As far as I know, the intended method of running the Java client is to
point a Java-enabled web browser at the machine that is running VNCserver,
port number 5800 + <display number>. VNCserver will then download the Java
applet classes to your machine, the applet will connect back upstream to
the VNCserver machine and start running.
Example: Machine running VNCserver is opus.vnc.com. When you ran
VNCserver, you specified display number 7.
Make sure your web browser has Java enabled, and you may need a fairly new
browser (probably at least Netscape 3.x or IE 3.x).
Point your web browser at :
And (after a download delay) you should be asked for a login password --
the one you specified to VNCserver when you started it.
Hope that helps.
