Sounds to me like you are having a difficult time finding the Page Down
key. Please refer to your keyboard owner's manual. If you still can't
find it, I'll be happy to provide instruction.
As a new user who has read the sparse documents repeatedly, searched
the bloated archives and is still clueless, I fear that I am just not
in your league Tony. That's the shame about open source software and
public newsgroups - it seems they'll let anyone use them.
If someone is looking to make the experience easier for new people, an
indexed online search of the archive would be a big help. As it
stands, the current choices are to search backwards month by month
through three years of content, or download the entire archive at 95
MB. Neither is very helpful to people who aren't interested in making
a career out of VNC but just want to get it to work.
