Screen Resolution in Windows? - UnknownHostException
Tue Dec 3 20:43:00 2002
Problem here is that the applet will be served through the proxy
connection, but and a BIG BUT, the rfb (vnc) connection still does a
direct connection. There are versions of vnc that will communicate
through a proxy, don't have a list handy though.

I am not able to ping my address. My home firewall (ZoneAlarm)
pings. I gave the VCN server Server rights when I installed it so
should be able to access any port.
I also tried to telnet to port 5900. It simply says:
"Could not open a connection to host: Connect failed"
When I try to connect using the vncviewer, it says:
"Failed to connect to server"
I am fairly certain that the viewer will not connect because it
not directly access the port through the proxy server. I was
that a Web based client would work, as it is configured to
through the proxy server.
