Interesting Reg's stance on this.

In a previous article:

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/08/07/macaque_monkey_selfie_wikipedia_copyright_carpetbagging/?page=2

Note the blatant accreditation below the image and a protracted article about the poor little guy.

"Vulture Central's backroom gremlins haven't included the offending monkey shot. Why? Because we haven't got hold of Slater to ask permission to include his picture in this article. Simple courtesy."

Yet, now a US court (not a UK one) has said it's in the public domain ,here you are publishing it with seemingly no accreditation or even exif data (unless for some reason my pc is stripping it).

So c'mon Reg, make up your minds,

RealVNC distances itself from factories, power plants, PCs hooked up to password-less VNC

Lost all faith...

Re: VNC and RDP

VNC doesn't blank the active screen, require admin rights or require any user interaction. Hence we use it along side RDP.

Oh DameWare also uses VNC as default for Linux and Mac boxes as default, in fact they have to have VNC server running.

". My workplace does passwordless vnc too..

If there was a password, it woukd be post-it to the terminal where the session is displayed anyway."

Well, unless the "hacker" in eastern Europe has a bloody amazing pair of binoculars, don't think that would be an issue, certainly better than no password.

"password popups would be somewhat of a disruption to normal use."

What password pop ups? The one you use to connect with, but if you have to connect then it's no big deal, surely?

"Oh well, at least it's all behind NAT"

Would that be the one that VNC is punching a bloody great hole in? I'm just guessing as your security seems so piss poor, I guess your firewall rules are just Any/Any...just to make it a bit easier.

Actually you are right to a degree, but found there is no need to go to this extreme.

Simply disconnect mobile data and hey presto those voice calls work much better.

It's often caused by the phone desperately trying to use 3g, even when the signal is congested (bars make no difference)

We can see this in action in out office all the time. in the day, it flaps between edge and 3g and 2g.

At night, same office, rock solid (and fast-ish) 3g.

So you may get the "signal", but using it is a waste of time.

people will happily wave around a big glowing device in their hands.

Ask them this question

Would you be happy to withdraw a few hundred pounds from a cash point and walk around with it in your hands in a busy crowded area, pop it on a table whilst you a coffee,pop it in pocket or bag with a little cable with a note saying free cash at the end. The, at night, wave it around whilst pointing a torch at it.

General answer would be no, I wouldn't be that stupid.
