Blank the screen in KVNC or VNC

  • Hello
    Does anyone know how to blank the screen on the remote pc with KVNC or VNC? This feature is available in the stand-alone version of VNC but I do not see an option in Kaseya.
    Thanks

  • Not sure but I would be interested to know as well.

    We are using a product called Bomgar that provides this. The software is much more superior than VNC.

  • There is actually a registry setting for VNC, but for some reason it keeps getting reset.

    They key is:
    HKLM\Software\RealVNC\WinVNC4 Create a key called BlankScreen (REG_SZ) and set the value to 1

    It also gets set if you go into Status on the VNC tray icon and blank the desktop in advanced settings.

    If anyone figures out how to keep it set, please update it

    Might be worth noting that the registry location in 64Bit OS is differnt...
