It looks like there is a bug in Vine Viewer. It appears that Vine Viewer does not honour the “Server Sharing” settings in Vine Server.
How to Reproduce:
In the Sharing tab of the Preferences of Vine Server 3.0, set “Allow only one VNC connection at a time” BUT UNCHECK “Keep existing viewer if a new viewer tries to connect”.
Start up Your Vine Server.
Run Vine Viewer 3.0 and connect to your Vine Server (ie connect to localhost).
Run another VNC Viewer (eg Chicken of the Sea, Tight VNCViewer etc) and try to connect to your Vine Server.
The other viewers cannot connect. Vine Viewer hogs the VNC connection and does not let go.
- Now do the opposite as follows:
a) Disconnect all viewers from your VNC viewer.
b) Connect to your Vine Server using your second viewer (e.g. Chicken of the Sea etc).
c) Now try to connect using Vine Viewer 3.0.
You can!! Vine Viewer does connect and other viewer dies as expected.
It looks like the problem is with Vine Viewer 3.0 and NOT Vine Server.
It appears that Vine Viewer does NOT honour the “Keep existing viewer if a new viewer tries to connect” setting in Vine Server.
I hope you can fix this small bug.
