Thanks for all the input, I have discovered the problem. When I experienced
the problem, I was connecting to my WAN using RAS from my home. In the
office, I do not experience the problem. The problem is a firewall issue.

I tend to disagree on this. I have installed VNC on everything from a PDA
(PocketPC), Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Windows
XP networking works in exactly the same way as normal windows does unless
you decided to go fancy and set up the firewall features.
VNC installs and starts as a service just fine on my XP system, the common
things people do not do is install WinVNC as a service and then they have
to activate the service and put in your password.
I keep my VNC service off at most times, but I just turned it on again and
tested it and everything works as it should.
