WinVNC - Dun 1.3 Issue

Whew, finally figured it out. When manually specifying the server's IP 
address, set it in "TCP/IP -> Dial Up Adapter #2 (VPN Support)" *ONLY*. I 
was setting it in both dial up adapters listed. I set the IP address to and the subnet mask to

When setting up the client's dial up networking, I left the TCP/IP settings 
all to "Server Assigned". All works well.

Without any connection, Winipcfg reports all zeros at the server end, yet 
when I hover over the VNC icon, it reports After a connection 
is made, it reports *and* (What's the second 
number all about?)

Without any connection, Winipcfg reports all zeros at the client end and after connected. Not sure what that means.

In any event, all works as advertised now. I can access my ISP with the VNC 
server can access it remotely when required. Now, on to implementing some 
sort of file transfer, but I that's another list <g>. (Otoh, 
hints/suggestions are always welcome.)

Thanks for the help - much appreciated.
