Hi William, Scott and other VNC enthusiasts

Your suggested changes worked for me. I am now able to connect remotely to
my home networked VNC servers with both the native vnc viewer and the java

Now, where in the VNC documentation should I have found the specific
information you provided me to solve my problem. Is it there in full view,
and I missed it?

I will soon post questions regarding other problems.

Thanks again.
