I believe this is a bug. UltraVNC lets one configure it's server to use the SecureVNC DSM plugin without setting a private key or password/passphrase. When having UltraVNC server configured this way, a secure connection between client and server is still made, but I believe the server/client use the connection information to generate the secure key. I am not currently finding the explination on how that works on the UltraVNC forums but know I have read about it previously and know it works for experience (in using the UltraVNC stand-alone viewr to connect to an UltraVNC server configured this way).

I have set the Remote Clients > VNC > DSM plug-in setting to Encrypt connection using: SecureVNC v2.4 and left client pkey path and passphrase both blank. When server is configured this way and attempting to use SmartCode VNC to connect, I receive a :SmartCode VNC Viewer" error box that states "A secure connection could not be established. SecureVNC plugin private key is not set." Whatever the UltraVNC standalone viewer code is doing to negotiate the secure connection to the server, SmartCode VNC viewer is not doing and not allowing a connection.

I am leaving all SecureVNC DSM plugin settings as default.

FYI, I am also using the "New MS Logon" authentication method with Active Directory usernames and passwords for authentication and not VNC Password.

Is this something that might be able to be fixed? If anything further I can provide to help troubleshoot/resolve, let me know!

Thanks!
