I have a bit of a challenging scenario:
I set up a Windows 98 laptop to log some data from a serial device. I planned on accessing the laptop across the internet using RealVNC but with the rush of things I forgot to start the VNC server on the laptop. I'm trying to figure out how to get it started from 300km away
I do have VNC access to another machine on the local network, and through this I have full read/write access to the files on the laptop. Is there any way I can launch the VNC server on the laptop by manipulating some file? I think Win98 machines normally had a task scheduler running, perhaps do something to schedule it to run?
The only other thing I have thought of is to copy the program to the startup folder and then I can probably get someone to restart the laptop. Its just in a pretty inaccessible location so I'm after ideas to achieve the same thing remotely. Any ideas?
