I have recently purchased a new computer to replace my 3 year old one.
They are both Windows XP and both successfully use a VPN client to connect
to work. One of them can connect the VNC ver 4 viewer to the Solaris 8
system running VNC Server at the other end of my VPN. The new one can't
connect and gives the ubiquitous error 10061. I have added ports 5800 and
5900/tcp inbound/outbound to my firewall and can ping the system I'm trying
to connect to but I cannot telnet to that system using those ports (e.g.:
telnet server.ibm.com 5800 where 'server' is the Solaris box).
