VNC on NT4-Server with Mac client

Sorry!!!
everything is working now. The problem was caused by an altered IP adress and
therefor the Mac and the server couldn't get in contact. This is very stupid
and I'm sorry for the trouble. Since I'm only looking for this net every 3
days or so I'm not informed about every change others make. Thanks for your
help,
best regards
Claus



That sounds very odd indeed.

Next thing to check would be the event log; try to see if there are any odd
events showing up.

The strange  thing is that you should get a rejection very quickly over a
local LAN.  What I am concerned about is that you may have significant other
issues with your network if you were getting a connection rejected.

Could you post the actual message you get back?  I am asking because it
sounds more like the attempt to connect is timing out than that it is
connecting and being rejected.  If you can, also do a ping against the
server.
