Hi Christian,

what do you mean? ISA can *not* enhance the security of VNC as such. ISA can only control who have access to the ports used by VNC.

Hi,

I mean, does I create me unforeseen probs with VNC, because this software is, may be, behaving odd?

Is it a good idea to use VNC?

Christian

Christian,

VNC, PcAnywhere, NetOp, etc... are inherently *all* dangerous softwares because of their functionality. Personally, I hate PcAnywhere because of the complex communications aspects. VNC on the other hand can be classified as 'firewall friendly'. Just one primary TCP connection.

Is it a good idea? If you will use it for outbound, I believe there are no special risks. However, for inbound use you'll have to check if VNC has enough security in house to protect you from non-authorized use. So, it's up to you to decide if the benefits are worth the possible risks.

Regards,
Stefaan
