Some tips on local display of networked machines
Authored by: signal15 on Jul 01, '04 12:18:56PM

The scroll wheel issue is a problem with the client. It does not understand mouse buttons 4 and 5. It would be trivial to add support for it.

I ran into this issue about 3 years ago, I can't believe they haven't added it yet.

If you head into the Win2VNC forums, there's a patched version you can download that has scroll wheel support. It's what I'm using now.

The only problem I have is that Windows-key events (aka the Command key) aren't picked up and passed along. I've downloaded the source code, and might try and hack it in there, but apparently the Windows key requires some low-level filter to be installed in some Windows command queue, and I haven't quite worked out the kinks yet.

At any rate, the scroll wheel works. :-)

I was the original submitter of the hint and was surprized it didn't get published. Guess Rob's pretty busy. :)

The modified Win2VNC client with wheel support is at http://www.deboer.gmxhome.de/ - I thought I mentioned it in the original submission but I had a few different drafts.

Anyway, I just discovered something GREAT! In re-reading this thread on the win2vnc forum I just got ALT-tab (Apple-Tab) working by simply RTFMing. The patch requires you to have Scroll Lock turned on. Without scroll lock turned on if you hit ALT-tab when on the slave system very wierd things happen but with it turned on everything's great! My boss reports that window apps that force a window into focus (like the chat client Trillian) can also mess VNC up.
