Good luck.  Another thing you might try which I mentioned in another post this morning -

You can telnet to port 590x of a VNC server (where x is the display number it uses) , and it should give you back this on at least
3.3.3r9 :

"RFB 003.003"


If it doesn't, then you aren't seeing the port from outside

: Both machines are running XP Pro. I've tried the viewer application and
