You need to set the port seperate from the IP or server name, I added
another text field so you can add a different port.
I use the netbios name here as well, but on the standard port since we are
behind a secure firewall.

Don't do this netboisname:5903 with VNC commander the port must be enter in
its own field in the connection properties.
