How To: Deploy UltraVNC to Windows 8


The latest version of Bozteck VNCScan can deploy UltraVNC 1.1.8 to computers on your network running Windows 8.  To accomplish this, we’ve added a new version in your list of profiles named “UltraVNC 1.1.8”. 

The UltraVNC 1.1.8 version was specifically designed for Windows 8 so it should not be deployed to Windows 7 or earlier.  For those version, you could follow the same steps in this article but choose “UltraVNC” instead.

Step 1 – Create A Profile

  1. From the main program window, choose “VNC Deployment Editor”
  2. In the Bozteck VNC Deployment Profile Selector, click the “New Profile” button.
  3. In the Bozteck VNC Deployment Profile Editor, give the profile a descriptive name, select UltraVNC 1.1.8 from the dropdown shown below and set the server password that you would like with this deployment profile.

  4. If you would like to add encryption or include Windows authentication with this deployment package, you can do so under the “UltraVNC Settings” tab.
  5. Press “Save” and close back to the main VENM Console window

Step 2 – Deploy Your Profile

  1. If there are already computers in a managed group, you can select one or more.  If this is a fresh install of VNCScan, you can either fill a managed group with computers from a scan or you can add computers manually from the deployment tool.  Either way, you would click on “Deploy VNC” to get started.
  2. Make sure that the desktop firewall is OFF on the remote computer.  Firewalls will prevent the console from connecting to the LAN computer to deploy UltraVNC.
  3. In the “Bozteck Deployment Tool”, add the computer(s) that you are deploying to and fill out any other information that is pertinent to your environment.
  4. Press the “Deploy” button
  5. First, the script will remove any existing version of VNC from the computer and then it will deploy the new version.
