VNC on NT4-Server with Mac client

It sounds like the VNC service may have crashed or hung.

Assuming you are running the server on the default port, you can try a
telnet to port 5900 just to see if it echoes back the RFB protocol number.
If it times out, you can't access the server; if it refuses connection, the
service is no longer running.  If it does echo back a string such as RFB
003.003, then the problem is most likely in the VNCViewer client software.

Subject: VNC on NT4-Server with Mac client


: Dear VNC list,
:
: as a new vnc-user I have the following problem:
: I want to use a NT4-Server without monitor and keyboard as Mac Fileserver.
In
: fact the only task would be to shutdown the machine remotely. VNC
installation
: on Mac was no problem. On the server I first got the message "The SCM
could
: not be contacted - the WinVNC service was not installed" while not beeing
: logged in as admin. It worked as admin and I run VNC as service as
: recommended. Now the problem is, that I get the error "The server could
not be
: found. This may be because the server is not running, or because the
adress of
: the server was incorrect.", after a long period of waiting, when I try to
: connect from the Mac's viewer. The IP adres is correct, VNCserver is
running
: an even a volume of the NT machine is mounted on the Mac's desktop, so
there
: should be no physical problem in the network. The Mac runs with OS 9.1.
What
: could be wrong? Any advice?
:
: Best regards
