VNC with another port than 5900

You know Mike, I was under that impression too. I was sure I had seen 
others recommend taking that path in the past. I was so sure that I had 
even written up a response to that effect.

However just before hitting the "Send" button, I decided to try to enter a 
negative number. At least on the server side, it just beeped at me when I 
tried to enter the minus sign in the Display Number field. I tried it both 
with the most recent versions of WinVNC and TightVNC.

Maybe it works on other platforms but from what I can tell, negative 
numbers using a minus sign isn't a feasible solution on Windows.
