The thanks is a bit premature... Your settings are identical to mine, which works perfectly.

Two other things to check at this point.  They are longer shots but are more likely since we've eliminated a few things by verifying
that your config is plain vanilla.

(1) Are you using the default Win2K VGA driver? This can cause problems for VNC. Try switching to SVGA at least.

(2) Check to makes sure that the WinVNC service has access to the desktop in the services configuration.

(3) Try connecting to it using the Java viewer; see if it works.

(4) Finally. try logging to see what you get.  Here's a sample command line that logs in fairly thorough detail:

vncviewer -logfile vnc.log  -loglevel 10  192.168.1.3

(You can set the loglevel as high as 12, but at that point you are actually logging bytes that you read and write).
