VNC Server in Panel 800
Is there a VNC server in Panel 800 (PP865) for remote access?
If so, how can I turn it on?

Yes, there is a VNC server which is enabled through Project\Network Connections\Network Services and then enabling the Remote Access checkbox. The VNC client (Remote Access Viewer) is part of the panel builder CD (may also be in the program files folder as well). The programming manual 3BSE043445R401 discusses the configuration and use of the VNC / Remote Access function at some length as well.
The VNC viewer for Panel 800 (I tested it with ver. 5.1) is called Remote Access Viewer.
It is comming with Panlel Builder 800 ver. 5.1 but needs to be installed separately from Panel Builder. After installation of Remote Access Viewer, there is a help file of using it.
From the manual:
It is possible to access, reflect and control an operator panel from a PC by using the VNC client program Remote Access Viewer together with the built-in VNC server in the operator panel. Remote Access Viewer is a free remote control software derived from the software package TightVNC.
