Hi Berend

Don't blame it on sp3op4! :-) Works fine with me... Seriously:

Have you tried reinstalling?

Are you running VNC as a service or in foreground (default installation)?

Type "netstat -a" in a DosBox. You should see the lines
  TCP    yourhostname:5900                LISTENING
  TCP    yourhostname:5800                LISTENING
(these are the default ports). Maybe you see some other LISTENING ports (not
135 and 10xx)? These could be from VNC. Try to telnet them.

Sorry, no more ideas. Hopefully not completely useless.

Groetjes, (this is from the Netherlands, I suppose?)
