DirecPC remote logon

By BIINFBPOKCQW ·
I'd like to logon to DirecPC over a home ethernet. This means using the DirectPC software (called Navigator) to establish a dialup uplink, and of course, then, the downlink is satellite. To logon from the connected PC, I right-click on an icon in the system tray and select the "Connect" option. I don't know how to do this from another PC on the lan. There is an auto-dial option built into the Navigator programming, but when I try to use it I get a lot of false dial-ups. That is, network traffic is causing a dialup even though no one is trying to log on. Then question is then, how do I stop the false dialups, or how can I activate the Navigator icon on one PCs system tray from another PC on the lan? Thanks.

DirecPC remote logon

Hi,

The second part first... I'm not sure whether the DirecPC software could be installed on another PC. If its driving some hardware directly attached to the first PC, then I'd guess not.

What you can do, though, is use a console program likeVNC or terminal services to remotely connect to the DirecPC machine.

...for VNC which is free and a great little tool.

As to the auto dial when you leastexpect it... well you really need to look for an option in the DirecPC software to require confirmation of dialing and enable it.

Otherwise you'll need to identify all the software that does net requests of any sort and disable them when not connected. That sounds painful so I'd go with the configuration first!!

Cheers,
Tim.
