From what your configuration sounds like you can only use the native viewer
to view your home box. To set it for port 80, set the display in the
properties to 4294961476.
and then in the viewer user server:4294961476
Otherwise I suggest setting up an ssh server at your home to listen on port
80, then you can tunnel the vnc through it and it will be secure.

Subject: chaging default port 5900 to port 80
I've scoured several months' worth archived postings, but I can't find the
answer I need. I have found similar questions, but no valid answer....
- I have a VNC server running on my home computer (Windows)
- I am behind a firewall at work
- I do not administer the firewall
- Using IE 5.5 to connect from the office, the viewer's java applet loads,
prompting me for a password, and I get the following error message when I
try to login: "java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused"
- I can't connect to my VNC server from the office because the firewall is
blocking my connection. Outbound TCP port 80 is the only port allowed at
- Can I change the default port that the VNC server is running on? I would
like to make it run on port 80 instead of the default 5800/5900. How can
this be done?
