download.php

After that is done, set a VNC password and make sure the port matches within TightVNC and in the companion.

Thank you for your reply.
How do I setup remote shadowing (VNC) without installing 3rd party VNC Servers on non Home OS's?
I already know how to connect RDP with a Discovered Connection but I want to be able to use remote shadowing (VNC) AS IS.

Thanks

Unfortunately installing a 3rd party VNC client is the only way to do this on non-home versions of Windows as of this time.

RE: PocketCloud Windows Companion 2.5.13 has builtin TightVNC server on port 28790?

I am a newby and am having a tough go of this stuff. Everything was working fine until I rebooted my pc and my android. Then from the Discovered Connections I click that pc and it asks me to enter username and password. I enter the only ones I've been using and it says 'Invalid Credentials'. I've seen the link for all this credentials stuff but I don't know if I need windows, or google, or what. I cleared all the pocketcloud data and force stopped it. Then opening it up it asked for VNC, etc. Why would it do that if I am connecting thru gmail? Do I need both to sign into google and use VNC? Anyhow I filled all that out and now I have both Discovered connections and Manual connections on 'My Computers'. I am really not understanding what is going on here. Also, do I need TightVNC running if I'm using Discovered connections? Thanks, Scott
