Dial into a machine.  Then, while dialed in, run winipcfg both on the host
machine and the client machine and make a note of the IP addresses listed
for the PPP adapter.  Hopefully the host machine will have the same IP
address every time and you can use that to run the vncviewer.

127.0.0.1 is a "default" IP that is on every machine with a TCP/IP stack.
It is also called localhost, and refers to the computer itself.  That is,
ping 127.0.0.1 is a way to check that your TCP/IP stack is working.  You're
pinging yourself, without going through any hardware.

If you're going to be dialing in to the computers manually you will probably
use the same IP address for each host in the vncviewer application, and
determine which computer to take over by which number you dial.
