Good Morning,
I have tried to access caine 2 , I have java installed and TightVNS Viewer as well but it gives either timeout or socket problem.

Does it work from outside the university and outside the UK?

Hi
It works throughout the whole world...
To use vnc you must use the java vnc viewer I supply, which is started by clicking the vnc link in the connection tab.
It uses HTTP CONNECT and uses a special url, so your chances of doing this with your own vnc client is low.
You should use caine 2.5.1, and the previous caine is rather old.
Regards
Gordon.

Thank you for your quick reply.

Java shows this error:
Network Error: Proxy reports "HTP/1.1 403 Forbidden"

PM me with the time you did this, and your IP number, and I will check the logs.
I tested this at home and had no errors, so I suspect it is something you are doing.
Note that some businesses have a local firewall which blocks HTTP CONNECT. Who knows why... Sometimes a local webcache can cause problems.

But just to be sure you are doing it right, remember to boot your machine, wait till it is running, then goto the connect tab and click on vnc. It may take a few seconds to appear (it starts crossed out).

Good Morning,
It is working now ! I have not made any changes except not opening the connect tab after the machine if fully booted.

i have done several different commands even from the dir /home using command: cp /etc/php.ini >> /home/demo/work/misc having create the misc file and still getting the same response as the command above. this leads me to believe i am missing a file somewhere. I have spent hours on this trying to figure it out and any sort of direction would be great.
