Jim,

It almost sounds as if WinVNC is sending back some info but then failing to
read or send the display.  Some thoughts:

Does vncviewer manage to print any info to stdout about the server? (pixel
format, for example).

Have you got an unusual graphics driver loaded on the PC? (It might work in
VGA modem, or with different colour settings?)

You can also try vncviewer with the -debug option if you want to see
everything going back and forth.

Have you got another Windows machine you could use to try the Windows
viewer?
